When Sarkozy is compared to Madoff…

In today’s French press review, we focus on the latest tensions between the Socialists and the Government.

The Socialist leader Martine Aubry compares President Sarkozy to Bernard Madoff, the biggest fraudster in US history.
 
The right-wing newspaper Le Figaro talks about Martine Aubry’s “mistake”. Its editorial says it was not a smart move. The ruling UMP party is now asking for an apology.
 
 
The left wing newspaper Libération wonders if Aubry’s “Madoff incident” was skilful or clumsy. The article says Aubry is perhaps trying to impose herself as Sarkozy’s main rival in the 2012  presidential elections.
 
In other news, the France-Africa summit starts today in Nice, South of France.
The Christian newspaper La Croix says the continent’s economy will be at the top of the agenda.
 
The communist newspaper L’Humanité is sceptical about the summit, suggesting a “Business diplomacy”.
 
 
Meanwhile, France Soir and La Tribune talk about the oil Spill in the gulf of Mexico.
 
And finally Aujourd’hui en France reports about the world’s no tobacco day.
