In 2021 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Jospin Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Meudon Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderjospin - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Lionel) and a fashion line called “Lionel Jospin Seduction”.
