Based on your experience, how many invalidations would you predict ? It would be disgusting if the left's majority (already underwhelming for losing more close races than it won) were further shortened. Sad

It may be underwhelming and all... but let's not forget that the left's majority is - I think - bigger than it was in 1997 (and obviously way bigger than in 1988). And even a one seat majority is better than this:

BTW, for one I'm really hoping Devedjian survives. He's the only right-winger in the 92 who isn't a thug.

Well, Fromantin is a fairly good guy. There was an interesting article about him a few weeks ago in Le Monde, and he has the style of a moderate, pragmatic centre-rightist focused on governance rather than photo-ops and politicking.

You're right about Fromentin, as usual I spoke a bit to early. Wink Of course, my real reason for liking Devedjian is that Sarkozy hates him. Isn't that a sufficient reason ? Tongue

One of the new PS deputies - Olivier Ferrand (Bouches-du-Rhône 8th) - has died suddenly.

To make horrible things more horrible, his successor is a Guériniste stooge.

Bouches-du-Rhône-8 : Olivier FERRAND (PS)

Olivier Ferrand sadly died this morning of an anevrism, aged 42, after its jogging.

"its"? Just because he's dead doesn't make him a thing.

Oh well. I blame your sleep deprivation. (RIP.)

You should blame my poor English skills, instead.

I know. I was joking. (And while it would have gotten that meaning across, what I wrote in French sounded totally wrong and John-Tory-style. God, has my "active" French gotten rusty... Passive comprehension is still good enough to read newspapers though.)
