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.
