Just a quick French update

Liberation has the deathless headline 'French Muslim organisations not overly concerned' over its report on you know what.

Meanwhile, the French socialists are still in ferret in a sack mode. The Herald Tribune has a good run down of what's what (and it saves me having to do too much translating). No hoper Jospin is plugging the old Bennite line of 'never mind the opinion polls, feel the ideology' while Sego has instead gone for the 'I've got this sewn up, so stop bickering and unite behind me' approach.

Perhaps there could be some sort of wrestling 'death match' between whoever wins there and whoever wins for Labour here, with winner takes all. If so, and for the sake of Albion, I hope Labour chooses wisely and chooses Prescott..

I thought Jospin was dead.

Jospin certainly has "something-of-the-corpse" about him.

I wonder if the wonderfully coiffed and perma-tanned, man in black, Jack Lang might not emerge as a compromise candidate....if Sego screws up.

DP - To adapt Gene Hackman in 'Unforgiven', "So did I - it just turned out I was living in Haute Garonne".

Lang does indeed fancy his chances....

Be interesting to see what happens to mon-sewer Chirac when he finally gets turfed out on his ear, sweet FA probably. How I yearn for a worldwide revolution

There's an exchange I read somewhere in which a Gaul argued that Bush could never be the President of France because 'he is too stupid', with the American retort being that Chirac could not be President of the US as 'he would be in jail'.

1 - Jack Lang (MP for Boulogne, btw)? Naa, too old/trop vioc.

2 - So why isn't George Bush in jail?
