Leaks of Royal Platform

Some leaks have emerged regarding Segolene Royal's presidential platform ahead of her complete announcement tomorrow. Included in this will be increasing retirement payments by 5%, citizen juries for elected officials, military service for young delinquents, and an allowance for young people. This is likely to foreshadow a plan with plenty of specifics but not much overall vision. That is not necessarily a bad thing; different problems require different solutions, and government must always deal with dull details. The question will be whether this mixed bag will be enough to energize her party in the weeks to come.
