The Spectator presents: French Revolution - could it be President Le Pen?

26/04/2017 from 19:00 to 20:15

Marine Le Pen, leader of the Front National, is leading the polls for the first round of the French presidential election on 23 April. Another outsider Emmanuel Macron, could be the only person standing between her and the Élysée Palace. A Le Pen victory, however unlikely, would be a political earthquake for the European Union. Should we welcome a shake-up in the cradle of European revolutions?
Join Andrew Neil and a guest panel to discuss if France is on the brink of a political revolution.

Speakers include:

Melissa Bell, CNN Paris correspondent
Jonathan Fenby, Author and historian
Dominique Moisi, founder and senior advisor at the Ilfri (the French Institute for International Relations)
Anne-Élisabeth Moutet, journalist and political commentator
Robert Tombs, professor of French History at St John's College, Cambridge
