Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I hear what you say about Le Pen... My opinion of Chirac isn't really worse now than then and I'd end up voting for him again, I guess

I'm really pissed off with Fabius because for purely opportunistic reasons he gave legitimacy to the "non" campaign and helped it win. As you may have noticed, I'm still violently pissed at that vote, and thus at him for enabling it - in a way that had zero chance anyway of getting him anywhere anyway: he'll get his 15-20% of the party vote at most (even if Jospin supports him, as he's apparently decided to do)

The real danger with Fabius is that he decides to be a renegade candidate anyway, outside the party. He'd get a couple per cent at most, but that could be enough to damage the official socialist candidate.

I wouldn't put it past him after the past two years.

I also wouldn't be surprised at all if he did that.

What information do you have on Jospin's decision to back Fabius?

Le Chained-Up Duck?

I think so. I don't have the copy with me right now, but I think that's where I saw it.

Another disappointment from Jospin.

I have now grabbed a copy and updated the diary.

Petty and extremely disappointing of Jospin.
