French president declares economic emergency

Recommended Posts

PARIS — French President Francois Hollandepledged Monday to redefine France’s business model and declared what he called “a state of economic and social emergency,” unveiling a 2-billion-euro ($2.2 billion) plan to revive hiring and catch up with a fast-moving world economy.

The measures he proposed, however, are relatively modest, and he said they would not “put into question” the 35-hour workweek. With his country under a state of emergency since extremist attacks in November, Hollande did not seek to assume any new emergency powers over the economy.

And a social emergency? Hmm... didn't they ever stop to think that allowing all those people in who are on welfare might have something to do with that? Nah. Eat it middle class, until you are so full you pop along with everything you hold dear!

Nope, it couldn't possibly be all money spent on "migrants".
Nope, no way. :wacko:

France brings in bulldozers to smash a third of the Calais Jungle after migrants REFUSE to move into new £20million housing because 'it looks like a prison camp'

Despite the much improved living conditions in the new camp, Jungle residents have refused to move, claiming to want to stay put in their makeshift tents.

'Community leaders', in the Jungle released a statement earlier today, 'respectfully declining' the local government's orders to vacate a third of the camp. 
-----
According to volunteers working in the Jungle, residents are reluctant to move into the new camp because 'it looks like a detention centre'. 

The new camp consists of metal transport containers which have been converted into heated homes, complete with power sockets, heated towel rails, toilets and washing facilities,

Yesterday, charity workers complained at the constrained time scale they had been given by French authorities to move more than 1,500 people into the new £20million camp.

Huh. I imagine there are quite a few French citizens that would be grateful to be invited to live there free. You, know ones who's tax dollars pay for it.
