For Senator La Gontrie, Prefect Lallement must leave
Trained in the shadow of Alain Juppé, Edouard Philippe and Gilles Boyer are inseparable friends, companions of conquest and exercise of power at Matignon, as in writing essays or detective novels. But the second has just committed an assassination of sleep, a white night thriller, entitled The Russian Night (ed. JC Lattes). On a theme where we did not expect it, and for good reason: betrayal. Betrayal of the nation, betrayal of the friend, betrayal of oneself… A passionate and tormented thriller, where the disarray of a man caught in the nets of a foreign power, Russia, whose current events show more than never evil maneuvers. This was written before the invasion of Ukraine and rings damn true. Boyer knows the backstage of the political world for having lived there. And even now, within Horizons. So that sounds right. Here we are. We vibrate. We’re not going to spoil the ending for you, but hang in there.
Trade unions prefer darkness to light
The unions spread the word to let Olivier Dussopt, the new Minister of Labour, know that there was no question of redoing, as in 2017, a summer staging of a first round of negotiations under the eye of the cameras. “If meetings take place, it will only be behind closed doors. And certainly not with photos in the sun in the gardens of the ministry”, explains the boss of a central.
Revel en route to AP-HP
The former deputy secretary general of the presidency of the Republic then chief of staff of Jean Castex, Nicolas Revel, is approached for the succession of Martin Hirsch at the head of the Public Assistance-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP). Especially since the other presumed favorite, Aurélien Rousseau, has become Elisabeth Borne’s chief of staff.
Politics to taxis and hairdressers!
You have to subscribe to Jean-François Boilley’s Twitter feed. The Internet user has made a specialty of reviving a few strong forgotten thoughts, such as this one: “It’s a shame, all these people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxis or cutting their hair”. It is signed by the American humorist George Burns who lived to be a hundred years old (1896-1996). At a time when social networks were formed elsewhere than on the Internet.
Rousseau calls the men of the Nupes to order
Gender equality is still not a reality in politics. At the last LR strategic committee, only one woman took the podium with eight men. The France 2 debate program devoted to the Nupes presented four men: Ian Brossat, Julien Bayou, Olivier Faure, Adrien Quatennens. If the Republicans did not rise up, on the left, women protested, such as Sandrine Rousseau, who tweeted “How are you guys?”
Le Pen like McDo
Observation of the former adviser to François Hollande at the Elysée Palace Gaspard Gantzer, who still works in communication: the posters of the RN no longer mention the name, nor the first name, and even less the program of Marine Le Pen, just his face: “It’s become a brand, like McDonald’s. No need to specify that it’s fatty and sweet, we know…”
Bardella would see Attal well at Matignon
In a cross portrait titled “A duel between rising stars”, Opinion makes Gabriel Attal and Jordan Bardella “the two great hopes of their camp”. According to the daily, the two men fight each other, “but respect each other”. To the point that the elected RN wonders if “the Ministry of the Budget, which the former government spokesperson inherited, is not Matignon’s antechamber?” Not sure the question is doing him any favors.
