|A lot of commotion, so we think he has arrived.|
That evening on the news, we found out why the President of the Republic was in town. He didn't come for an important meeting concerning all the financial problems in the EU. He didn't come to solve any social issues of the day. He came (drum roll please!) to pull a poster off the wall in the Opera House! It was a poster demanding the return of the young Israeli solder who was held captive for 5 years and had just been released. France helped in the negotiations. So, the President of the Republic flew to Nice, blocked traffic for several hours, had every police from city to national level working, all to pull a poster off the wall for a photo op! Ah, politics!
