Interesting run-off likely in French election

There always seems to be a clearish result from the French elections, a few hours after polls close. It seems Sargozy got 30%, Royal 25.2%, Centrist Bayrou 18.3% and Le Pen 11.5%. There was a record turnout.

This makes the second round fascinating. If Royal gets a good chunk of Bayrou's vote she could be in with a shout. The idea of Sarkozy in power is fairly nauseating. Did you see him on a horse in yesterday's Guardian? Pass the sickbag, Alice.

  1. The idea of Royal is scary. She'll destroy the French economy if she gets her way. That will seriously affect the EU and Britain.

    Sarkozy is the closest to a liberal, although he's not very close...
