Why Independence for Quebec but not Guadeloupe?

Convention pour une Nouvelle Guadeloupe notes (Fr) that French Socialist presidential candidate Segolene Royal has endorsed the Quebecois party's principle of Quebecois independence. The blog continues: “We notice once more the double standard of socialist conservatives who share the goal of Quebecois Independence but reject the same outcome for Guadeloupe.” The blog goes on to urge the UN to demand that all its members (and France in this case) respect the international right to decolonization.
