I've noticed that the British left and right are generally siding with their respective French counterparts, despite the discrepancy in policy and governing style. Hollande's most similiar British counterpart who has held a fairly high position is probably Ken Livingstone. Much more of a leftist than Blair/Brown/Miliband. Likewise Tories have seemed to side with Sarko on the basis of his economic policy despite his quite frankly homophobic and xenophobic social policy. This comes as Cam says he wants to legalise gay marriage in Britain.
So basically there's increased Eurozone instability for a while?
We'll see how the markets react..but yeah youre probably right.
Dont forget that Greece are having elections atm..and the two biggest pro-austerity parties are taking an ass-kicking atm! That will complicate the austerity pact for sure
Secondly he tried to be Tony Blair in regards to strengthening ties with the Americans, or rather, kissing American ass. Thirdly, he made some quite disparaging remarks about the UK during euro-zone crises negotiations.
