Jose Bove has declared he is standing for the French Presidency. He is a controversial figure compared by some people to Gandhi and rose to prominence by demolishing a half built McDonalds. “I will be a voice for the voiceless” he proclaimed and is standing on a ticket of standing up for the people, defending the environment and fighting globalisation. A poll gives him less than 3% of the vote. See articles in Wilkipedia and Znet. Is he the great Green hope or an irrelevancy?
