One Man's Meat...
The title should read 'One Man's Poison Is Another Man's Meat' if the newspapers are to be believed.
While the erstwhile head (although he hasn't officially resigned as yet) of the IMF languishes in a NewYork prison, Mr Sarkozy snr the father of the current president of France, announces his daughter-in-law is pregnant. Quelle surprise. Commentators are suggesting the news could spark the president's resurrection after his poor showing in the polls in recent months.
In honour of Strauss-Kahn's fall from grace a pack of would-be successors wasted little time yesterday maneuvering for his job. The Spiegel has taken the trouble to run a photo gallery of possibly contenders for the IMF leadership. Number four seems familiar.
One point I do find remarkable is that France has no extradition treaty with the US. How did they manage that?
