When France's president Francois Hollande swept to power on May 2012 on a wave of discontent, he could hardly have imagined that a year later he would be the most unpopular president in modern French history. The broom refers to Melenchon's call for May 5 protest as a 'sweeping out'. AFP PHOTO / PIERRE ANDRIEU (Photo credit should read PIERRE ANDRIEU/AFP/Getty Images)
