I went out this morning to see if I could find any evidence of the Presidential election that took place here in France yesterday. If there was a party, today all of the evidence has been removed. Now the world is watching to see what Francois Hollande will do next and everyone wishes him well.
I feel a cliche coming on: “I feel the hand of history is on our shoulders” lets hope our French friends are not disappointed this time. I don’t think I would be over exaggerating to say that Nicholas Sarkozy was a very devisive president that split opinion in France. The photograph above tells the story. Some would say that in order to hang onto power he appealed to the far right and played the anti-islam card as well as stirring up sentiment against immigrants. I wonder what he will do now?
