Prospects for a live remake of 'Day of the Jackal'.

Le Monde has, very helpfully, counted up the number of tooled up and be-ear pieced goons trailing the various candidates, although the figures do jump around a bit.

Sarkozy would seem to offer the greatest challenge, as he is reckoned to have a security detail of 20, although whether that is per engagement or in total is not clear. Sego trails with a mere dozen. Given that assassins, until fairly recently, tended to be from the revolutionary left, I suppose bedsit Marxists etc will have to ask themselves whether class traitors or class enemies are the higher priority...

Elsewhere, it notes that Bayrou and De Villepin have goons too, but it does not give a figure. Le Pen has his own crew of brown shirts (plus plod too, presumably), while the far left candidates shun all offers of police protection. As to duck wannabe Nihous, no figure is mentioned.

Class enemies or class traitors...? A gendarme's lot is [apparently]not a happy one - or as the saying in the canteen goes: Souffle ca pour un jeu de soldats.

O/T: HG (if you are reading this) - sorry I did not respond to your hilarious and imaginative interpretation of my "fot" typo a few entries down. I admit it made me grin somewhat! Been off for a while and have only just managed to catch up. Oh fot a beeyutiful evenink....

Perphaps we can find a job for Prescott yet when he leaves government.

Nomad - I was applying 'enemy' to Sarko and 'traitor' to Sego, rather than to les flics.

CU - I'm unconvinced. Although he would make a substantial, if loud, draught excluder.

Nomad, I've been working on words set to music and so odd sounds carrying lots of meaning pounce on me.

HG: I wish you the very best of luck in your endeavours and to that end I hereby donate fot to you Free Of Charge. I will not now ask if you "Geddit?".
