With polls ahead of Thursday’s mayoral election putting George Galloway on no more than 1%, we could be witnessing the welcome political demise of a malignant racist.19:43 02.05.16 | 0 comments
Disclaimer: I have no connection to this affair. 1) Agrégé de philosophie (degree = agrégation de philosophie, actually a "concours", after 4 or 5 university years) IS NOT docteur de philosophie (degree = Phd in philosophy). These are two distinct titles in France. 2) D'alsace is actually spelled Dalsace. 3) A simple look at the sources will show that the core of the argument in the French debate was indeed religious but is poorly summarized in this article. --- Comment: Commenting on a public figure's fall is always easy and throwing in a few undocumented claims about the "French political scene growing toxic" does not cost much (please tell me, is there ONE political scene in ANY country which is not "toxic"...). Being more precise and documented would not hurt, especially for an author who claims to be a university professor. In many respected newspapers, this piece, even written by a journalist, would not pass a first reading.
