He’s His Own Mégane: Nicolas Sarkozy’s Riotous French Carbecues

by | 8th, May 2007

DEMOCRACY rules in France where the people vote for Nicolas Sarkozy and the losers don’t so much take to the battle bus as set it alight.

Hundreds of people were arrested in France overnight in clashes between police and protesters angry over conservative Nicolas Sarkozy’s victory in Sunday’s presidential election, police said.

Official figures released on Monday said demonstrators set fire to 730 cars and injured 78 policemen across France, with 592 people arrested in the violent protests against the tough-talking former interior minister.

Is this a lot? Not really. “Police say on an average just over 100 cars are set ablaze in France each night.”

Well, makes a change from sheep…
