Europe: a new political divide

Will Europe be the deciding factor of the election in France? More Europe, less Europe, better Europe? The economic morass is forcing all the candidates for the Elysée to reassess their positions. In the meantime, the ruling conservative UMP party has once again decided to bring up the issue of immigration, through a series of declarations from their point-man on the issue, Interior Minister Claude Guéant.

On the set:

- Jean-Marc GONIN, Senior writer, Le Figaro Magazine

- Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI.
