Pas étonnant depuis que son ami de 30 ans Chirac est à la retraite, Flosse se sent un peu seul :), d'autant que ses relations avec Sarko et Estrosi (secrétaire d'Etat à l'outre-mer) sont loins d'être au beau fixe. D'ici qu'il devienne fervent défenseur de l'indépendance, cela ne m'étonnerais qu'à moitier

rough english translation of comment above:

"Not astonishing since Chirac, his friend for the last 30 years, retired. Flosse is a little sniffy : ) the more so as relations with Sarko (President) and Estrosi (Overseas Secretary of State) are far from beautifully appointed. From here, he becomes an enthusiastic defender of independence; even that would astonish me only slightly."
