Hollande's honeys: New French President unveils his cabinet of beauties (but he might have to have a word about those high heels)
Dear me, this is 2012 isn't it?
Carla Bruni has only been out of the Elysee presidential Palace for a matter of days.
But already a new line-up of glamorous political beauties is threatening to make the French former first lady a distant memory.
I would kill myself if it were my job to write this shite. The story here, if there's one at all, is that Hollande has picked a cabinet that contains the same number of men and women. It's not exactly equal — all the big jobs went to the boys — but I'm certain the women were not chosen for their glamorous beauty.
But he might have been left feeling a little bit overshadowed as many of his new female political colleagues towered over him in high heels.
Apart from the ones who don't — which, in the Mail's photo, is all of them. Presumably it's not a problem that his male colleagues are
taller than him. Would he have been better filling his government with 11-year-olds, to make sure he looked big and important?
The appointment of nubile young ministers to the cabinet has traditionally been left to the Italians.
Not since Berlusconi’s showgirls has a more glamorous group of woman been seen in politics.
If that's not an insinuation that these women have slept their way to power, I don't know what is. The Mail is not even trying to take women in politics seriously. We don't find out anything about their background or politics, only what they were wearing to the cabinet photoshoot (which we can see for ourselves) and:
Raven-haired Aurelie Filipetti, a novelist of Italian descent, has previously made headlines when she claimed she was groped by fellow Socialist Dominique Strauss-Kahn, stating she would ‘forever make sure’ she was never ‘alone in a room with him’
The association between political women and sex (and appearance) continues.
The new president's wife Valerie Trierweiler has also brought new glamour to the French political summit.
The Mail was mocking them for not being married the other day. Get it right, for God's sake.
Having worked with a few French women I have only one word - nightmare...

Rusty is yet to obtain the post of cabinet minister.
A couple of hotties in there, but not that much to shout about. Like the 'up the dress' leg shot.....she's tasty!... I've seen much fitter girls in Wolverhampton though.

Might of packed his cabinet with females but only three of them would get it and I'm not even that fussy.

Oh fuck off.
Good lord, France is going to be governed by a bunch of champagne socialist lefty tax and spend loons from the Harriet Harman club. Good luck France, you've hastened your downfall and no doubt the UK is going to get all the blame for it.

What's the betting that, if the Harriet Harman club had turned up in jeans, Bobbo would have criticised them for not doing themselves up?
