Something to note for future reference

Here is a chart 'borrowed' from tns-sofres.com, a French pollster (Merci...):


The figures in blue are the percentages of French folk judging that the political class cares what the people think, and the red the reverse. The only time an absolute majority have felt listened to was in September 1977, under the less than man o' the people President Giscard, and - rather worryingly - anti-semite Raymond Barre. Disillusionment has been highest under Sarko / Fillon (now) and under the unspeakably vile Mitterand and the, tiptoeing around the laws of defamation, less than brilliant Édith Cresson.

Anyway, considering how supine the French media is, no-one can seriously accuse the meeja of undermining faith in the political process, so given the Gauls view their pols with such a high degree of cynicism, mull on that the next time some odious fraud from the Labour party attacks the media.

Supine? Le Monde? Libey? The equally leftist France Inter?
