Villepin: Tous pourris (ou presque)

One expects Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Mélenchon to attack the corruption of the political elite in toto. That is their stock in trade. It's less expected when it comes from Dominique de Villepin.

Thank you for the link! Villepin's stance is quite interesting. He has already published (since years) wonderful pages about "l'esprit de cour". It's not really about corruption (ie misexecution of a person's duties), it's about power being taken over by a small lot — the President, his neighbour the Ministre de l'Intérieur, perhaps, the Premier Ministre, and ... ??? — leaving all other Ministres useless, jaded, and after all, comfortable with the symbolic benefits of their functions.
