Some of you may know that France voted today for a new President. The two candidates were Nicholas Sarkozy, ex Interior Minister, and Segolene Royal, who has been running the Poitou- Charentes region of France, and is the first woman to reach the final round of voting for the Presidency. It has been announced that Sarkozy has definitely won and Royal has conceded. There will be a terrific shake-up here - good I think for small businesses but he will not tolerate social security cheats or those who won't find work. He will also let people work more than the 35 hours weekly which at present is mandatory and leads to the two hour lunch break taken by all workers. So there will be some changes in La Belle France! His foreign policy will change things too, inside and outside the EU.
