Sarkozy's vision for Europe steals Hollande's European elections thunder

French papers this Thursday pick up on an interview former president Nicolas Sarkozy has given to the right-wing weekly Le Point. Sarkozy outlines his vision for the EU saying "absence of leadership is a danger for Europe". That steals the thunder from current president François Hollande, who has hung back during the current European election campaign. Also in this edition, an outrageous statement from Jean-Marie Le Pen and a 90th birthday. French crooner Charles Aznavour is still performing.
