Bush & Obama in "trial of the decade"
OK, hands up...I'm sure you spotted my cheap shot at getting your attention. Bush & Obama aren't actually involved at all.
It's Sarkozy and de Villepin who are today beginning the so called "trial of the decade". That shouldn't lessen public interest though.
It's a complicated affair but in a nutshell ex French prime minister Dominique de Villepin faces accusations of a smear campaign against current prime minister (and Obama favourite) Nicolas Sarkozy.
If found guilty he faces up to five years in prison and you can read about the accusations and murky background of the case here.
It's old money against new and it's going to get dirty. My eyes will be glued to the news each night for the next few weeks.
