IN THE PAPERS

IN THE PAPERS

Latest update : 2010-05-04

Environment put on the back burner

Libération says that a new law set to implement promises made at a 2007 environment summit in France fall far short of original goals. The left-leaning paper says that Sarkozy has abandoned his green credentials in favour of traditional conservative issues. This and other stories in today’s French papers: TUESDAY, 4th MAY 2010

 

In order to give priority to live pictures from a press conference, today’s review of the French newspapers was shortened. Here are the articles we had time to look at:
 
Several papers look at the passing of the “Grenelle 2” environment law: Libération, Ouest France
 
The return of the ash cloud is on the front page of Le Figaro.
 
An angry Belgian avenges the error on French evening news where they mixed up Flanders and Wallonia. The Le Post news website reports that a Belgian man called Marco Van Hess has redrawn the map of France with Paris located in… Corsica! The story originally appeared in the Belgian paper Le Soir.
 
Finally, a look at a new vogue for young lovers: declaring your undying love on a lock which you attach to bridges or monuments such as the Pont des Arts in Paris: Le Figaro
