French politician seeks power - Socialists shocked

Or the Parti Socialiste failing dismally to find its own backside, despite the use of both hands, a barrage of klieg lights and a handy 'How to' guide.

Sarkozy's successful wooing of Kouchner has confused the poor dears terribly: "One can see the manoeuvre : with very little time, just three weeks, before the first round Sarkozy seeks to be unfettered the day after the legislative elections" rued François Holland. "Is it really necessary to crush [all opposition], to dominate, to seize all the ground?". Elsewhere, Julien Dray thinks that Sarko is trying to destabilise the left, and would seem to regard this as less than full adherence to Marquis de Queensberry rules. Source.

Perhaps les rouges think that the gentlemanly thing for the UMP to do is to not contest the election too enthusiastically, and maybe give them a clear run at certain seats, and perhaps a few hints and tips. All that's missing is a chorus of 'It's not fair'.

The Alpes Maritimes left are thrilled by the Sarkozy victory; and Le Pen kept to a close second means they needn't confess to having voted Sarkozy with conviction.

Who is Julien Dray,that he should lay bare and deplore such a successful left- destabilisation policy?

(One lost post later).

They are a bit crafty, those Gauls, eh?

As to Dray, Le Monde just called him a spokesperson, although he looks to be a deputy for the rather dull Paris burbs. I think he looks more like a Francois, or perhaps a Jacques than a Julien. Maybe it is the combination of a well-fed face and a goatee.
