With his popularity at rock bottom, zero growth and record unemployment, the French president finally speaks out on prime-time television to try to show his fellow countrymen that despite the rough weather, there is a captain who knows where he is heading. Also, what was supposed to be a mere parliamentary by-election ends up as a show of force for the far-right National Front.
On the set:
- Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI;
- Denis Demonpion, Senior Writer, Le Nouvel Observateur.
