Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think Sarko considerably extended and reinforced the Chirac monolithic party: pulling in the centre (minus Bayrou) and above all attracting a sizeable proportion of Front National voters. It's totally "unnatural" and requires nonstop media management to keep alive. And Sarko lost the media plot sometime earlier this year. He's trying to get it back.
