Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Very big yuk, indeed Cyrille. Dassault is of course an heir-to-a-fortune UMP senator and owner of the main rightwing newspaper in the country, and he is an insulting slob.

Meanwhile the Omnipresident said in a speech on Sunday that he had garnered in ten billion euros and the blokes in the factories knew what that meant to them. Except:

  1. it's not as much money as that, as the Elysée is now admitting (some is old contracts, some will await confirmation, like slob Dassault's fighters), and there's  the confirmed sum of 300 million euros (!) going round;

  2. Sarko looks really silly now, since Kadhafi is rubbing his nose in it by saying there has been no discussion of human rights at all. And he's here for several days, what fun!

I think it's more than time for Rama Yade to resign. Useless to expect Bernard Kouchner to do so.
