So he got in… being an EU resident without the right to vote in France I now wonder what the future holds for my little family. The idea of becoming a Father to a child who will be born in a few short weeks makes me perhaps, take the elections a little more seriously than previously.
Seeing the comments of a few French friends about the new President doesn’t give me a lot of confidence “Welcome to Sarkoland” “Pays de Merde” and comparisons to Adolf Hitler sort of make you sit up and take notice.
Thumpah didn’t know who to vote for – as she is French, she seemed like many, wanting to give a spoiled vote. In the end she voted for a candidate.
Last night we saw riots on the TV in Place de la Bastille – I sat there wondering if the new President was planning on getting out his “Kärcher” to sweep away the scum and rubble. If he’ll make other insensitive remarks in other sensitive situations.
Sarko said last night that he is for “Europe” – perhaps he could start by giving us EU citizens the vote? It would be the right thing to do. As an unemployed European and soon to be Daddy, I really don’t have an awful lot of confidence in what he has to say. For many he has Le Pen leanings, only time will prove if this is true.
