the late Francois, not his nephew Fred, who is currently Culture Minister.  As the presidential race here in France gathers momentum I thought it was worth reminding readers that the man who was correctly nicknamed "Dieu" knocked all the others, then and now, into a cocked hat.

M Mitterand was and remains, one of my all time political heroes (along with M Gorbachev and H Wilson).

His 1987 Presidential re-election campaign was, and remains totally textbook - Sego/Francois etc, look, learn, and WEEP. Oh - and Ed too!
