Are we sure that this isn’t a new form of the guillotine?
Fascinating what is happening in France at the moment. The press can hardly keep up with Sarkozy. All of these different ways of interpretting what is and isn’t appropriate under Laïcité also rather remind of quite arcane but very animated theological discussions. “It’s very important to defend laïcité – but laïcité as I define it.”
In the end the only real issue seems to be that Sarko gets the front page picture again and that are more lead items about him than the media can cope with. So thanks for not going with that but giving us some analysis of content. Much appreciated.
