Why France voted for Hollande: revealed

by | 7th, May 2012

FRANCOIS Hollande is now running France. Germany gets Greece, Portugal and Ireland. Hollande gets France. It’s a topsy-turvey world in the go-ahead Europe Union.

But what did the French vote for. The Times says it was a “revolt against austerity”. The Indy says “France turns left”. The Telegraph says the EU is “on course for turmoil” (where has that paper been?). But the pick of the bunch is the Mail, which declares that the French have voted for a return to “ruinous spending”.

Is that really what they voted for?
