Sarkozy: 'Le Pen isn't incompatible with the French Republic'

Nicolas Sarkozy's full-on chase after Marine Le Pen's voters has gone too far for a lot of France's newspapers, as they accuse him of borrowing the rhetoric of the Second World War.


Libération accuses the president of breaking the ultimate taboo in French politics - the wall between the mainstream right and the National Front.

L'Humanité says he's borrowed the language of Marshal Pétain - and they're furious he's trying to hold a meeting on May Day.

Le Monde is looking at where Marine Le Pen goes from here - saying her aim is to destroy the UMP party and become the sole leader of the opposition on the right to a future President Hollande.
