France now has a marvellous chance to prove that when you’ve got no money, the answer is to spend even more:
And the winner is… Â aÂ Â bland former civil servant:
FRANCOIS Hollande has been elected France’s first Socialist president in nearly two decades, dealing a humiliating defeat to incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy and shaking up European politics…
Mr Hollande has said he will move quickly to implement his traditionally Socialist tax-and-spend program, which calls for boosting taxes on the rich, increasing state spending and hiring some 60,000 teachers.
PARIS (AP) â€” Socialist Francois Hollande defeated conservative incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy on Sunday to become France’s next president, heralding a change in how Europe tackles its debt crisis and how France flexes its military and diplomatic muscle around the world.
Francois Hollande will be France’s first Socialist president in nearly two decades. Hollande is the guy Â who campaigned on Â “Niggas in Paris”, aÂ rap song targeting mainly African and Muslim voters. So here we go again: Socialist treachery will drag France further in the abyss and in a few years all they will have left to share is more misery.
The National Post tries to sellÂ Hollande as a 57-year-old “centre-left moderate”.Â he is no such thing.
