Waiting for Sarko

We live a block away from the Maison de la Mutualité, where a group of affluent-looking and sparklingly-white youth are gathering, many clutching French flags. Despite it’s history as a hang-out for the Left, it looks like the ruling (for now) UMP have taken it over to wait for what everyone is assuming will be a concessionary speech by Sarkozy.

Outside the Maison de la Mutualité, 18h45 May 6.

Meanwhile, traffic at the Swiss border is unusually active today in anticipation of a return to Socialist rule.
