French industry warns of brain drain
If Ségolène Royal is elected president in May it will trigger an exodus of people from France’s financial and biotechnology sectors to London and other foreign cities, according to some of the country’s top business leaders.
“If Ségolène Royal wins, we will go back to the situation we had with Mitterrand between 1981 and 1983. But it would be three-times worse,” said the chairman of one CAC40 company, referring to François Mitterrand, the last leftwing president of France.
“There are many French people who are ready to leave the country. Mitterrand was quite pragmatic, able to shift his position after a couple of years when he saw it was not working. But Ms Royal is ideologically fixed on her position,” the chairman said.
Can you imagine? Ségolène Royal is worse than commie-lover Mitterrand? France is on its way to the dark ages (which it has never left anyway). Pity us.
