Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But isn't the UK a better example of what's in store for France if they go the Sarko route? I mean, it would take a long time for France to have 10 million* people living (somehow) without healthcare, almost half a million* people in prison, and thousands* of French troops killed and maimed in Muslim civil wars. Not to mention not having ANY public transportation for 90% of the country.

Besides, for all our faults, we DO have a viable opposition party and a wealth of great possibilities to take over the country in 2008.

* I'm adjusting these figures to reflect that France has about 1/5 the population of the U.S.
