I’m glad to say Rachida Dati is in the news again on the other side of the water. The Telegraph reports a claim that Nicolas Sarkozy suspects her of being the source of the recent rumours about his marriage; Le Monde merely says Sarkozy was miffed that she popped up after the recent regional elections to criticise his policies – having been invisible throughout the campaign. Anyway, she’s lost her chauffeured limousine, though she blames the interior minister Brice Hortefeux rather than the President of the Republic.
Life would be a lot more fun here if we had an ex-minister like Rachida. Is it worth a revolution?
