"Nero": The Sophisticated Side of France's PM Poet

"Those losers, we screwed them with gravel" (Ceux-là, on les a baisés avec du gravier !) was the sophisticated and nuanced reaction of France's most powerful poet after a victory over Chirac's adversaries…

The admirer of Napoleon whose France-embodying seagull is a spiritual and graceful creature, at home in the heavens, blending and merging with the air, also called elected members of parliament "assholes" (connards), adding "Thank goodness they have no power whatsoever!" (Ils ont un organe plus développé que les autres, c'est le trouillomètre. Heureusement qu'ils n'ont aucun pouvoir !)

Read Le Monde's positive (!) portrait of Prime Minister Dominique Galouzeau de Villepin and watch "Nero's" portfolio
