Sue Cameron of The Daily Telegraph asks if power is draining away from Westminster?

She consults Tony Travers of the LSE; former Tory chief of staff Michael Dobbs; the Labour MP Gisela Stuart who wanted to stand as Mayor in Birmingham; and the Tory MP on the public accounts committee, Richard Bacon.

How far is disaffection with politics driving voting in the French elections? A subject for the former foreign secretary, Sir Malcolm Rifkind and the French journalist Agnes Poirier.
