President Francois Hollande and his Socialist government have suffered a crushing defeat in local elections. The government has lost control of around 150 large towns, mostly to the right. And the far-right National Front will be in charge of at least two large cities. Prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, who has led the French cabinet since the left came to power in 2012, has already resigned. President Hollande now faces a struggle to re-establish his political credibility. The London Independent’s John Lichfield joined Sean from Paris.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0401/605897-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-1-april-2014/?clipid=1522722
