IN THE PAPERS

An overview of the stories making the French and international newspaper headlines. From Monday to Friday live at 7.20 am and 9.20 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2011-10-06

Is Hollande getting ahead of himself?

The French Socialists have had their last TV debate before the primary election - and the papers still aren't very impressed. They're also critical of plans to recapitalise struggling banks, and worried about Greece.

France Soir thinks François Hollande already sees himself as president - when voters haven't decided anything yet.

Le Parisien also thinks he concentrated too much on looking presidential in last night's debate, and not enough on policy.

Liberation is more concerned about the economy - they say the state cannot bail out French banks if the banks themselves are not willing to take losses.

And Le Figaro has been to Greece - where it finds increasing defiance against Papandreou's government.
