Emmanuel Macron’s halo can bring the London spirit to Paris: France’s capital could become a European hub for technology and enterprise.

The FT’s John Gapper writes: “A dozen years ago, Paris was widely favoured to host the 2012 Olympics, only to be defeated by London. This was partly due to energetic lobbying by Tony Blair, the UK’s former centre-left prime minister, and partly to the capital’s campaign to brand itself as a modern, cosmopolitan city. “London will inspire the champions of tomorrow,” was its video tagline.

I thought of this uplifting slogan as I watched another centrist technocratic leader celebrate in front of his flag-waving supporters on Sunday, having won the first round of France’s presidential election. Emmanuel Macron’s triumph, along with last year’s Brexit vote, has reversed the outcome: Paris is the victor and London the loser.” Read more at FT.com
