Eleven French towns are now controlled by the Front National and we can only hope typical post-election disillusionment sets in early. The bad news is Mayors in France serve six year terms. Thankful today I do not live in Beaucaire, Béziers, Cogolin, Fréjus, Hayange, Hénin-Beaumont, Le Luc, Le Pontet, Mantes-la-Ville, Marseille (7e secteur), Villers-Cotterêts, Bollène, Camaret-sur-Aigues or Orange.
