The admission on April 2 by former French Socialist Party (PS) government
budget minister Jerome Cahuzac that he did have a Swiss bank account for
tax evasion purposes has set off a storm of disgust and fury in France.

The already unloved government of prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault has been
shaken to its core. President Francois Hollande’s popularity has sunk
faster and lower than that of any president in the history of France’s
Fifth Republic.
