The end of all presidential dreams

Nicolas Sarkozy's interrogation puts a definitive end to all his dreams of making a comeback, but it also shows what a sorry state France is in, the news magazine the Newsweek Polska writes: "His career is now certainly over. Dreams of a victory in the 2017 presidential elections belong to the past. Because a total of six investigations have been launched against the ex-president. ... That means that Sarkozy is no longer a politician, but a ticking time bomb. However his arrest concerns more than just 'Sarko'. It shows that France itself is in a terrible state. ... Because for the past 20 years it has barely introduced a single reform. And you can forget [President] Hollande altogether. There's no chance of his getting any better at leading the country. ... The way things stand, France doesn't have a single real politician."
