While the citizens of Great Britain are allowing their Prime Minister and government to impose draconian cuts to health, housing, transport and social justice with barely a murmur, to rectify problems caused by excesses of financial markets, across the Channel the French are revolting. How come the normal person has to pay so dearly for the faults of big business and capitalism?
French President Zarkozy has stared them down and appears to be victorious but who will be for the chop come next election?
Has France ever had an honest and non corrupt President? I go back as far as de Gaulle and I can't recall one. Has France ever had a tall President? (I shouldn't go the cheap shot, should I)
