Perhaps hoping to captilize on a foreign moment akin to the controversy during Royal's Mideast trip, UDF candidate Francois Bayrou has criticized Socialist candidate Segolene Royal for her comments regarding human rights in China.
"I would have liked that she mention the question of the human right there. But she did it with so many periphrases and delicacies that no one is at all disturbed."
Unfortunately for Bayrou, the human rights violations of the Chinese today do not carry the same weight and controversy as Nazi analogies with Israel. For someone trying to rise above the two major political parties, he sure isn't acting like it.
