EDF, one imagines, is going to have its work cut out under le nouveau régime. Firstly, it must dissuade President Hollande from pursuing his phase-out policy for nuclear generation. Secondly, it will doubtless face a reversion to type whereby French governments of yore would 'solve' unemployment by ringing up EDF, France Telecom et al with instructions for them to hire an additional 24,000 people or so at a time. Good luck with all that.
And then there will be the vexed issue of EDF investing in 4 or more nukes in the UK. Let's not go here just yet - they are certainly in no hurry - but rather enjoy their latest UK advertising which as you may have noticed features, errr, well ... a small orange Richard. Which is promoting "electricity from low carbon generation". Presumably this has tested better in focus groups than mention of dodgy old nukes.
But there you go - who can afford to fly in the face of public opinion ? Eh, M. Sarkozy ?
