Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Arnaud Montebourg.
Nitpicking,yes, but somehow not just for the fun of it.
I have the feeling that the name is here to stay.  A sort of young lefty maverick from his beginning till today, with radical ideas he is not afraid to defend and a knack for receiving media attention for it, but quite realist in the inner-party politics if one looks closely. He seems to get some presence on TV, even if a polarizing one, at least from heasrsays (not being in France myself).
He got nominateds spokeperson for the candidate Segolene Royal, on track for higher functions.
Time will tell.
And no, he is not an ENA guy (he failed the selection) That makes 2 with Sarkozy, what is wrong with France?

La répartie est dans l'escalier. Elle revient de suite.
