En Macron

As is all over the news, Emmanuel Macron beat Le Pen to win the French Presidential election with a larger than expected majority.

Much still remains to be seen, not least whether his En Marche movement can win enough seats in the upcoming Assembly elections in June.

But for now there is still time to acknowledge that, rather than pandering to the far-right, Macron fought an outward-looking, optimistic and openly liberal campaign. And won.
