Well, that was fast: Chirac has caved to protesters and revoked the new youth labor law.
While my background is French, I am no avid lover of the Frenchs profound will to appease at all costs.
I mean, for crying out loud, around the year 911 A.D. or so, Normandy was created by the French giving land to the Paris-invading Vikings to help keep the peace.
Anyone surprised by this? Not me...
Dain, would your prescription to Frances ills involve loading the protestors onto trains (in this case high-speed trains - haha), by any chance??
Not if boats would be more effective.
What a country! The Pres. can simply revoke a law legislatively enacted?? How bizarre the democratic form of government the French revel in. And to think my misguided kids have learned French, which I pray they will never put to use over there.
As Karl Marx might have said...
"Socialism is the opiate of the masses."
Just my $.02
why do you hate the french so much???? it borders on being irrational.
