Ironically, the French president was on hand to speak about violence in schools. I wonder how that worked out for him? Notice that while Sarkozy is not exactly Mr. Popularity anymore, his wife – supermodel Carla Bruni – only gets phone numbers thrown at her.
The funny thing with Nicolas is that apparently,
BEAUVAIS, France – A schoolboy threw a plastic bottle at France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy on Tuesday during a visit to discuss violence in French schools, but failed to hit his target.
A bodyguard came between Sarkozy and the water bottle which was thrown as pupils crowded around the president, some of them seeking to shake his hand, at the Charles Fauqueux high school in Beauvais, north of Paris.
Sarkozy, whose popularity rating in France has slipped to record lows in recent months, expressed concern about absenteeism and violent incidents in schools, during talks with teachers and local officials.
The student was not punished for the attempted assault, but he was arrested for failing to recycle a plastic product. He was sentenced to life in prison.
