Bonjour tt le monde!

Dans un texte issu du Monde évoquant le CPE, on parle de l'ancien premier ministre Dominique de Villepin, en le surnommant le "Héron Cendré".
y'a t'il un équivalent anglais?

Merci à tous

    I suppose it's referring to the colour of his hair, so I'd suggest : The White Heron, The Platinum Heron or something along those lines.

    "Héron Cendré"

    I guess that this is a rather unkind expression of the man's facial features.

    That is; "Heron(the bird) like and ashen."

    or maybe "hawkish"
