11:42 am - French Elections
The French elections are happening soon and as last time they 'messed up' on their 'first round' its been a bit more interesting. France is very good for striking, but its in dire need of some major sorting out, they have a excellent welfare system but its hard to create jobs so unemployment is a problem and the welfare system hits companies etc etc etc

A few facts about France - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/6547841.stm

The interesting and thoughtful 'Europe Diary' which is by a BBC Europe correspondent - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/europe_diary/default.stm

Either read or not - its interesting to me as France is quite close to the UK (20 miles) and its a big member of the EU. Both those are significant to the UK (and therefore myself).
