François Hollande Abandons “Milibandism”

In a panicky new year message France’s President François Hollande has pledged to cut public spending, lower taxes and reduce labour costs for businesses in a bid to convince French voters that he is trying to avert le triple dip. The opposite of the policies which can be described as “Milibandism”.

It seems only yesterday that Ed was welcomed onto the steps of the Elysee Palace with a handshake from his new best comrade, saying:

milibande

“What President Hollande is seeking to do in France and what he is seeking to do in leading the debate in Europe is find that different way forward. We are in agreement in seeking that new way that needs to be found and I think can be found.”

Socialist Hollande now has the lowest net approval rating ever recorded for a French President at +20%. When you are a loser no one wants to shake your hand, as this batch of photos of Hollande with world leaders shows. Well, all apart from one other socialist leader with an even worse net approval rating of -34%, Monsieur Miliband…

    And when he was up he was up
    And when he was down he was down
    And when he was neither up nor down
    He was always Ed Miliband.

      the problem with ‘lower labour costs for industry’ euro-style is subsidies

      sure the french consumer is screwed sideways by utilities prices – but industry is not, and, perhaps, as in supposedly efficient germany, is heavily subsidised

      could his idea be to subsidise labour costs rather than reduce (ludicrous0 labour taxes on employers?

      which would put the pressure back on megaband – if nic’s aren’t income tax – then why are uk employers paying part of them? and why are uk employers paying business rates several times the level of the cost of services that they consume?

      A pair of losers. Socialists are clinging on to the fact that they have a small poll lead 16 months from an election and that they don’t need much of a lead for a majority. Unfortunately, they haven’t grasped the concept of the electoral cycle any more than Brown and Balls did the economic cycle.

      It isn’t enough, Miliband is heading for a big defeat.

      Labour Liars (as usual)

      From the previous thread. Rail expert and fares analyst Barrie Doe says, since privatisation rail season tickets have increased or in some cases DECREASED by +/- 5% in real terms.

      Rail fares were hiked when LABOUR introduced the rail fares escalator in 2004 (inflation + n%).

      Anytime fares have increased but only 20%* of people buy those types of tickets, most are advance and off-peak tickets which are substantially cheap now than they have ever been.

      *Those 20% are usually business people who see themselves as too important to lower themselves to buy a cheaper ticket…or who are crap at planning their journeys, or who work for the BBC and can’t be arsed to save other peoples money.

    Hollande will do as he is told by the french farmers who will take to the streets in their tractors followed by the air traffic controllers and dock workers.

    Hollande is a dangerous example of an apparatchik given responsibility over his grade level.
    He is also a typical example of an EuroSozi. (A French version of Clegg).

She was elected as the token woman in the Christian Democratic Union Party hierarchy after re-unification and quickly and ruthlessly got rid of the “old farts” that promoted her on the assumption they could control her ambitions…like most they found out too late that she was smarter than the whole lot of them put together and twice as ruthless
