Mais QUI veut des Anglais dans l’Europe?

There you go, they can laugh at us and never feared that some chav would storm the office and gun them down – and then have people like Joe Sacco, Salon Magazine and the Pope implicitly blame the victims. Get my meaning? But perhaps the analogy is not apt? France’s historical record of anti-Arab racism and Islamophobia is not the same as its historical disdain of the English. So, if you want a more apposite analogy, perhaps google ‘Charlie Hebdo Shoah Hebdo, for is  lampooning of the links between the commemoration of the holocaust and rationalisation for the victimisation of the Palestinians.

But they no longer trump nearly everything else when voters make up their minds. Politics has always been multidimensional, of course. It’s that analysts of voting behaviour and public opinion used to be able to conveniently collapse most of these dimensions into the left-right spectrum. Nowadays, that’s becoming harder and harder to do.
