Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Note though that current French commissioner Jacques Barrot has totally sold out to the neolibs on transportation and macroeconomic policies.
Given that Barrot is a member of the UMP, I don't know why you say "though". It just makes the difference between the UMP and the UDF all the more stark.

Bayrou did say that France had not been playing its proper rôle in Europe "for decades", maybe because they had stopped believing in it or something.
