Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A couple of things I just picked up on TV while cooking:

  • a clip of SR at that meeting saying that there might be money to be made by "finance and the media" if NS won, but there would certainly be money to be lost if the left won. She said that very levelly with a steady glint in her eye. Looked like a genuine declaration of war to me.

  • Sarko has ping-ponged back to the right: support for Mohammed cartoonists, speech where he promises to make life uncomfortable for (Muslims unspecified) those who force their family to abide by religious rules, speech to "rapatriés" (former French inhabitants of North Africa) saying if France had to apologise to anyone over Algeria, it was to them (there he is straight picking a fight with Algeria).

  • Le Pen's response? (Roughly): he's ploughing the field where I shall sow and reap. Dead right.
