Marine Le Pen: EU will collapse like the Soviet Union

The leader of France’s   far-Right party has vowed that the European   Union would “collapse like the Soviet Union” as she conspired to   form what would be the most radical faction yet seen in the European   parliament. 

Marine Le Pen, buoyed   by a weekend by-election triumph in southern France, criticised the   EU as a “global anomaly” and pledged to return the bloc to a “cooperation of   sovereign states”. 

She said Europe’s population had “no control” over their economy or currency,   nor over the movement of people in their territory. 

“I believe that the EU is like the Soviet Union now: it is not improvable,”    she said. “The EU will collapse like the Soviet Union collapsed.”

Ms Le Pen, 45, will   next month travel to Holland to chart a joint campaign with Geert Wilders,   whose anti-Islamic Freedom Party (PVV) currently tops national opinion polls   for May’s European elections.
