Se non è vero, è ben' trovato ...

Who is "G"? The burning question of the hour, for those who have been following the Yasmina Reza hoopla ... Her book on Sarkozy, she tells us, was inspired by her affair with another politician, whom she calls "G." Of course this left everyone wondering who G might be. Now, via Pierre Assouline, we learn that the Sunday Times of London has outed G, and he is (allegedly) none other than DSK. But the Times attributes its story to Le Point and doesn't seem to have it quite nailed down.

So let's get this straight: Sarko's amanuensis was having an affair with a man who might have been his opponent even as she was admitted into the most intimate councils of his campaign. No sooner is he elected than he contrives to push DSK into a candidacy for the IMF.

It's no wonder that the late Raymond Barre liked to keep his distance from what he called the microcosme. And the story does rather put the distance between Royal and at least one Socialist éléphant in a somewhat new light ...

Je vois que Assouline me copie ;-)

(ou plutôt l'inverse au vue de l'heure du post)
