Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sarko is, of course, right about Blair. The relevant question is "is this a good thing".

On the youth employment figures - you know, there is quite a lot of moving parts in the analysis which have relevance. For one thing, formation is different, and student retention as well. And not enough access to elite levels of education in France on top of it all.

There are many ways to address this issue, the important thing is that they be proposed, lest Sarko take up the space ideologically and stake his ground. 20+% youth unemployment is a problem.
