After Brexit France is dreaming of Frexit

Frexit

If Marine Le Pen, party leader, were to win the presidency in 2017, she would seek to emulate the UK’s attempt to renegotiate its membership terms against the threat of an in-out referendum in France, one of the EU’s founding nations. In the meantime, the National Front is hoping the “Brexit” debate will help fuel French Euroscepticism, to the party’s electoral advantage.

Simply because people will learn more about it and realise how undemocratic it is and how much it has been a source of security weakness rather than strength,” he added, ahead of the upcoming EU summit to agree the proposed British deal.

FN Front National is gaining more and more authority but small party is growing as well like UPR.

 

Marie Myriam « L’oiseau et l’enfant » Eurovision 1977

The last time France win eurovision was in 1977

Comme un enfant aux yeux de lumière
Qui voit passer au loin les oiseaux
Comme l’oiseau bleu survolant la Terre
Vois comme le monde, le monde est beauBeau le bateau, dansant sur les vagues
Ivre de vie, d’amour et de vent
Belle la chanson naissante des vagues
Abandonnée au sable blancBlanc l’innocent, le sang du poète
Qui en chantant, invente l’amour
Pour que la vie s’habille de fête
Et que la nuit se change en jour

Jour d’une vie où l’aube se lève
Pour réveiller la ville aux yeux lourds
Où les matins effeuillent les rêves
Pour nous donner un monde d’amour

L’amour c’est toi, l’amour c’est moi

L’oiseau c’est toi, l’enfant c’est moi.

Moi je ne suis qu’une fille de l’ombre
Qui voit briller l’étoile du soir
Toi mon étoile qui tisse ma ronde
Viens allumer mon soleil noir

Noire la misère, les hommes et la guerre
Qui croient tenir les rênes du temps
Pays d’amour n’a pas de frontière
Pour ceux qui ont un cœur d’enfant

Comme un enfant aux yeux de lumière
Qui voit passer au loin les oiseaux
Comme l’oiseau bleu survolant la terre
Nous trouverons ce monde d’amour

L’amour c’est toi, l’amour c’est moi
L’oiseau c’est toi, l’enfant c’est moi

L’oiseau c’est toi, l’enfant c’est moi
L’oiseau c’est toi, l’enfant c’est moi.

The 3 problems of the french president Hollande

In France socialist control the presidency, the government, both houses of parliament, the regions, and all the big towns and cities. And in his first eight months in office, Hollande has done virtually nothing. He is like a stunned bunny in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle called « Harsh Economic Reality. »

Les problèmes de Hollande

 

Hollande has 3 problems.

1 Hollande doesn’t have a plan. Tens of thousands of people are losing their jobs each week, and it is going to get worse and worse.
2. Hollande failed in making industry more competitive, reducing government spending. He cannot do these things because one of the constituencies he needs to take on is made up of the people who voted him into power.
3. Now Hollande is facing the worst situation possible because no one believes a word he says. He delivered a robust New Year’s message last week, watched by millions; yet 75% don’t believe he can deliver on its promise.

France is the 5th richest country in the world. It is the world’s sixth largest exporter. It has the second largest diplomatic network in the world, after the US. It is a member of the UN Security Council. It is the most visited country in the world, welcoming 82 million visitors last year. It is a major nuclear power. It is the true founder of the European Union. And it is in a terrible mess.
