Freudian slips

FRENCH PAPERS, TUESDAY, 28th SEPT. 2010: After former French Justice Minister Rachida Dati confused the words ‘fellatio’ and ‘inflation’, France Soir looks at similar slip ups in the French political world. Elsewhere, a new immigration law is to be discussed in parliament today. Libération’s editorial is largely critical of the proposed legislation. Also, two big football matches in the Champions League pit French sides Auxerre and Marseille against Real Madrid and Chelsea.
