Shiny Happy People
This was the moment the crowd had been waiting for - Nicolas Sarkozy mounting the stage at Place de la Concorde, surrounded by his family, associates and the numerous musicians and singers (almost entirely of Arabic/African origin) to the welcome of thunderous cheering.
It was his moment to savour, and for the first time in many months he seemed to 'let his hair down' and, apart from his short speech to the masses, simply soak up the adulation, clapping along to the singers who slightly embarrassingly came and sang at him to the smiles of the benevolent onlookers.
Now, at last, France can get on with things again. I won't be sorry to see the back of those endless television debates where the names of 'Ségo and Sarko, Sarko and 'Ségo' were practically all we heard for months on end.
