Austerity measures, what austerity measures?

In this edition: the government tiptoes around the word "austerity"; speculation swirls around whether popular socialist Dominique Strauss-Kahn will stand in the country's 2012 presidential elections; Sandrine Skinner, the French anti-death penalty campaigner, talks about a life in limbo - her husband Hank was given a reprieve just 35 minutes before his execution; and a touch of magic at Cannes, as fantastical film director Tim Burton takes the reins of this year's jury.
