Could Environment Minister Jean-Louis Borloo stand for the Presidential elections in 2012 in a bid to boost Sarkozy’s changes in the second round of the election? A complicated political plot such as this may be hatched in order to save Sarkozy’s chances of re-election: Le Figaro
 
Ségolène Royal is defending those whose houses are to be demolished in the aftermath of Storm Xynthia. The Government insists 1,500 houses in flood plains must be razed. Ségolène Royal does not agree (surprise, surprise): France Soir
