Proglio: The Ultimate Crony Capitalist

A very interesting profile of Henri Proglio, the head of EDF. It seems he was far closer to DSK than to Sarkozy, despite his liaison with Rachida Dati, and he isn't very close to François Hollande. Or at any rate that's what we're being asked to believe. Who knows what mysterious forces go into concocting a story like this. It's no doubt in Sarkozy's interest to distance himself from Proglio after the revelation of the plot to install Borloo at Veolia. Up to you to weigh les dits et les non-dits. In the end, though, you can't help feeling that this is an Augean stable that needs a thorough cleaning.
