and continue?

Tonight all is calm in Bellecour, but Jeremie and I just went to the kitchen to get a drink and happened to look out of the window. There were six minibuses of CRS and one unmarked police car, the men themselves were mostly just standing around doing nothing. At a certain moment, the boss gave the thumbs up and they all jumped into their buses and raced off with sirens blaring and lights flashing. My judgement is that they were lurking here for a reason: problems in Place des Terreaux methinks.

Perhaps it's all quite a clever plan by Sarkozy to boost employment? The more riots he can 'cause', the more police he'll need to quell them? Might just work - and it's certainly taking less than 100 days!

Yes maybe it is! Demonstrating immediately that he will put an end to all disorder in the country. I like your thinking…
