Carla Bruni not joined at the hip with Sarkozy's political ideology    2008-06-23 06:53:26    

London, June 23 : French first Lady Carla Bruni has admitted that she does not share all political opinions of her husband President Nicolas Sarkozy, insisting that she is 'instinctively Left-wing' and has a problem with 'conservatives.'
French first Lady Carla Bruni has admitted that she does not share all political opinions of her husband President Nicolas Sarkozy, insisting that she is 'instinctively Left-wing' and has a problem with 'conservatives.'

In an interview with daily newspaper Liberation, the 40-year-old confessed that she is not very politically engaged and her 'gut reactions are on the left.'

"My instinctive reflexes are Left wing ... I am not joined at the hip with (my husband's) politics. I get the impression that people who are completely one side or another only think with one part of their brain," the Telegraph quoted her, as stating in the newspaper.

However, Bruni said despite her leftist tendencies and the couple's political differences, she would vote for her husband.

"If he ever stood for election again, I would still vote for him," she said.

Bruni revealed that she had enlisted the help of an advisor to help her avoid shocking 'conservative people,' who came from 'a world that is completely alien to me.'

"(They) were deeply shocked by the arrival on the scene of a girl who is not French, not married, free to have been what she was, with a child," she said.

"But my husband doesn't correspond to the idea I had of conservatives. He is not conservative at all. Nor does correspond to a large chunk of those people who make up his party," she added.

The Italian supermodel turned singer also expressed relief that her husband had toned down his 'bling-bling' love of chunky watches and Ray-Ban sunglasses in favour of her 'more austere tastes.'

"I have quite austere taste, and he is more sober now. This is important for someone in his position," she said.

She added that she wanted to follow the first lady tradition of doing charitable work, and ruled out giving pop concerts while her husband is still in power. (ANI)
