Socialism in France! Bail-out rejection in Greece!
So, Hollande actually won.
And we have an anti-austerity, socialist tax and spend president in a major Euro power.
And Greek elections still inconclusive, but looks like whatever the result they will seek renegotiation of the bail-out conditions, inspired by Socialist victory in France.
Dark days for the Euro....
At least when Hollande raises all the business and high earner taxes in France, we should get lots of them relocating to Britain. And at least we're not in the Euro.
Merkel must be fuming. But a rift between France and Germany could see Britain's EU position strengthening.
Obviously I am looking for positives for us in a bad situation, I dont like to see radicals win elections and ultimately, what's bad for the Euro is bad for us.
If you're French, there are no positives.
Also I have decided Carla Bruni should be made the permanent first lady of France and anyone who becomes president automatically gets to **** her.
