Excellent progress in France!


Biggest strikes ever today. Because even a really good government would have been buffeted by this economic crisis, and Sarko has been running a really bad government. At least you can read Le Monde for free online, because the newsstands were closed.

Excellent progress in France!

  1. See what happens when you criticize The One, Wells?

    (p.s. check the link in your post…I don’t think it’s going where you think it is)

    • fixed.

  2. Strikes are a popular hobby the whole country can join in, aren’t they? In France anyway.

  3. Gotta hand it to the French, they never do things by halves.

    We have an economic crisis – we close Parliament.

    They have an economic crisis – they close the whole country.

    • Yeah, but they love it!

  4. They know how to hold a strike.

  5. Get this. From union Confédération Française Démocratique du Travail’s Thierry Dedieu: “We don’t want to have to pay for a crisis that we’re not responsible for.”

    Right, because the economic situation in France has nothing to do with an overcompensated and undercompetitive workforce. Nothing.

    • So your controller only lets you have last years’ newspapers ?
