    Apparently, all odds are that Nicolas Sarkozy will become President of France in 2007.

    interesting, it would be a relief for him to turn out to be half the man tony blair has been, both for GB and for the Atlantic Alliance

    thank you for a really good post, this is very interesting information

    Not Attorney General.
    In France, the "Attorney General" is The Minister of Justice, also called "Garde des Sceaux" (Keeper Of Seals, it came from the old french monarchy).

    --------------------------

    Nicolas Sarkozy is a good politician.
    His brother is at the head (or will be soon) of the MEDEF, the association will the french companies boss.

    But there is one problem with N. Sarkozy, and in France evrybody feel it (I can admit it 's not the case out of our borders ;) ) : He says often good things...but they're rarely followed by effects...
    He promises a lot, and after, nothing. that' not a really good point.
    But one thing is sure : actually, he is the only man who can seriously become president : the right, except him, can't win (Bayrou has not enough voices, De Villiers is a dumbass, Le Pen is Le Pen), the left is still too divised...only for the PS (socialist), 4 or 5 men could become candidate for the presidence.....


    I hope, if he woulde become president, that he won't touch the french public services, or not too much, same thing for the health care system, France has the best healthcare system, and maybe the best public services... I don't want that these things become same as in UK....(a piece of shit)

    Best in Europe?

    Where will the cuts be made if not from "public services"?

    that's the question.

    The french public services are good, excellent, and the population won't accept if they disappear.

    Maybe in the UK they were cuts in these services, but look at the result : the railways suck, the healthcare system too....when you're more than 70, or something like that, you can't have more teeth care...in France we've the luck to have the best healthcare system of the world (classification of the World Health Organisation).
    it's not to say "we're the best", only to show our attachment to our services ;)


    Maybe he will find a way to have money without touch too much to these services.

    i think that's one of the main point of misunderstood between our two countries ;)

    we have really different cionception of the public services. :)

    Every French mother wants her children to be good little socialists entrenched in their federal government jobs.
