He looked like a heart attack waiting to happen.
Amuses me now that the PS are praising his work in Languedoc-Roussillon, having only recently expelled him from the party. Have to say I only think of him as Le Pen's twin, a committed racist.

Nobody I know round here is sorry to see him go. He was a bit bonkers. A liability. Although there's no denying he loved his region. Amazed at the way he's suddenly a "wonderful person" now he's dead - on the telly he used to get nothing but flak. It's a strange old world.

A legend in his own lunchtime around these parts :

http://the-languedoc-page.com/phpBB2/vi ... php?t=5334
http://the-languedoc-page.com/phpBB2/vi ... php?t=4484

Some of his quotes _

Frêche may be best remembered for :

* describing President Nicolas Sarkozy as a "pansy in platform shoes"

* greeting the election of Pope Benedict XVI with the words "I hope he does better than the other idiot [John Paul II]"

* proclaiming that a French football team containing "nine blacks out of 11" when "the norm would be three or four" made him feel "ashamed for this country"

* once remarking: "I've always been elected by a majority of plonkers. That's not about to change."

* declaring that he really should be standing for election in Toulouse, having as a student "screwed 40% of its women".

* declaring that local French politics were really not very hard: you simply increase taxes, build a few schools, "then you get two years of unpopularity, two years of calm, two favourable years with flowers and little birdies, and then you're re-elected. It's all most disconcertingly easy."

* saying "his nose doesn't look very catholic to me" when Laurent Fabius criticise him on the radio.

* saying that "20,000 out of the 30,000 books are useless and need to be destroyed", when asked to support the reopening of the American library in Montpellier.
