I Think My Sarko's Gone Crazy

'Cause I'm hard like stone
Don't play me soft
That's what it is money grip
Don't trip
Or I'm a- bust that lip
--Danny Boy/H.o.P.
This is the Good Cop:
``Youth unemployment reaches almost 40 percent in some areas,'' de Villepin said. He added that the goal of the government will be to give unemployed youth living in France's ``sensitive urban areas'' a work contract, an internship or training in coming months.

De Villepin also said he will restore government subsidies to local associations scrapped by his predecessor and aims to triple scholarships and improve links between universities and students living in poor areas.
And this is the bad cop (google translation):
Violences: Sarkozy wants to expel the condemned foreigners

The Minister of Interior Department Nicolas Sarkozy asked the prefects to expel all the foreigners condemned within the framework of thirteen last nights urban violences, "including" the holders of a residence permit, it announced to the French National Assembly today.

"120 foreigners all, not in irregular situation, were condemned" to have taken part in the last nights of urban riots, indicated the Minister of Interior Department at the time of the meeting of the topical questions.

"I asked to the prefects that they be expelled without delay of our own territory, including those which have a residence permit", Nicolas Sarkozy specified.
Ho-Ohhhhhh! Bananas, son!
So say goodnight to the bad guy. Come on. Last time you're gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Make way for the bad guy.
