They Say Le Pen "Mopped the Floor" with Sarkozy

by Dymphna

THE SPEECH OF JEAN-MARIE LE PEN AT STRASBOURG, THURSDAY 10 JULY 2008

A video of Le Pen’s attack on Sarkozy at the European Parliament can be found here. Whether or not you understand French, I recommend watching this just for the times the camera pans to a dour Sarkozy, listening to Le Pen's fervent attack. Stay till the bitter end, when the camera fades to a still frame of an unhappy French President. Great image!

Perhaps some of our European readers can tell whether Le Pen is being laughed at or laughed with. There are certainly some amused faces, but the joke is not obvious to this American.

Here is a transcript in French of Le Pen’s speech.

The following English translation was made by a commenter at fdesouche.
