France's very confused right wing voters

One of the oddities of French polling is that voters are asked a question along these lines, 'Which of the following would you like to see playing an important role in the future', and a laundry list of politicians is then offered up. Like this.

Had they been asking me, I would reply 'no' to every last member of the Left, but 50% Gaullists would like to see 'an important role' for Strauss Kahn, thus making him the Right's favourite leftie. In contrast, the reverse sees Jean-Louis Borloo (1) as the Left's fave. Neither Sarko nor Fillon are in the list, by the way.

While that is all fairly disturbing, the truly unnerving finding is that 18% of Gaullists want a role for Trot postman Besancenot (2), and 15% want a role for Communist Marie-George Buffet, who - hilariously - was Minister of Youth Affairs and Sport when in her 50s.


(1) - I had never heard of him, but he is Minister for being nice to trees and not putting up too many ugly buildings of Ecology and Sustainable Development and Planning. The most interesting thing about him would appear to be his wife, who is an ex news reader, and who has the most bizarre personal website - if you want clips of her reading the news, or photos of her reading the news, or the lyrics to a song composed for her by her former husband, then make haste to beatrice-schonberg.c.la. She is quite pretty in that groomed way of newsreaders the world over.

(2) Oliver has been a silly boy and has not renewed his Presidential campaign domain name - besancenot2007.org - and it has been squatted. It has pop ups and a list of retail etc type links, including one for champagne, golf maps and so forth. Perhpas, like Bevan, Besancenot thinks 'Nothing is too good for the working classes'.
