I gazed long and hard at the election posters outside a local school, but I can't make head nor tail of the parties any more.
There seem to be about four different parties that include the word "Republican" in their name, so I couldn't even be sure which party was Alain Juppé's.
I was puzzled by the presence of the gaullistes - surely that's Juppé's party?
And as for the party for the Spirit of the Resistance...
I am so confused that I am very glad that I don't have a vote because I'd be baffled.
