French Elections

Recommended Posts

France elects first Socialist President since late 80s.

Woot! ... reasons to be cheerful.

This is going to be very interesting. Lets hope he sets a good example to Cameron and Co by taxing the rich and banks to pay off France's deficit. Seems a popular choice with the people.

It will. I am full of hope. Great to see a politician in power who seems to have the people at heart. I'll be watching to see if the promises of the many new teachers come to fruition. Our new teachers can't get posts. One of my friends, who is a teacher in France, visited me recently and could not believe this. She said that qualifying teachers in France are more or less assured of a post. And it's set to improve. I am full of envy. Just hope Cameron and Co are taking note and our own Scottish Government.

Oh dear! Our French friends are in for a shock according to Mr Cameron:

"If you actually look at what President Hollande is suggesting in France, actually his programme for getting rid of his budget deficit is actually on a pathway with ours."
