United in their hatred of Breton


In the clip above we can see Jean-Luc Mélenchon of the far-left state-nationalist Parti de Gauche having a cosy chat with Marine le Pen of the far-right state-nationlist Front National. Who would have thought that they could stomach each other let alone have such an amiable chat. 

Both have in the past expressed a great hostility towards Frances regional languages - le Pen attacking bilingual sign posts and Mélenchon describing the Diwan Breton schools as a sect.

Both rather populist and opportunist in approach maybe they have more in common than we think.
