Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
   " *  a woman can't stand up to a "real man" in a debate;"

nothing to do with her sex, Sarko is dam good at debating  and has ideas.

   "* public servants are lazy;"

pretty much a fact :
those who wanted to become public servant before 1980 (low unemployment, low level of qualification needed) were the lazy and under-performing ones.the socialist pary is mainly a teachers' organization and they are quite happy to let 400,000 youth leaving without qualification/education as long as noone touch their five months of holidays (and their children climb the social ladder)

    "* that Royal would be exclusively backed by aforesaid public servants. "
 if the election follows the previous one, 95% of them and their family will vote for her, public servants support is a bit more than essential.

  • Royal too is darn good at debating and has ideas, a darn sight better ones than the authoritarian economic-liberal crap Sarko serves up;

  • back up that "pretty much a fact", if not it's an empty smear;

  • Royal will not be counting on public servants alone, which is what I said.
