This Wednesday, the Keeper of the Seals was invited on the set of BFMTV. The minister was wrong in evoking the legal bodies present in Lot-et-Garonne. Éric Dupont-Moretti placed Agen in the Lot, which did not fail to make Jean-Jacques Bourdin smile.
This is a blunder that may well offend Lotois and Lot-et-Garonnais. Asked this Wednesday morning from 8:30 am to 9 am on BFMTV, Eric Dupont-Moretti, the Minister of Justice and Minister of Justice did not shine for his mastery of French geography.
While the journalist Jean-Jacques Bourdin asks him about the local courts of justice, on the occasion of the opening of the trial of the attacks of November 13 this Wednesday, the minister replied: “We can multiply the examples, in the Lot, head of the jurisdiction of Agen, we have a fairground hearing in Villeneuve-sur-Lot, formidable, justice is at the heart of the city, it is our social pact “. Jean-Jacques Bourdin cuts it off: “Lot-et-Garonne, but it does not matter”. Embarrassed smile from Eric Dupont-Moretti. And the interview continues.
On Twitter the sequence did not go unnoticed. Both in the Lotois and Lot-et-Garonnais ranks.
Si si Mr Dupont Moretti
I am proud of my lot !!
And the lot and Garonne has nothing to do with the 46 !! ??#bourdindirect

Is it a geography class or a political interview?
Bourdin’s pathetic softness and government complacency
