Sarkozy in Scooter Scandal


I am not sure I understand this story, but then the French have always been a closed book as far as I am concerned. Seemingly the police used DNA tests to nail the stealers of Nicolas Sarkozy's son's scooter. This is regarded as excessive since 7,000 scooters a year are stolen in France - amazing, I never knew that - and DNA tests in every case would be seen as profligate. As he is Interior Minister, it looks as though Le Grand Sark has been getting preferential treatment. At least I think that's what's going on. In a world in which Chuck Norris can be a Fox News anchor, it's difficult to be sure of anything. I can only resort to drawing your attention once again to my favourite picture in the entire world.

  1. And now this: Berlusconi has apologised to his wife for flirting in public with other women. He says, 'Forgive me, I beg you. And take this public show of my private pride giving in to your fury as an act of love. One of many.' The continent, it's a whole other place.

  2. What is 'private pride'? I've never heard of it. Am I missing out on something?

  3. Next we'll hear that Sarkozy has a lush apartment on the Seine paid for by the tax dollars of the humble citoyens of France. I lived in France for a year -- the place is *all about* double standards. (And how soon you can get 'em for yourself!) On the other hand, is anywhere *not* about that? Nowhere I can think of where capitalism is the prevailing economic system!

  4. I'd say Chuck Norris as a news anchor sums up the mainstream media quite beautifully. Although I heard something even funnier the other day, something aling the lines of Arnold Schwarzenegger being Governor of Calfornia. Some anti-American shit-stirring obviously.
