A correspondent emails to say that a Swiss website has called the French election for Sarkozy, 54.4% in favour of Sarkozy, against 45.5% for Segolene Royal.
UPDATE: the result is actually 53-47. I've said before that I am not a fan of Sarkozy. He looks to me to be slightly unbalanced and a bit of a bastard. I suppose I should console myself by the fact that as a man of the Right he is at least OUR bastard.
