    Peculiar how people here make bets loose and then refuse to pay up hey? Then start another topic similar to that one talking about bets, you sir are not to be trusted and anything you type should be considered a lie.

    The wager in question was has been amiably settled in January, and had nothing to do with you whatsoever.

    You seem to really cling to the past. Nothing wrong with learning from it, but even more can be learnt by letting it go.

    Breathe in, breathe out.

    Rinse and repeat.

    Déjà vu. Another election where the campaign for the opponent of a pro-Kremlin candidate gets it's e-mails hacked.

    I would like to see Le Pen win simply to continue the trend of voters saying f u to the old Progressive ways (in my opinion). However, I don't think France (or Germany for example) will ever be able to break away from the leftist candidates like in other places. It is a shame because the leftist policies there have left both countries in shambles compared to what they were before all the "immigration" and the socialistic EU formation (why should a successful financial country like Germany have to bear any brunt from financially deadbeat countries like Greece and others?). What person in their right mind would have thought that was a good idea for the individual countries to join together?(other than those behind the curtain in charge - like those who run the US)

    In betting terms Trump was given a 16.6% chance of winning in the days leading upto the election with odds of 5.5/1.

    The outcome of the 2017 French Presidential Election should be clear by 20:00 CEST Sunday in Paris, which corresponds to 04:00 AEST on Monday.

    French mentality (and most of Europe for that matter) has long leaned to the left authoritarianism, maybe it's due to the old feudal dominance over people's lives where the majority have looked to a ruling class to guide them.

    I'm thankful Australia was colonised by the Brits for that reason.

    And who ever said it was just the "right" that playing dirty need to look at the magic Macron has pulled out of the hat with the alleged HACK>>>>>>
    What better way to keep YOUR NAME on the tip of everyone's tongue when you are not allowed to campaign than faking a hack so you are mentioned in every news bulletin.
    This guy has some smart cookies on his team to pull this out.
    Now i just hope people see it for what it is and go vote LePen

    well i put $30 on lepenn to win @8:1 at sports bet. I just checked and the odds are now 10:1

    ( wound not bet with that welcher rosswell crash survivor)

    I did not want to bet much as I am not sure if she will win and am not too sure on french politics. But 8:1 in a 2 horse race is not bad odds when they are close.

    For $30 bucks it was worth the risk.
    Unfortunately Macron looks to have made the pres seat and that is going to spell doom for France.
    I think we may see $15 silver by the end of the day now.

    The French revolution was more like the Bolshevik revolution. Eject one lot of authoritarians who represented their own interests ie the monarchists with another lot of even more murderous authoritarians. That's the French way.
