Meanwhile the political prospects of the corresponding movement in France have been considerably improved by the announcement that Colonel de la Rocque's Parti Social Francais will support M. Doriot, the leader of the Parti Populaire Francais, in the municipal by-election at St. Denis which has followed upon his dismissal from the mayoralty on very questionable grounds by the Minister of the Interior. M. Doriot looks like becoming the bold and dominating leader which the quasi-Fascist movement in France has hitherto lacked. But the difficulty of formulating a common programme for the two parties remains a real one—the place of religion in it will have to be firmly handled—and until it is overcome the alliance at which Colonel dc la Rocque hinted will have to be a loose one.
