Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not much of a surprise (sadly): Manuel Valls, the Interior Minister, was once rumored to enter the Sarkozy government; he was Hollande's campaign manager; now, he and JM.Ayrault have clearly taken over the government, leaving Martine Aubry marginalized.

Generally speaking, Socialist governments carrying out right wing policies are hardly a novelty in Europe those days: I've been wondering whether Hollande would turn out to be the French Zapatero; too early to call, but it doesn't look good.
