Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
while the government says that high-school and university students have no legitimacy to demonstrate in opposition to the reform, which is "being carried out for them".

Sarko seems to be working from an alternate thesaurus than the one I have. Or an alternative version of democracy. Because in the version of democracy I am used to, it's the people who tell politicians whether they have legitimacy or not, rather than the other way around...

Though I suspect that Messrs Sarkozy, Putin and Corruptioni might have a productive weekend with their respective constitutions, a pair of scissors and a can of superglue...
