France dodged the bullet in Sunday's second round of regional elections, but the threat from the extreme right remains a dark cloud over election post-mortems.

France's presidential elections are only two weeks away. President Sarkozy, who was trailing Socialist challenger Francois Hollande just weeks ago, is now neck-and-neck with his leading rival. One suspects Sarkozy has either made a pact with the devil or should head straight to Monaco's casino.
