Pommy Leftie Blames Frog Leftie
Biased-BBC asks a similar question, quoting the bleary-eyed imaginings of John Simpson: Simpson also blames the French system for its neglect of the immigrant 'burbs, yet- correct me if I'm wrong, but- for most of the period he cites (30 years) it had leftist politicians like Mitterand in charge, and Chirac is hardly of the robust right. Now suddenly Sarkozy's at fault (not a mention of France's generous social welfare system, the French model etc), when he hasn't even had a serious bite at the governing cherry. Just who is playing politics, Mr. Simpson?How is it that the well fed leftist keep bellowing about the UK being either ridden with malaise caused by the right, or a powderkeg, and not see it in the history of tensions in France or the grim state that people leave their neighborhoods in?
