Nothing wrong with some Victorian values in my book.
Nothing wrong with working hard and making money; that's a very good ethic in fact. We have plenty of people coming from the continent who come to put that in practice - many French in fact!
Corruption also exists in France, but under another form. The French diseases are cronism, hedonism and lazyness.
The US and the UK subscribe fully to capitalism; it has its merits and its drawback. Nothing wrong with greed and the desire to succeed; those are good motivators.
I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but the french are not lazy.
France has a very high productivity rate.

You don't seem to like France too much.
I guess now you have found your paradise.

The american liberal system is not for the french.

Greed is a sin.
Not a good thing anyway.

Sarko must go, he can thank HB when he was elected in 2007.

France is alright as a country; shame about the people though ...

People who can't work than 35 hours a week, and no older than 60 years old are lazy in my book.

Productivity is abysimal in France; one of the reasons their industries are moving abroad, and businesses don't recruit.

Other countries work much harder, 40, 45, 48, up to 60 hours a week, and up to 65 or 67 years old.

Why is a guy from Hollande running for French presidency?
His name is Hollande. He is real Frenchman from France, he is good candidate better than Sarkozy. Sarkozy is a disaster for FRance.
And this country, what you write is Holland and not Hollande.

Mr Hollande is better. I think too. He has many good proposals.
Sarkozy is real disaster, he will ruin France if he would be reelected. He can start for instance in Israel or in Hungary ( I think that he has no chance in Hungary too, because they have already elected ).
France is great country, wonderful European country and France needs good president- Hollande is much better and normal than Sarkozy.

You may soon find out!

Hollande wants to drop the auterity policy which is the cornerstone of Frau Merkel economic plan and the present Franco-German alliance.

Before long, Hollande and Merkel could end up in opposite camps in Europe.

Sarko is known as a good debater, and that's the way he bulldozed his way in the UMP to become presidential candidate 5 years ago. His brashness and bullshit got him elected: he promised so much and he brought a new aggressive style to politics.

Facts are that in 5 years, he implemented none of the policies he proposed, with success.
He didn't put France back at work; he didn't improve the economy. He didn't make the towns and suburbs safer at night; he didn't tackle crime.
He didn't address the problem of immigration; he paid lip service to it.
He promised a lot and deliver nothing. The French have noticed.

But it's no surprise that he looked good during a TV debate; he is used to lie. Plenty of rethoric with no effect. All mouth and no action.

France is really in trouble now, whichever this election goes.

Sondage Ifop: Hollande jugé meilleur que Sarkozy

http://www.parismatch.com/Actu-Match/Politiqu...

Notre sondage Ifop/Fiducial pour Paris Match, Europe 1 et Public Sénat indique que le débat de mercredi ne fera probablement pas bouger les lignes en termes d'intentions de vote. Mais François Hollande a été jugé le plus convaincant par 42% des sondés, contre 34% pour Nicolas Sarkozy.

Perhaps you prefer Victorian values? The 66 hour plus working week? Whats more, it appears that you have no problem with British politics, where graft and curruption is rife.(expences). Not to mention Lobbying and phone tapping. Where is your morality?
The City of London in collusion with Wall St. crashed the world economy (yet again), its called pure greed! Don't you know that!!
Pooh
there are just real english values and additionally children work as slaves, it is practised in Afghanistan occupied by Britain and it was practised by Britain empire through centuries in Africa and Asia.
But France is normal country and normal country needs normal president, who has normal proposals and Mr Hollande is just such candidate. His proposals are really good and he will be good president. It is time to protect France from people so called global big fishes: speculators, prowar mongers etc, who want to destroy it.

F Bayrou says he will vote for Hollande. I think Sarkozy's fate is sealed.

M. Le Pen, although right-wing, refuses to endorse Sarko. It's predicted that a large number of NF votes will go to Hollande too.

Only 48 hours to wait to see the result.
Sarkozy seems depressed already.

Is the little pekkerhead crying yet? I can't wait to see Sarkozy sobbing like a little girl. I bet his stupid wife leaves him shortly after he loses. She will only stick around with the short guy as long as he is president.
