Interviewing Le Stylo

John Laughland interviews Le Pen in The Spectator is quite good. It doesn't tell us much that is new, though. Le Pen is a complex character with more of a reactionary than a fascist bent. Even the Guardian runs pieces like that.

I must admit that John is a bit soft on him, which is a shame as his Intelligence Digest is always worth reading, as is his book The Tainted Source.

The piece about Le Pen in the resistance, if true, is overwhelmingly important to John who seems to think that those who supported Hitler were all evil and those who opposed him were good. So Le Pen is less of a fascist than Sartre or Mitterrand.
