Nicolas Sarkozy fears he is so disliked by his country that he could be assassinated.
The French premier has become one of the most unpopular presidents in 50 years after he raised the retirement age from 60 to 62.
Strikes and protests have erupted across the country in a backlash against Sarkozy’s cost-saving plans.
The change has now been voted into law by MPs and Sarkozy has apparently told aides that he fears ‘someone may just cross the line and attack me’.
