Imagine if David Cameron was less popular than Cliff Richard...

Well, ish.

Le Figaro is greatly amused by the ratings for the French terrestrial TV stations last night, with Ségolène Royal extended whinge interview attracting a 15.1% share or 3.19 million viewers. I think that most opposition leaders in these parts would be cracking open the cans of light ale if they could secure that much interest the thick end of five years away from an election.

And the really amusing bit - Johnny Hallyday scooped the pool with a 26% share for his appearance on the French equivalent of The Bill / Inspector Morse, Commissaire Moulin. Sego was also outgunned by a dubbed US drama, Prison Break, and some kind of Christmas thing.

Le Figaro also notes that ratings for her interview with PPdA on Tuesday collapsed by the first commercial break, but the lady's not for turning (off...) - she will be exercising digits on remotes on both Sunday and the 15th.

Meanwhile, polled French would prefer to see Socialists Strauss-Kahn (now head of the IMF) and the Mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë with important roles in the future - this being the boilerplate question in French polling. That 36% want an important role for Olivier 'Trot' Besancenot is frankly terrifying.

And those evil Anglo Saxons dare suggest that French culture is dead!

Zut alors!
