I’m a little scared that something really awful is going to happen this election. After the deadly bombs that killed 33 people in Algeria, Sarkozy warned us today that the terrorist threat is ‘real.’ What happened in London, Spain and New York could happen here, despite France’s opposition of the Iraq war, he said in an interview with Europe 1 radio.
Will Al-Qaeda try to leave its ugly fingerprints on this election, traumatising an already slightly paranoid country? It’s a frightfully chilling thought. Not just for the people who could be hurt or killed. But also because of which candidates would benefit. And what this would mean for democracy.
