Egypt: On French Elections

Egyptian-based blogger Sandmonkey gives us his take on the French elections here.


  • just out of curioisity, whats an egyptian-based blogger exactly? Shouldn’t it be “Egyptian blogger” or “egypt-based blogger”?

    just wondering…

  • Yes. You are correct Sandmonkey. I apologise for this typo. I am also ashamed to point out that out of all bloggers worldwide, Egyptians are the quickest to point out typos and mistakes but the slowest to ‘volunteer’ their time or efforts to a cause such as GVO. A real shame indeed!
