'Nikolas Sarkozy...... will be a truer friend to Britain'. I'll believe it when I see it! It's been a very long time indeed since Britain had a 'true' friend in the Elysee. All Presidents and Prime Ministers have to defend their country's interests but in France 'my country right or wrong' is the only principle that matters to them.

I wouldn't expect him to be a 'true friend' of Britain, any more than I'd expect a British PM to be a 'true friend' of France, but I do think Sarkozy's election is likely to be good news for France, for Britain and for the world. Certainly better news than Royal would have been.
