French far-right journalist Eric Zemmour cast as Macron election rival - BBC News
With six months to go until the next French presidential election, it’s not Emmanuel Macron or Marine Le Pen dominating the magazine front covers. A new face in French politics, Eric Zemmour, hasn’t even formally announced his candidacy yet, but polls suggest he’s on track to challenge Le Pen for leadership of the hard right in France. The child of Jewish Algerian immigrants, Zemmour has long drawn attention for his controversial views. Now, he says, France is being "submerged" by migrants, and parents should be forced to give their children "French names". His speech at a rally in Béziers targeted France's education system - "infiltrated by Marxism, anti-racism, and LGBT ideologies", in his view. The BBC’s Lucy Williamson attended the rally to meet him. Please subscribe HERE #BBCNews #France
