«I want to destroy the EU, not Europe! The EU is deeply harmful, it is an anti-democratic monster. I want to prevent it from becoming fatter, from continuing to breathe, from grabbing everything with its paws and from extending its tentacles into all areas of our legislation.» M. Le Pen, 3 June 2014

« …the European flag, the one I will banish from official buildings.» M. Le Pen, 18 April 2017

«The issue of [the existence of] gas chambers [in Nazi concentration camps], I think we should be allowed to also discuss this issue.» Jean-François Jalkh [temporary president of Front National] April 2000

«But you think that there is real freedom of the press in France [when compared with Putin’s Russia]? Ninety-nine percent of the journalists are leftists!.» M. Le Pen, 3 June 2014

ABC postdoc in Olso

Jukka Corander sent me the announcement that he is opening a 3 year postdoctoral position at the University of Oslo, to work with him and his team on ABC projects. This sounds quite an exciting offer, plus gives the nominee the opportunity to live in the most enjoyable city of Oslo for several years in fairly comfy conditions! The deadline is May 31. (If I was at a stage of my career where applying made sense, I would definitely candidate. Not even waiting for the outcome of the French elections on May 7!)

ne rien lâcher
