So there\’s the new President\’s old bird, Segolene Royal. Then there\’s the new President\’s new bird, Valerie Trierweiler.
Amusingly, it\’s the new bird who is jealous of the old one.
In what has been dubbed \”the war of the roses\”, a single explosive tweet from Miss Trierweiler supporting Miss Royal\’s rival sent shock waves through the Socialist party\’s parliamentary election campaign. Some warned that the bombshell could cost Mr Hollande\’s party crucial seats on Sunday.
A commentator close to Miss Trierweiler, 47, said she had acted out of \”blind jealousy\” against Miss Royal, the 58-year-old mother of Mr Hollande\’s four children, creating a private and political \”psychodrama\” at the pinnacle of state.
Now all we need is for Sarkozy to shack up with Martine and we\’ve got the beginnings of a classic farce, eh?
