The way the left responds to democracy

In France, riots, Sarkozy on May 8, 2007 at 9:53 am

Looking at these scenes, you can see why Sarkozy is desperately needed in France. If the left thinks this is the way to respond to democratic elections, then they need to be tackled head-on.

The French have seen the light

In France, Sarkozy on May 7, 2007 at 5:20 pm

Good on the French! At last they have voted in their masses to ditch the status quo and try and bring France in to the 21st Century. I love visiting France, but you do feel the country is economically backward compared to other western countries. Hopefully this is now going to change.

Our revolution started in 1979; hopefully they will remember 2007 as their turning point. To all of you who have left-leaning views, please remember this: If it was not for the Thatcher economic reforms, we would not have the same standard of living we do now. Mrs Thatcher was told she wouldn’t be able to govern unless she sought the co-operation of the trades’ unions. Well, we know the outcome of that one. I just hope M. Sarkozy is as strong as the ‘Iron Lady.’

Good to be back.

I have had a very good break and thanks for the comments. Welshcakes; thank you for telling me i have a lovely accent, and Delicolor – you should be American with spelling like that – I am from the North-East of England, but I can’t understand most geordies! Thanks everyone though. I recorded this one on Good Friday as you will see.

I’m going off on holiday
