Report Card

Remember the grades that ministers were supposed to receive? They were all being watched by Eric Besson and the consulting firm Mars & Co. The first report card has now leaked out. Only 9 ministers have been evaluated so far. Top grades go to Dati, Morin, and Bachelot, and Barnier. Passing grades to the two Xaviers, Darcos and Bertrand. "Could do better" to Pécresse, Alliot-Marie, and Albanel. But the laggards are exonerated by the grader's comment: "Difficulties due essentially to conservatism in their area."

The prime minister characterizes the reports of a report card as des supputations.
