How do we know that they are not a neo-Vichy party? Yes, it's great that she's anti-Islamist and her piece in the NYT this week makes sense, but until I hear her slam the 1940s Vichy regime, I'll remain skeptical of this party. We don't know yet if she is a French Thatcher or just a continuation of her father in nicer garb.
