Last weekend, France's far-right National Front staged what it billed as a rebranding; a party conference where it changed its name and kicked out honorary president Jean-Marie Le Pen. But the rebranding only went so far. Donald Trump's former advisor Steve Bannon was there, concluding a tour of Europe that also saw him campaign for Italy's far-right Liga and meet Germany's anti-immigrant AfD. The provocations of a dyed in the wool provocateur? Or the rise of a transatlantic far-right alliance?
