Johnny Hallyday statue removed from Normandy town due to embarrassment

FRENCH PAPERS, THURSDAY, 2nd SEPTEMBER 2010: The townsfolk of Verneuil-sur-Avre in Normandy have had enough! A giant wooden statue of Johnny Hallyday has been removed from the church square and sold to a fan of the French rocker who proclaimed, “This is an emotional moment for me. I’m proud that the statue is staying in France.” Also, speculation on Sarkozy’s cabinet reshuffle and analysis of the Mideast peace talks and the Iraq war.

Articles in today’s French press review:
 
France Soir: The paper tells who it favours for various key government posts, this as Sarkozy prepares a cabinet reshuffle
 
Le Parisien: “Whose head will Sarkozy spare?”
 
Libération: “Fillon’s revenge”
 
Le Figaro: The right-leaning broadsheet’s editorial is somewhat pessimistic about Mideast peace talks in Washingon
 
Le Monde: The evening broadsheet publishes an opinion peace on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by the Zaid Laïdi, Director of Research at Sciences Po Paris. He says that the strategic gains in both countries have been “insignificant” for the US and that the two big winners of the Iraq war were Turkey and Iran, not the Americans.
