A Pro-Reform Prof


Coup de foudre?

Ségolène Royal called her former rival un m'as-tu vu. She didn't know the half of it. It's all in Jacques Séguéla's book, more vulgar than life. For my taste, anyway. But you won't read it in the French press. (Correction: Actually, you will.)

I don't think the phrase coup de foudre really applies to what Charles Bremner describes as a "rather cheesy chat-up." More like a tonnerre de breast (with apologies to Capt. Haddock for stealing his thunder).
