doesn't like the rich' ...

 ... and said " he loathes financiers ", this from the man that would lead Europe's 2nd largest economy that is spending 54 cents in each Euro created by the businesses of France.

This French political messiah is reminiscent of our Denis Healey, Labour Chancellor of the Exchequer during the 1970's, who once said "tax the rich until the pips squeak", some might remember this socialist who heralded the Winter of Discontent into Britain which came to a virtual standstill by endless public sector strikes.

So with 54% public spending what does he promise, more public servants, higher wages, retire two years earlier;  all to be paid by businesses and the rich who will have their "French pips" squeezed, unless of course they hop on the Eurostar Express to London which I am sure will open its business as usual arms in a generous welcome .........

The people of France could be served better, but not by an administration that will bite the hands that feed its citizens, and the questions uppermost in my mind ........


............. who will lend Francois Hollande the money at affordable rates ?

............. how can Francois Hollande work with Madame Guillotine  Merkel ?

Will the Chancellor of Germany set aside the German economic ethics on the pyre of the Euro I wonder, what is more important to Merkel, Germany or France or the Euro ?

Has France become unbalanced, did Nicolas Sarkozy tip the citizens of France into an abyss of despair ?

Interesting days ahead, how long before Hollande discovers a note from the outgoing president ....

Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité ...
... the cupboard is bare !
