Marine Le Pen visited Lampedusa on Monday. She was greeted by a rabble of protesters holding up signs in French saying "Solidarity with the undocumented", "Liberty, equality, fraternity for the undocumented too", "Racists out", "Lampedusa isn't racist", "The world is coloured, resign yourself to it".

As the Independent reported:

Ms Le Pen spoke to two immigrants during a tour of the island's holding centre. "I have a lot of compassion for you but Europe can't welcome you," she said. "We don't have the financial means."


Meanwhile, Claude Guéant, the UMP's immigration minister criticised the visit and claimed that the National Front would not act as a compass for the UMP. He then immediately contradicted himself, however, by saying that the French wanted France to remain France, proving that Marine Le Pen is now setting the pace in French politics.

These are the advantages of travel, that one meets so many men whom one would otherwise never meet, and that one feeds as it were upon the complexity of mankind.
