'Street warfare in Paris: Thatcher vs Sands'

Le Figaro says Hollande has not done enough to put out the fire of the Cahuzac tax evasion scandal. Some MPs - on left and right - are baulking at one measure: greater disclosure of financial assets. Le Parisien, meanwhile, looks at political lies past and present. And there's street warfare in Paris: one right-wing elected official wants a street named after Margaret Thatcher, a Communist counterpart says 'Non'. He wants one named after Irish Republican hunger striker Bobby Sands.
