France's ex-president Sarkozy to appeal after sentenced to prison for corruption

Yes, but even assuming he doesn’t win the appeal, he can serve his sentence at home. That’s no different to the rest of us who are sheltering from Covid apart from us not having an ankle tag :joy:

Snap… that’s just what I said to OH when I spotted this news item earlier today… :face_with_hand_over_mouth: :face_with_hand_over_mouth: :roll_eyes:

Well, it was an odd regime wasn’t it. Both President and his PM ending up in court on corruption charges.

Had this been in the UK he’d have a peerage by now.


He’d be in the tower at Her Majesty’s pleasure for attempted coup d’etat :grin:

Johnson seems to have got away with it so far without anyone shouting “orf with his head” (except me, I loath the man more with each passing day).
