Eric Cantona: Ministry Material
Eric Cantona, who has added the offices of poet and thespian to his CV since folding up his shorts, has reportedly taken steps to acquire the 500 mayoral signatures he needs to stand for France’s presidential vote this year.
However, French newspaper Liberation has subsequently stated that Eric’s intention is not to make it as far as the Elysee Palace (the official residence of the Prez), but to draw attention to poor quality housing in the country. Figures indicate that some 3.5million people in France live in inadequate conditions.
It would be churlish to criticise the worthiness of his cause, but if this gig doesn’t work out, there’s always a space in our Ministry of Mmm (Greying But Still Grabbable Division) for Eric if he so desires.
Sorry – we just had to put it out there.
