PRESIDENT HOLLANDE FALLS INTO VERY HOT WATER INDEED!



President Hollande has fallen into yet deeper trouble over his choice of scooter when he visits his actress friend, Julie Gayet. A Peugeot concessionaire has written to Arnaud Montebourg, minister in charge of promoting French products. The letter starts:-

 
“Minister, it is with very great pleasure that we learned that the President of the Republic assures his personal mobility on a 3-wheeled scooter. Our joy is however slightly lessened by the fact that the presidential scooter is a foreign brand”, begins the missive. Indeed, if the Italian brand, Piaggio and its emblematic model three-wheeled MP3 are the market leader, Peugeot is now a serious competitor. Their ‘Metropolis’, released in 2013, "well-received by consumers, is sensitive to the ”Made in France” label”. The scooter was also labelled “France original guaranteed” by the association Pro France.  

 
Noting a space in the President’s personal diary on Friday, from 11 to 5, the concessionaire offers him a test ride of the Peugeot machine. They also note that all is not lost. The President has a French helmet.
