Back-pedalling on voting rights for étrangers?

A promise often made by the gauche is to give the right to vote in local elections to les étrangers  who have lived in France for five years.

Of course EU citizens have this already, but when the French say étrangers they tend to mean non-Europeans.

Now they are in power the wind seems to have gone out of the sails of this initiative, as it did several times in the past:

Not surprised by this.

I wish I could draw a little animation of Hollande on a bike, slowly backpeddling and backing away, looking in the air and whistling, royally ignoring all the problems that are before him, including panneaux of all his promises and all France's problems.

 

Why would he be much different from other politicans?
