The most alienated place in the whole of metropolitan France

Is not, in fact, the Deux Magots cafe, but rather would appear to be the commune of Gorre, in the département of Haute Vienne, in the region of Limousin (That's just to the south west of the centre of France).

Limousin came up with the highest rate of active abstentions (by way of blank or spoiled ballot papers) at 2.02%, Haute Vienne was the worst in Limousin at 2.14%, and Gorre was the worst in Haute Vienne by a country kilometre at 10.78%. Having had a look at it on Google Earth, it is 15 miles south west of Limoges and surrounded by open countryside. Looks pleasant enough, and although it is 20 odd miles from Oradour sur Glane, which must be a bit depressing, you would think that they would have come to terms with it by now.

Neither google.fr nor the Limoges daily La Croix gives any indication as to what is going on in Gorre that its burghers cannot or will not vote properly. Of those who could be bothered to get it right, Sego just edged Sarko. Things were much worse in Mayotte, an overseas department in the Indian Ocean, but that's another story.
