In France rooting away is almost mandatory for Politicians, at least it is no embarrassment.
Here in provincial NZ many of the citizens have a more moral view on such infidelities, particularly in the modus operandi.
Laughable Len brown made a few alterations to the script that Hollande and his predecessors among rooting French leaders followed.
Len vicariously carried out his fantasies on council premises, in working time, using council resources, in total defiance of the rules of employment for other council officials and included some suspected beneficial acts of reward for the object of his lust.
Hollande, the latest in a long line of French leaders otoh, met his "actress" in a Flat belonging to an actress friend of the paramour, after hours.
Len used Hotels that possibly came within the perks for his job.
Hollande admittedly employed a 'chauffeur,' Len used the Limmo complete with driver to get the few meters from office to boudoir and also used the Limmo to send Bevan away home. More importantly m Hollande travelled on a freakin "scooter".
On the evidence known Len made moves to advance his Giesha Girl, whereas good old Francois appears to be just a user, whether that is a plus for Len I am not sure.
About the only commonality existing for the two rooting socialists is in their economic management skills and they are not flash.
Scooter Rooter has overwhelming support, The First Lady not so much, The Actress, well nobody cares, just much apparent jealousy and/or envy.
Poor old Len has support that can be counted on two hands, Shan Inglis has sympathy, and Bevan Chuang is dogtucker
