Aranud Montebourg, of course, the irrepressible Arnaud. Apparently he wants to "uberize" politics. By that I suppose he means that he wants to "disrupt" things, to use a fashionable word, or to turn things upside down (rather than stand them on their head, as Marx used to say). I doubt that he has in mind distributing an app for your phone that you can use to call up any policy mix you want 24/7.
It sounds hip and modern, perhaps, but it doesn't mean anything, which makes it a perfect Montebourgian vehicle, I guess. But with Hollande's chance of even being a candidate, let alone being re-elected, sinking like a stone, Arnaud's candidacy has to be taken seriously. Who will he have against him? Valls? Aubry? Macron? Hamon? Royal? At this point I can imagine just about anyone who is left in the PS getting into the race: Moscovici, Rebsamen, Cambadélis ... They've got to scrape the bottom of the barrel, because that's where they find themselves. Nicolas Hulot, anyone? Thomas Piketty? Mélenchon? Poutou? Besancenot? It's going to be a free-for-all on the left, and Arnaud's just the first out of the box. Let's hope it doesn't turn out to be Pandora's box.
