Hello,

Could you help me to translate this sentence into french :

"But the French Prime Minister Francois Fillon put it down to the usual tooing-and-froing of politics"

Thanks

    That seems to me like the wrong way to write this phrase. For certain the "too..." part won't have two 'o's, so it should be either "to-ing and fro-ing" or "toing and froing", though I personally very much prefer the former (i.e. the first option).

    The phrase derives from "to and from", as in "come and go", so viera's suggestion sounds like a good possibility.
