Sarkozy's son awarded 'papa's boy' diploma

3 days ago

PARIS (AFP) A group of French activists waging a "Save the Rich!" campaign on Wednesday awarded President Nicolas Sarkozy's son with a "papa's boy" diploma for his actions in favour of the French well-to-do.

The tongue-in-cheek action took place at a Rotary Club luncheon in Paris where about 15 activists turned up uninvited to the blaring theme music from the US television show "Dallas" and presented Jean Sarkozy with the honour.

The 22-year-old Sarkozy, a regional councillor from the chic Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, laughed and accepted the diploma after overcoming initial surprise.

"Well done!", he said after the activists, dressed in white lab coats, proceeded to lecture Sarkozy on the rich-poor divide. "It was a pleasure talking with you," he quipped.

"Save the Rich!" was formed last month with the professed goal of helping wean France's wealthy class away from its "crass, vulgar and very sad lifestyle".

Earlier this month, the group targeted advertising magnate Jacques Seguela who sparked outrage in France when he claimed that anyone who doesn't own a Rolex by the age of 50 is a "failure".
