Mops Posted April 10, 2005 Share Posted April 10, 2005 "I won't get political here mops but I beg to differ on that statement, all our French friends, up and down the country and others we have spoken with, in the main, detested her vision and the way she let people simply fall by the wayside, something France and its inherent Socialism cannot (for the most part)stand by and watch. The strikes you so often see here are the solidarity of a race that the Dame de Fer simply would not have broken." Sorry Miki, we'll have to agree to differ on this one. Maybe you mix with very different French people from us (but must confess many of our French friends we have known for nearly 40 years) or perhaps they are of the same political bent as us. Why is there so much envy when people succeed? Everything we have is through hard work, sacrificing a normal family life to live and work overseas for over 20+ years. There is no inherited wealth, we haven't ever sponged on society, we paid for private health care and education and yes we object to having to pay for those who believe that the state owes them a living. Likewise we don't expect any cash handouts from France or Britain. If this makes me a capitalist then I'm proud to be one!
