Diplomacy: The Sarkozy Revolution
This week, the two main contenders for the presidential election are taking a short break from their non-stop crisscrossing of France. Socialist François Hollande visits London, while Nicolas Sarkozy heads to Brussels for yet another "crucial" EU summit.

- Gilles DELAFON, Journalist, Canal + TV and Author of "Le Règne du mépris" ("The reign of disdain").
