Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It appears that this site has the interview, which is about his support for the constitution, which as lefties both you and I were against. Oh hold on. Nooo, didn't we both argue in favour of it? Silly us.

Interestingly, it contains the following passage:

"It was a beautiful song," he said. As I left the bar, I asked le patron whether he had truly fait les barricades with Cohn-Bendit in 1968.
"Yes, of course," he said. "And we still need a revolution in France. We should be more like your country, like Britain. France will never succeed until we have the right to hire and sack people whenever we like."

The veteran of the barricades had become a man of the right, then? No, he said, he was still a man of the left. And therefore stoutly for the "non".

I told him that Cohn-Bendit was for the "oui".

"What? Really? He"s changed sides then."
