THE SPORT SCAN – Guest of Bruce Toussaint’s set, David Belliard did not know the exact dates of the Olympics but justified himself by explaining that as an elected environmentalist, he had been an opponent of the project.
David Belliard was Bruce Toussaint’s guest on Tuesday on the BFMTV set. Deputy mayor of Paris, in charge of the transformation of public space, transport, mobility, the street code and roads, the elected official was asked about the dates of the Olympic Games in the capital ( July 24-August 11).
A trick question that surprised the guest, unable to answer with precision. “I can’t give them to you right away like that but yes, yes, we can see… In any case, I can tell you that it takes us a lot of time“, replied David Belliard who had obviously not reread all his files before entering the set.
“You don’t know the date of the Olympics? “, was then surprised Toussaint. “I don’t have them there, it’s the end of July, that’s it“Relaunched the elected official who tried to justify himself on this oversight by explaining that he was not a supporter of the first hour of the Olympic Games in France and Paris.
“You invited someone whose political party was the only one on the Paris council to vote against the Olympics for environmental reasons“, he detailed before adding: “You will allow me, in my role as political leader, not to be up to date with the opening of the Olympic Games. »
“All this is not very serious“, acknowledged the journalist before mentioning the intention of some Parisians to leave the city during the event. “ You see, I won’t run away, that’s why I don’t know the date Belliard concluded.
