It's Sarko-Sego!

The first round of votes are being counted and Nicolas Sarkozy leads, with Segolene Royal in second place.

BBC World is doing a bad job of hiding their excitement that "socialism is not dead in France" just because Segolene didn't lose out to neo-Fascist Le Pen. But the fact that Segolene made it through to the second round will soon be nothing more than a historical footnote. 'Cos it's two weeks 'til President Sarko!

Actually, the real news is the score of the third man, Fran├žois Bayrou. 18% is unheard of for a third contender in a Presidential election n France. Especially with this historical participation level in the vote.
