Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It was about Sarkozy imitating Blair - their philosophy is "whatever works". The optimistic view is that they are pragmatists; the more realistic one is that they are opportunists with no core beliefs who are just following the mood of the day, with no driving line.

Only poodlehood constrains that to some extent.
