French government collapses, socialism still isn’t working

The cheese eating surrender monkey’s government has collapsed in acrimony.

Francois Hollande has dissolved the government and is now asking the same failed socialist Prime Minister to pick another bunch of socialists. The Frogs ?clearly haven’t learned that socialism doesn’t work no matter which bunch of socialists is in charge.

France has coherent single party government and socialism fails and hurts the people it purports to help, imagine what a coalition of socialists would be like.

French President Francois Hollande dissolved the government on Monday after open feuding in his Cabinet over the country’s stagnant economy.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls offered up his Socialist government’s resignation after accusing the outspoken economy minister of crossing a line with his blunt criticism of the government’s policies. Hollande accepted the resignation and ordered Valls to form a new government by Tuesday.

France has had effectively no economic growth this year, unemployment is hovering around 10 percent, and Hollande’s approval ratings are in the teens. ??

The country is under pressure from the European Union to get its finances in order, but Economy Minister Arnaud Montebourg has questioned whether the austerity pressed by the EU will kick start French growth. Hollande’s promises to cut taxes and make it easier for businesses to open and operate have stalled, meanwhile, in large part because of the divisions among Socialists.

“A major change in our economy policy,” was what Montebourg had said was needed, just days after Hollande had expressly said there would be no change in direction.

The minister’s comments angered the Socialist leadership, which said Montebourg’s job was to support the government, not criticize it from within.

“He’s not there to start a debate but to put France back on the path of growth,” Carlos Da Silva, the Socialist Party spokesman, told Le Figaro newspaper.

Montebourg’s criticism of austerity ? and his pointed remarks about German Chancellor Angela Merkel ? have rankled before.

When flying into Israel via Paris I got to experience the French bureaucracy…what a farce. I was on an Air France plane, and they parked it out the back next to plowed fields, brought not enough buses to drive us like 10 kms to the terminal…then parked it beside a finger tower…and made us all climb 4 flights of stairs to end up in the terminal…after waiting for 20 minutes stopped 5 meters from the said stairs.

Collecting luggage and customs was a similar exercise in frustration…despite all that waiting on the tarmac we still got there before our bags. France couldn’t organise a root in a brothel, but they sure know how to march backwards.
