It's Not Just France

The extreme right is on the march everywhere:

The trouble is that the Danish People's Party [which has succeeded in closing Danish borders and repudiating the Schengen agreement] is not alone. There are the True Finns in Finland, the Hungarian Jobbik party, the Dutch Party for Freedom, the Italian Northern League, the Austrian Freedom party, the Sweden Democrats and the National Front in France, led by the politically astute Marine Le Pen. All are on the rise, and it's not easy to see what might slow their progress.
