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

I think that 75%"magnanimous compromise" mixed with the remainder of "boyish self deprecation" would be a smart tactical cocktail for Sarko- it would undermine the coming strikes. "Well, he compromised when the transport workers gave in---".
I think the press will tell us about it endlessly if he does offer real compromise- Sarko's image problem seems to be that he is emerging as the hyperkinetic snarling  egoist- almost the white nose effect, -rather like Uribe in Colombia- and that will need repairs.

"Come on, Nicholas- blow your nose before you go out there, and for God's sake stop biting reporters!"

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.

Well, I don't. What did he give to the medical students that were on strikes ? we don't know about it. What did he give to the fishermen on strike ? we don't know. The only time he went to see train drivers, he showed himself utterly incompetent on the subject - and we didn't hear about it. When it was reported he had a racist talk with other countries' head of states - we didn't hear about it.

MSM has stopped reporting about Sarkozy. It is only reporting what the Elysée wants it to say.
