Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The creeping expansionism of the French state has also been sucking the lifeblood out of the private sector. France is the only eurozone country that has not reduced the financial weight of the state over the past 10 years. At 54 per cent of GDP, government spending is among the highest in the world.

It seems to me that this statement is only somewhat manipulative, no? Your graph supports all of those claims.
