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

I think the investigations have made it clear (stream...) that none of it is true. The whole scandal, in fact, is that this was apparently a political plot cooked up to throw a big banana skin under rivals' feet, and, in particular, of Sarkozy's. And the chickens are coming home to roost with Defence Minister Alliot-Marie, and more still with PM de Villepin, with, (as always) the president looming untouchably in the background.

This could even be from the onset a political plot by Sarkozy, for all we know.

Urrgh, court politics.

If they have time over for intrigue their working hours are probably too short.

This is what a 35 hour work week brings. ;)

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.

Yep. Not that the above discussion on financial corruption is without interest (%), but the scandal here is about political shenanigans. Slander by anonymous denunciation.
