the candidate Sarkozy wants to prove he is not playing in the same league as its competitors. This is what he says to length of speeches to crowds already archi-convinced. “Politics is not a review, it’s a competition. If you get into the competition when there is a Teddy Riner in front, you’re dead “ says Mayor Gérald Darmanin Tourcoing, recently agreed with the former head of state.
