Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well Jérôme, I fully agree with the existence of a bias in how things are presented, and loathe the way Sarkozy seeks confrontation everywhere.

Now, in your heart of hearts, do you personally think that the SNCF pension system is not generous? Or, to look at the general pay package, that bonuses for kilometers travelled include a no-bonus bonus so that it is paid even when no kilometers are travelled -during holidays- is not on the generous side?

Yes, there is bias, the word "generous" without explanation is an invitation to take side. I would, though, not call it inaccurate, especially compared to the normal pension system. Maybe "comparatively generous" then.

Having said that, I'm not happy with the way Sarkozy went into this -he was clearly seeking confrontation.
