In France, most politicians are basically never-been much, and talking, eating, womanizing, travelling and complaining forever after a few months as ministers (and well paid for that, with excellent fringes, early and golden parachute and/or retirement).

Some try hard to be funny, because they heard on TV, that most women prefer funny people …

Some try to get rich(er), because they heard on TV, that most people prefer rich and generous friends when it comes to paying restaurants or holidays.

French political cuisine : Et voilà !

Some try to become president (of this, that, to France), because they read in French history books, that it’s easier with (some) women when one has power.

Some French politicians can read English …

But most prefer read “Le Monde”, watch French TV (especially if they are on the screen), and internet porn.

Most would pay a fortune (out of other people’s pocket) to get their picture on front page of a French newspaper, especially right before elections in France.

I have a Franco-German Dream …

Should France and Germany merge into a single economic body, that would create the third economic powerhouse in the world, right behind the United-States and China, with 147 million people and a common GDP close to 6,000 bn dollars …

Of course, mega-mergers are management nightmares and big dreams may fail (small is beautiful, some have been saying and re-saying for a while), there are a few issues including Euro-things, some national political realities and quite a lot of economic constraints, to begin with, and of course not all French, neither all Germans, nor their neighbors and partners have that same dream, all the less, since even people who know well, or love, or both know and love well Europe, don’t necessarily feel like learning and speaking German, French or both on top of English or whatever works to survive and be reasonably happy in XXIst century real Europe.

And of course, it may not be taken for granted, that nowadays’ French and German leaders could be up to the job (not everybody is Konrad Adenauer or Charles de Gaulle), or may at least manage to join forces and share visions to save the Euro(pe).
