Le soap opera continue

Valérie Trierweiler has left the Salpêtrière for the "presidential residence" La Lanterne near the park of Versailles. The monarchical presidency takes on a new dimension: an official residence for the discarded mistress, at a comfortable distance from the Elysée and the rue du Cirque.

Meanwhile, I think Sylvie Kauffmann gets her priorities about right:
Don’t blame the French for giving economic reforms priority over their politicians’ pathetic private travails.

We are back in Louis XIV time when he sent away the disgraced Madame de Montespan back to her castle!
