Julie Gayet

Dodgy little rooting socialist ratbag set to give the missus the arse-card?

Bit of a dilemma for the ratbag socialist French president, he moved his girlfriend into the Elysee Palace when he was elected, she has a staff of 5 for god knows what (when was the last time a socialist was prudent with taxpayers cash), she has use of a private jet plus all the extra goodies.

So logically as she is just his girlfriend or the first girlfriend as she is dubbed now he is shagging someone else does one move out and the other one in ?

The pollsters are saying it won’t affect his numbers?.well of course not he is the most unpopular president of all time.

France’s First Lady Valerie Trierweiler was yesterday facing the prospect of becoming the first in history to be kicked out of the Elysee Palace.

It follows humiliating revelations that her partner, President Francois Hollande, has ?fallen in love? with a woman almost 20 years his junior.

Mr Hollande?s relationship with actress Julie Gayet, 41, was exposed by a series of pictures in French Closer magazine which show him travelling to see her on a moped.

But beyond a new romance, opponents claim the scandal exposes publicly funded deceit, security lapses, and the huge cost of a first lady who no longer has any legitimacy.

Closer’s Friday edition carried a seven-page report on the alleged infidelity, in which a man it insists is the president arrives on a chauffeur-driven scooter to spend nights in the flat.

Miss Gayet arrives separately. The pair are brought croissants by a man identified as his bodyguard the following morning.

“It’s a real passion that has … turned their lives upside down and makes them take insane risks,” the magazine wrote.

The report in Closer, which angered many in Britain for publishing topless pictures the Duchess of Cambridge in 2012, sparked a furious rebuke from the president, who, however, failed to deny the liaison.

A source close to the president said he “greatly deplores the invasion of his privacy, to which he has a right as any other citizen does.” The president was “studying what action, including legal action, to take”. ? Read more »
