Thanks to LGF, I see that the BBC's website report contains the following:

"But the BBC's Caroline Wyatt in Paris says that as a career diplomat never elected to public office, he of all candidates most typifies the French elite so roundly rejected by the French people on Sunday."

Ouch! Not only is that a perfectly valid observation, but consider the source. When even the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation gets snarky at you, you have a SERIOUS credibility problem.
