Last week, the flower of the Republicans took the direction of Haute-Marne, and more precisely of Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises, the village in which General de Gaulle is buried. In front of the massed cameras, they gathered on the grave of the great man, looking serious and inhabited by an incandescent Gaullism, then all these beautiful people took a well-deserved pose to offer us this beautiful family photo. Cheeeeese? Another time maybe.
The hour has come
That day, the candidates for the nomination of the Republicans for the presidential election were all punctual at the rendezvous, but the deputy of the Alpes-Maritimes Eric Ciotti was undoubtedly more so than the others. Because on his wrist shone a gleaming Rolex Datejust, Jubilee bracelet, in gold and steel. The occasion to recall that Charles de Gaulle wore, for years, a French watch, a Lip, the R27 model in pink gold equipped with an electric caliber and marketed from 1958 to 1960.
By car Michel
On the front line, Michel Barnier also shone brightly. Dressed in a spectacular car coat, waterproof coat originally intended for sporty driving in a convertible, the former chief Brexit negotiator for the European Union, often presented as the favorite of the Congress of the Republicans, could not have better signified his desire to accelerate further to leave competition far behind.
At his side, the so-called Philippe Juvin did not go unnoticed either, but for much less glorious reasons. Indeed, the totally rough buttoning of his jacket jumped out at us with muffled violence and total contempt for our modest writings: how many times must we remember that the last button of a jacket must never be closed?
In the great history of the red scarf, a new name is now needed. After Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Christophe Barbier, Pierre Arditi, Ségolène Royal or François Mitterrand (who, it is said, had stolen the idea from Aristide Bruant), Valérie Pécresse now wears the iconic accessory to keep warm or to be notice, or both at the same time. A wise choice? In any case, after the meditation will undoubtedly come the time to split up with the photo comrades.
