Moi? J'ai la banane jusqu'aux oreilles

The Socialist mayor of Grenoble, hat in hand, goes begging to the powers-that-be in Palo Alto, California in an attempt to save the jobs of his constituents back home. Chiraq is now turning towards that legendary Zeropean Soft Power (©Emmanuel Todd - une autre hystérique, pleine aux as, qui a ses règles) to try and persuade a Wall Street quoted company, created in a garage by risk taking entrepreneurs (ie. not by candy ass bureaucrappers) and incorporated in a sovereign State (sovereignty is a distant memory for the French), to change its mind. Message to H-P shareholders: Stick it in and BREAK IT OFF.
