France's Prime Minister Francois Fillon
Who won? As with all face to face, we seek a winner in the Thursday evening which pitted François Fillon Jean-Francois Cope in the program "Words and deeds" on France 2. Two temperaments are clearly illustrated. That of François Fillon Prime Minister always a little on the form very quietly developing his argument and that of Jean-Francois Cope more offensive. The first saddled with the nickname "Holland right" by its competitor (although the latter will defend later "personalize"), however, the tone hardens a little. "I'm not a centrist," he said to the three journalists face in the first part of the show. He also proposed to amend the Constitution on foreign access to social benefits and announced that the right would on gay marriage in case of alternation. A slight rightward in his speech in front of his opponent certified "uninhibited right." A Jean-Francois Cope, which implied that the former Prime Minister thinned his word too often in the media, he replied that he fled indirectly "unnecessary emissions." François Fillon has also responded to regular attacks on its comfortable riding Paris recalling that Nicolas Sarkozy was elected ... in Neuilly. Inevitably defends his record, especially in economic matters while distancing himself on some points with Nicolas Sarkozy. He has acknowledged that the former Head of State asked the boss PSA "push his social".
