More on the French Socialists

Having been under the impression that Segolene Royal had the nomination in the bag, it looks as though I could scarcely be more wrong - just about every French Socialist seems to be jockeying for it. Liberation has gone through the runners and riders in the wake of Jospin's comments the other day:

Sego: "This changes nothing: I have always said that I will support the best placed candidate. If it is not me, I will support whoever is. We will see in September".

Fabius's right hand man: "We don't feel in the least concerned by this intervention".

A Dominique Strauss-Kahn ally: Takes LJ's 'availability' quite well.

Jack Lang: "Will the former culture minister be the first to stand down in order to aide a Jospin candidature, as the whisper in the Parti Socialiste has it ? "It is a pleasant joke", he says.

Francois Holland's spokesman: "We'd always assumed there would be a Jospin candidature".

So there you have it - almost as many contenders as there will be for the Democratic nomination next time, or come to that, rather more than for the Labour leadership. Going lowbrow for a bit, whoever wins, we lose....
