Re: French Presidential Elections 2012

still, you're not gonna get that kind of economic revolution by force. it's just not going to happen, that much is clear as of now.

and back on topic, france, under socialist rule, will definitely veto any pro-austerity legislation that comes out of brussels and directly impacts sovereign policy-making. for some reason sarkozy (i mean the real sarkozy) is laying low for the time being, but chances are holland will not go down without a hell of a fight. anyone can rile up the greeks, the italians and the spanish in the current political climate, basically merkel has been the odd man out since 08.

and then what? there's just no way the euro can survive such a perfect storm. neither merkel and her silent supporters up north nor the southern fringe is gonna step back.
