What has happened to Hollande? After coming to London and showering the capital and the Prime Minister with praise, he even managed to crack a funny:
“We also have an excellent relationship, as was shown again today at all levels, including in the field of defence where we have some ongoing, active cooperation. This shows that, beyond our differences, the most important thing is what unites us. It is the third time that David Cameron has welcomed me to London, though I did invite him to come to Paris even though we are not planning to organise the Olympic Games any time soon.”
Now this afternoon it’s reported that Hollande is going to be furthering his planned spending cuts. After his gold-gaffe and three months in power, it seems reality is starting to bite for Flamby.
