    This sentence appears in an article about Philippe Villin, a prominent French banker, business adviser, etc, and is in a passage describing an episode when he is involved in a dispute with an eminent French politician. Any idea how one would translate "Paris lui baise les babouches"?

    Hi,

    The meaning is "every important people in Paris kisses his feet." He is very influential.
