mise en scène

Le dernier discours de Tony Blair aux congrès des Travaillistes vu par Simon Hoggart, chroniqueur parlementaire, dans le Guardian, extrait :

The organisers tried to whip up a frenzy which was almost, but not quite there. Before he arrived there was a "spontaneous" demonstration in which members of the audience held up hand-written posters: "We love you, yeah, yeah, yeah", "Too young to retire" and simply "Thank you". It was like waiting for a very cuddly version of Stalin. We saw a video in which ordinary folk and celebrities gave thanks for the existence of Blair. One old lady said: "I'm grateful for the £200 fuel allowance - it's better than a woolly hat." And they claim the British have a poverty of ambition!
