The battle of the populists
It's the row in Parliament that's on all France's front pages - yesterday the whole government walked out for the first time in a century, after a Socialist MP effectively accused the interior minister of Nazism.
Le Figaro defends Claude Guéant - saying he's just defending the traditional values of the Republic, which the left does not seem to understand.
Libération says he's got off with his offensive comment scot-free - while Le Parisien looks at the man who caused all the trouble by accusing him of Nazism.
Le Monde is looking at the working class voters that it's widely assumed this rhetoric is aimed at - saying they're being courted on both right and left with similar ideas.
And L'Humanité focuses on a massacre 50 years ago today - of Communist protesters against the war in Algeria, by Paris police.
