L'Escroc prononce ses adieus

Soon to be ex-President Chirac of France spoke in his final televised broadcast to the French people as President this evening, urging them to "always stand united".

His presidential immunity will expire one month from tomorrow, the date he stands down formally as President, and he faces the prospect of potential questionning by "a judge investigating an illegal party-funding scheme dating back to his 18 years as mayor of Paris". Interesting times ahead for him - and for us.
