Brigitte Bardot calls Marine Le Pen 'modern Joan of Arc'

Former actress Brigitte Bardot says she hopes the far-right leader will be the saviour of France in a Paris-Match interview before her 80th birthday

Brigitte Bardot, the 1960s icon of liberated, bikini-clad French womanhood, has described the far-right leader Marine Le Pen as "the Joan of Arc of the 21st century" in an interview with Paris-Match.
The magazine published a topless photo of the former actress, taken in 1967 when she was 33, on its cover this week as she prepares to celebrate her 80th birthday in September.
"I am a native Frenchwoman and proud of it," Bardot said. "I mourn the fact that my beautiful country has deteriorated in every way. It's criminal to submit to these depths."
Now an animal rights activist, she is an outspoken supporter of Ms Le Pen's anti-immigration Front National party, which topped the vote in European elections earlier this year amid widespread discontent with the Socialist government over record unemployment and the stagnant economy.
"I hope she [Ms Le Pen] saves France. She is the Joan of Arc of the 21st century," Bardot said. Burned at the stake for heresy in 1431, Joan of Arc is a Roman Catholic saint, sometimes referred to as the "mother of the French nation".
Bardot was chosen in 1969 as the first model for images of Marianne, the female figure used as a national emblem of the French republic and displayed in many public buildings.
According to Paris-Match, Bardot "may not have changed the face of the world" but she did change "the way we live" with "her motto, 'liberty, equality, sensuality'".
She has often criticised Muslims and has supported Ms Le Pen's campaign to prevent schools from serving Halal meat.
She also spoke of her private life, saying she had taken delight in "loving passionately". Asked which of her lovers she had preferred, the thrice-married Bardot replied "the next one".
She said she wanted to be buried "alongside my animals" in the grounds of her villa in Saint-Tropez, where she hoped to find "the peace that has always been denied me during my lifetime".

Le Pen Favourite to Win First Round of French Presidential Vote
by Liam Deacon
30 Jan 2017

Marine Le Pen is on course to win the first round of voting in this year’s French presidential elections, a shock poll has revealed.

The Front National leader is still likely to lose out in the second round voting, however, as those from both left and right will unite against her, the Kantar-Sofres poll for Le Figaro suggested.

In the first-round vote in April, Ms. Le Pen would come first with 25 per cent. Conservative candidate François Fillon would garner 21-22 per cent and centrist Emmanuel Macron can expect 20-21 per cent.
...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
