Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, there wouldn't be "powerless adventures" because in the french constitution the government decides almost everything.

What gives our politics their flavour of monarchy is just the fact that the governement is choosen by the prez' and that we are used to it. It's not implemented in the text and we had various episodes when this was true (the last being probably between 2005 and 2007 when chirac was physically unable to preside).
