Carlos Ortiz de Zárate | La señorita Marple presenta datos que indican que el apoyo de los franceses a las políticas mas radicales del gobierno francés en las políticas para la resolución de las confrontaciones de los barrios periféricos de las grandes ciudades , que detectan algunas encuestas de opinión no corresponde al discurso de las mismas que han presentado tanto los medios de comunicación como las instituciones.
