Greece - the first thorn in Hollande's side

Has Greece already ruined François Hollande's chances of building a European policy based around growth? And is the right-wing UMP party going to fall apart in the upcoming parliamentary elections?

Le Figaro says Hollande's economic policies are suffering a serious reality check from the chaos in Greece - while even Libération recognises he's got his work cut out to create a workable growth policy.

As for the outgoing government, they've got parliamentary elections to worry about - where the UMP will fall apart if last Sunday's voting patterns are repeated, says Le Parisien - and also rumours in Libération that François Fillon and Jean-François Copé are set to tear each other apart for the leadership.
