BBC: French battle of wills

So a battle of wills is taking place, between a goverment that insists France cannot afford its current pension plan and many workers who believe the French way of life is being compromised because of mistakes by bankers.

This struggle looks set to intensify in the days ahead.

My personal view is that only the 'paralysis of France' (or any other country taking the same government route) will lead to the necessary steps to improve the equality and equilibrium of society.

The patient is now so sick that major surgery is needed immediately.

You can't be me, I'm taken
