Only in France

Guy Eyerman, syndicaliste CGT, was only recently one of the strikers at New-Fabris, where angry workers had rigged up gas bottles and threatened to blow up the plant if their demands were not met. Now he's on Ségolène Royal's ticket in Poitou-Charentes, which also features candidates from MoDem. So Ségo has made good on her promise to create a rainbow coalition spanning the spectrum "from Besancenot to Bayrou," as she put it at Harvard more than a year ago. Eyerman, interviewed on France2 tonight, seemed a little surprised to find himself in position éligible alongside centrists, but he's a pragmatist for the moment, and so is SR.
