"A rightwards swing on a European scale"

That's what a professor at Science Po in Gay Paree is calling it, noting that of the 11 general elections in Europe since 2007, the Right has retained or taken power except in Spain.

And there's more:

"In countries where the [far?] Left is strong...social democratic / socialist have suffered significant reverses. That is the backdrop to the election in Rome and London". Further details at Le Monde.

Maybe Broon should have used that as part of his grab bag of excuses in his interview with Marr this morning.

Meanwhile, some descriptions of Boris from the French dailies:

"This extravagant figure of the Right....this painted bird" Le Monde. (L'oiseau bariolé is also a novel and a Paris gay bar. Ho hum)

"Eccentric Conservative". Le Figaro

"Eccentric" La Tribune.
