A very political Labour Day

It's May Day in France - and the president is coming under heavy fire for setting up a counter-rally to the traditional union march.


Le Monde says this will be a May Day like no other - caught between political rallies and scandals.

They criticise the president for trying to make political capital out of the day - while the Nouvel Observateur criticises the unions for moving away from their traditional neutrality.

Marine Le Pen is also holding a rally - in an attempt, says the Huffington Post, to stop her voters backing Sarkozy and to shore up support for June's parliamentary elections.
