Britain's hereditocracy, Ctd

France is the home of nepotism, the very term is a throw-off from Napoleon Bonaparte who employed a host of family members. Now it turns out that a high profile Paris politician is doing the same. The Times of London recently reported that the leader of the Front National, Marine Le Pen, has employed a number of family members. It said:
"The commission approved subsidies to cover the cost of hiring Yann MarĂ©chal, Ms Le Pen’s sister, as her “campaign strategy director” on a salary of €3884 a month, and Louis Aliot, her partner, as “political adviser’ on €5381 a month. Although the practice of hiring family members is common in French politics, Ms Le Pen could be damaged by the disclosure that she has adopted them, too."
