Well, as our troubles grow and proliferate there is some comfort to be had from looking over the Channel and watching 'Micro' Macron slowly but surely shrinking even further.
As The Spectator illustrated so wittily', 'L' Empereur' has fewer and fewer clothes to hide his titchy body because, according to Zero Hedge, his 'approval rating' in less than 18 months has sunk to 29% which is even lower than Sarkozy's was at the same time. He might draw some slight, very slight, comfort from the fact Hollande's rating was even lower at 23%.
Apparently he has not just adopted an 'open door' policy to immigrants but is intent on offering the services of a doorman to assist them! Also, he is determined to take on the French unions and break their strangle-hold, to which one can only mutter 'bonne chance avec celui-là'! That means 'good luck with that one!' and you deserve a smack because your Mum and Dad told you to pay attention in French lessons!
I do not wish the French ill - no really, honestly, I don't - but if they will keep electing jumped up little pip-squeaks like the Hungarian dwarf or 'Hollande the Humper' or 'Micro-Macron' then I'm afraid they deserve the outcome.
ADDITION: No sooner written than over-taken - typique! I refer to an article in The Spectator written by the ever-excellent Jonathan Miller who I believe lives in France. He asks why 'Micro' Macron is taking such a hard, almost fanatical, line against British Brexit given that France exports far more to Britain than we do to them. Indeed, some French industries will be severely damaged if we walk away with no deal:
Whether it is Électricité de France, up to its neck in the British power industry, including Hinkley Point B, or SNCF with its control of Eurostar, or PSA Peugeot Citroen, with its UK assembly lines, and a brilliant English woman at the head of the Citroën division, or Airbus, which depends on the UK for its wings and many engines. This is only the start of a very long list. The British have much to offer France in inward investment and defence cooperation, not least in the Sahel. Why this petty connerie, then, from Macron? Curiously, given that the French export more to the UK than the UK to France, and there has been a vast exchange of population, to mutual benefit, all these deep and constructive relationships seem less important to Macron than protecting the ideological purity of the EU by flagellation of those seeking an exit from this nirvana. Or maybe there is more to it.
