New French leader fires a broadside at Britain..
UK Daily Mail ^ | May 8, 2012 | Tim Shipman

New French president Francois Hollande launched an outspoken attack last night on Britain’s obsession with protecting the City of London from Brussels-inspired legislation. As David Cameron warned that the single currency is in ‘extreme trouble’, the socialist victor suggested that Britain is ‘indifferent to the fate of the euro area’ and ‘attentive only to the interests of the City’. This is despite the fact that billions of pounds of UK taxpayers’ money is already being used to prop up the basket-case currency.

When you get elected in England, Hollande, they will finally give a flying f*** what you have to say.

Who’d have thought that when times got tough for the EU, the finger pointing would commence? /s.

Yup. And the way things are going, I'm a bit concerned that we'll need to go over and settle the 3rd European Civil War, in not too many more years.

Look to see more of this finger pointing—Anti-Americanism and Anti-Capitalism is coming. The French will find out first hand what other nations had to learn the hard way. There is no Free Lunch. Look to see Pro-Muslim laws, Pro-Union laws, and higher taxes. Just wait for the inflation and riots. Time to cross off France as a vacation spot.

One of my favorite quotes,
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue
is the equal sharing of misery.”
Winston Churchill

Out of the frying pan and into the fire. France was never on my vacation bucket list...I'm not into abuse. My mom and dad went in the early 80’s and my mom was fluent in French. She heard all the snide comments the locals made at restaurants, hotels and shops when other Americans were being “obvious” Americans. She told me the French smile while disparaging you.

Firstly, some Americans (and some British, Irish, Germans, Aussies etc) can be loud and obnoxious. I have encountered them in France and elsewhere. Thankfully, like most holidaymakers, they are a minority. But the stereotype of the camera-wearing, baseball capped ‘Yank’ who sorts problems BY SPEAKING MUCH LOUDER does exist. As does the loud German, yobbish Brit, drunken Scot.....

I have rolled my eyes, mumbled under my breath and made ‘snide comments’ to French people about loud and obnoxious Americans on holiday. But I dont think all Americans are like that. Just that individual or family.

Secondly, makes your own mind up. I like things and places my parents dont. France is a beautiful country, Paris probably the greatest city on earth, and is well worth a visit.

“Churchill said that socialism is the gospel of envy.”

I say is it also the religion of thieves.

Aside from all the comments on substance which I mostly agree with.

But, how about the matter of style?

You get elected on Sunday and by Monday you are “firing broadsides” at a country who is, by all objective criteria, an ally?

Who does this? (I know, I know - my question is a rhetorical one!)

As long as we sell to both sides, I am OK with it.

French president has a go at UK Government. So what else is new? The UK and France are and always have been at daggres drawn. This is the equivalent of a “dog bites man” story.

You don’t know the half of it. Most of the extreme BS we have to put up with from “La Belle Francais” never gets reported in the US. You’re separated from them by an ocean. We have 20 miles of channel, and there’s a tunnel been built under that.

Yeah, Paris is absolutely fantastic (apart from the fact that it is fulll of Parisians). BUT - that happy state of affairs is only achieved by moving most of the people, the dirt, the waste and the squalor into the suburbs.
