The Sarkozys: The new face of nuclear power

While the media focus on President Sarkozy's stacked heels and Carla's likeness to Jackie O (such a lovely pillbox hat) the real reason for their visit emerges: to export France's nuclear energy capabilities to the UK, now that it's been decided by Gordon Brown (and Blair before him) that nuclear is the 21st Century answer to carbon.
