    It will be good if he does the things he says. 12k jobs a year? I don't see anyone complaining at that.

    Bad news for French immigrants
    Hollande is socialist not national front

    (Original post by jakemittle)
    Dude, he has most likely won
    Indeed, but his projected victory margine is by less than 2%

    Well I have a nice place set up in Genève... like hell I'll live in a Socialist France.
    Then you must never have lived in France before Sarkozy :pierre:

    Won 51.9% of the vote apparently.

    Pretty close stuff.
    52-48 gives him a 4% majority and more than 1million more votes than Sarkozy. So not that close

    He has also appealed to the valuable extreme far right voters, on issues such as North Africans. If this is his plans for Roma then plans for others can't be much better.

    Out of interest, why are you so opposed to living in a socialist France?

    What's he doing to the North Africans? I thought he was going to make France the first country in western Europe to recognise the state of Palestine, hardly a right wing nutjob.

    I know next to nothing about French politics, but has a projection ever proved to be wrong?
    Just sour grapes. They were actually results with almost 70-80% of the votes in. Only the biggest cities should still be counting their votes now but only minor changes of no consequence can be expected

    Was wondering who would be the first to hit me with that

    Chirac was not left-leaning socially but he was a member of the Communist Party and enjoyed relations with the Soviet union.
