What Has Been Going On Behind the Façades of the Ministries
In Le Monde, Raphaëlle Bacqué, Rémi Barroux, Béatrice Gurrey, Christophe Jakubyszyn, and Philippe Ridet have authored an in-depth article on the road to the CPE crisis and the thoughts and ((not-so) secret) plans of all the actors involved. Béatrice Gurrey takes this further, analyzing Chirac and Villepin's (not-so) secret pact of May 29, while Bacqué answers questions regarding the strikes from the newspaper's readers. Regarding French fears, meanwhile, John Tierney puts forward a solution for "rescu[ing] France from its self-proclaimed malaise": hire Donald Trump.
