Martine Aubry

Not as well known in these parts as perhaps she should be, but as Delors 2.0 (his daughter) she could well end up making trouble for more than the unfortunate French people.

Anyway, IFOP has made her the star of its poll on who's up, who's down etc among the French political class, and the findings are quite telling:

#1 reason for having a good opinion of her - among French socialists - is that 'she is faithful to the values of the left' - 40%, followed by 25% who still think that the job destruction scheme that was the idiotic, no, evil 35 hour maximum working week is a good idea. The rest rate her for he mayoral role in Lille (20%) and for her being well placed to take the PS back to power (14%).

Meanwhile on the other side of the fence, among UMP voters 67% have a bad opinion of her for the same malignant 35 hours scheme, 16% for being too authoritarian and 14% for being too left wing. Mind you, only one per cent think she's made a hash of Lille, which is odd as surely more than 1 in 100 UMP voters must be groaning under her kitten heel.

As to the man of the moment, 72% of Gauls have a positive opinion of Paris mayor Delanoë, followed by 70% who like Bernard Kouchner, the lefty quack who serve as Sarko's foreign minister. Nice piece of grande tente politics there Nicolas, Further highlights, 66% rate that old villain Chirac, 61% Trot postie Besancenot (I despair of them sometimes), 58% Trot bank clerk Laguiller and 51% professional protester José Bové. That only 54% rate Elisabeth Guigou might have something to do with her looks having fallen off a cliff and then bgone for a bounce along the beach followed by a prolonged pounding by the Atlantic. So as not to be any more ungallant, I won't add pics but rather invite those interested to compare and contrast this with this.

Off Topic (very sorry) but from the Gibraltar Chronicle

A rabidly anti-British Argentinian has just been appointed to head the UN Committee on Decolonisation (Mmm, Falklands, anyone?).

Our politicians have to go and tug their forelocks to him next month. I sense a lack of fun for our overseas territories for the next few years with him grandstanding for attention.

The exact page

Geoff - thanks for that grim news. I'll knock up a post about it.
