Issued on: Modified:
We look at reaction in the German, Spanish and British press to the historic defeat for François Hollande's ruling Socialists in Sunday's municipal elections. One paper argues the humiliation should be the springboard for Tony Blair-style reforms in France. We look, too, at who could emerge in a new Hollande team. One tweeter reckons "Ségo", Hollande's former partner, could be about to return centre stage.
