Ségolène Royal was interviewed by the commission of inquiry set up after the Dieselgate, and who had already been invited two times, in vain. She finally agreed to come in the nick of time, came to Strasbourg by plane ministerial, and with almost an hour late (for an audition that stretched into two), which has much annoyed the meps. After exchange very lively, Ségolène Royal said he did not regret having made the trip.
Atmosphere tense and irony in the air
“I thought we had made me come to congratulate me, fortunately, I am coming to you explain things“, said the minister of the Environment at the end of his hearing before the european parliament.
The atmosphere was much more tense than the members of the commission of inquiry ISSUED on pollutant emissions, particularly diesel, had planned to spend the double of time counted, since they went with a voting session at noon.
“Visibly the French ministers were just as bad as us getting to Strasbourg“, ironisé a british labour euro mp. “I wouldn’t give you advice, but with the TGV, Paris is at 1: 50pm Strasbourg : we would be able to start on time and my colleagues would also have been able to ask their questions“, stressed German mep Jens Gieseke, rapporteur of the commission of inquiry.
France promotes the diesel engines in the european legislation ?
does she Want to protect Renault, cache-t-it information on the results of the Royal commission, is there a secret of State as well as for nuclear power ? Ségolène Royal has forcefully defended the actions “copies” led by France. Before concluding :
“They had a state of mind because of what France did, it is still implausible. France was the only country in Europe to have reacted to the scandal at Volkswagen, to have put in place a system of control that is unique in Europe, and even unique in the world, because I don’t see a lot of countries that control the pollution of their own constructors. It is for this reason that I am not left to charge : I have returned the situation, I thinke”.
And Ségolène Royal has proposed to the european industrialists, “rather than competition, of working together to produce a car european public at large, not expensive, less than 5000 euros, which works electrically : this is the challenge of the future.“
