Looks like Sego has just lost the Corsican vote

A noted French impersonator would appear to have fooled Ségolène Royal into thinking that he was the Prime Minister of Quebec, and engaged her in conversation for some 11 minutes.

In the light of her blundering into the Quebec issue with all the subtlety of a saloon bar drunk, 'Jean Charest' decided to have some fun over Corsica, suggesting it might seek independence, and Sego replied, laughing, thus:

'"The French would not be against that" before adding: "but do not repeat that. That would make for an incident, that idea..It is a secret", with a further burst of laughter'.

So far, no response from the Royal camp....

As to Corsican secessionists, if I could persuade Corsica Nazione to open, I would fill in the details on the platform of the legal party. A referendum on greater autonomy split 49.02% yes, 50.98% no in 2003. The wiki entry on the Fronte di Liberazione Naziunale di a Corsica seems a little confused, or else has been computer translated from a French original, as it notes that it is "a militant group that advocates an autonomous state on the island of Corsica, independent from France".

Corsica is a very attractive place, from what I've seen of it, but I suspect it leads, if not the world, than at least France in terms of the number of road signs riddled with bullet holes.

France tv 3 has a poll which says that 60pc think Wendolene has made a gaffe. Certainly seems a BIG ISSUE on google-actu. (Patate chaude in Quebec)

All the big hitters post here, so l'Empereur des Français is in good company.

Thank you for the insight.
