Delphine Batho Fired

François Hollande abruptly fired his minister for ecology, Delphine Batho, after she called the budget, which cut her ministry's credits sharply, a "bad" decision. The Greens are meeting in Cécile Duflot's office to decide whether to remain in the government. Batho will be replaced by Philippe Martin.

Hollande and Ayrault only seem to generate the utmost contempt among their fellow party members (Aubry) and even subordinates (Cahuzac, Fabius, Batho). If their own team thinks so little of them, what hopes do they have going forward?
