Benoit Hamon – the ‘French Bernie Sanders’ – Goes from Underdog to Socialist Favourite (Link)

“Benoit Hamon, who was a surprise winner of the first round of the French Socialists’ presidential primary on Sunday, was the furthest to the left of the top three contenders. Hamon, 49, whose signature proposal is the introduction of a universal basic income, shot up in voter surveys during a rushed campaign that saw three debates in little over a week in January.” ~ The Local – France’s News in English

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
