Deja vu to do

All over again with the tax scandals in France;
Confidence in the socialist leader [and President, Francois Hollande] has plunged to an all-time low of 13%, according to a new poll taken even before the publication of a shocking memoir by Hollande's former partner Valérie Trierweiler in which she painted the president as cold, smug and contemptuous of the poor.
With France still reeling from the kiss-and-tell book which the press has described as a "killer blow" to his presidency, international trade minister Thomas Thévenoud was then forced to resign after just nine days in the role due to "problems with a tax declaration".
The Elysée first announced that he was stepping down for "personal reasons", before a government source told AFP that it was because he had "problems with his taxes".
In France, who doesn't?
