The French update

Given that Sego's 100 points in her Villepinte speech were covered adequately elsewhere, I decided to spare myself translating all the Enarque speak. However, Le Figaro's poll on what the Gauls thought of it all is in, so here goes:

First off, the fun bit - 35% had not seen, read or heard of the speech. 26% of Socialist sympathisers had seen it pass them by, which is perhaps to their credit.

Those who did watch, read etc would appear not to have been paying attention, in that the highest recall for any measure was 43%, in this case the raising of the SMIC (minimum wage). A pitiful 9% could recall the boot camps for miscreant adolescents.

Socialist sympathisers would seem to be bracing themselves to hurl 'revisionist at Sego in that 35% reckoned her 100 points varied to some degree from the Socialist programme. A shameful 11% of Socialist party sympathisers could not muster sufficient anayltical skill to judge whether it was or was not different. 71% of Right voters reckoned it was a somewhat or not very different, so no Blair style breakthrough with Fontainebleu Femme or Megane Mec by the look of things.

As to the programme (even if they could not recall what was in it), 29% of Left sympathisers - including Trots, Greens, Tankies etc presumably - did not find it convincing, 37% did not find it innovative and 32% did not find it 'solid'.

Still, at least she did not hack off her core vote, in that only 2% of the Left, and 3% of PS sympathisers had a worse opinion of her post-programme. 10% of the Right thought worse of her, and 8% better of her. For both sides, opinions were majority unchanged.

The most amusing finding is that 7% of PS sympathisers judge her too left wing, while just over a third must want full blown class war, penal taxation, 'the commanding heights of the economy ' etc etc as she was deemed insufficiently gauche. Some 19% of Right voters thought she was not Left wing enough. Erm, if you are not voting for her, why the concern - to have someone you feel better voting against?

The thing that struck me about this speech was just how bad she is at public speaking. Her voice is monotone and she stresses the wrong words (a bit like Dubya). It seemed as though she was reading through the speech for the first time. I am not at all surprised at people's inability to recall what she said; my overriding impression was boredom, so I voted with my remote control and switched channels.
