PS Disintegrating?

My headline may be a trifle sensationalist, but this strikes me as an interesting, and possibly significant, development: Eric Loiselet, the first secretary of the PS Federation of Haute-Marne has quit the party and joined Europe Ecologie for the regionals. He will head the EE list.

So the Greens, who were nipping at the heels of the PS in the European elections, are now starting to pick off midlevel officials of the party. The handwriting is on the wall.

I agree that this is interesting. I wonder if anyone else will follow; that will be the test. There is a lot of truth to his statement that it will not be possible to reform the PS from within, and there does not appear to be anyone similar to Mitterrand who can ride in from the outside and shake it up. Too bad.
