Sir: 'Elysee Palace occupied by a conservative prime minister . . .' (leading article, 21 June). Have I missed the coup d'etat, or has Edouard Balladur joined the ranks of 'les squatters'? How, I wonder, does President Mitterrand go about getting him out of the Elysee Palace and back where he belongs, in the Hotel Matignon?
Next thing we know, John Major will be occupying Buckingham Palace]
