French presidential elections

So we're voting on Sunday for either Marine LePen, from the National Front, or Emmanuel Macron, independent.

One wag said it's a choice between Oedipus who killed his father (Madame LePen expelled her father from the party he founded - because of his anti-semitic remarks, I think) and Oedipus who married his mother (Monsieur Macron married his French teacher, 24 years his senior).

The televised debate between the two last night was lively and conflictual.
