The Problem With France

They have no balls. French riots spread beyond Paris

It really is beggar's belief it's got to this stage. 'Political ineptitude'

"Youths burned buildings and more than 500 vehicles in the eighth consecutive night of rioting. Nearly 80 arrests were made in Paris."

If this happened in Britiain the police and probably the army would be called in. Admittedly we're a lot more experienced after the troubles in Northern Ireland, but the French response has been worse than useless. (No change there then...)

Mr Sarkozy had sparked some criticism with hardline comments saying the government would not allow "troublemakers, a bunch of hoodlums, think they can do whatever they want".

WTF?! Met 'crtiticism' for making 'hardline comments'? Get the fucking army in there are restore peace & order for fucksake. Unbelievable -- even for the French.

    Someone told me today that their attitude to hijabs in secular schools is part of the problem... I don't consider rioting an appropriate response to having to abide by school uniforms and secularism is what French government is famous for...

    Actually the French government is famous for surrendering. They just can't figure out who to give the papers to.

    Guess the french are being soft as normal, totally the wrong thing to do as they are just making a rod for their own backs...(that would be a metric rod of course)

    It is settled, I am off to Paris to walk in and demand they hand over France to me with imdiate effect. I reckon I have a good chance of them meeting my demands. Nothing more than spineless surrender monkies who will reap what they sow.

    I think Britain should just walk in and take over any part of that country that sits near our land, so when they invite anybody who chooses to invade their excuse for a country, we can sit back and laugh at them. After all what have the French ever done for us?


    again nice articles on here, i have added a link on to this blog. keep up the good work.

    i could spend hours doing the full list of reasons why we need to get out of the mess we are in as far as the eu goes and i have also mentioned them on my blog before.

    im happy with the original idea of a common market but what we have is taking the piss.
