Le Gueuloir du Vendredi – After DSK

This has little to do with translation and yet I would like people to know, who are not particularly savvy with French politics, that it is probable that the next head of the IMF is going to be a French woman who belongs to a government that is a hardline supporter of unchained liberalism. This government, hand-in-hand with trade unions, superbly ignored millions of demonstrators who protested for weeks, against the basing of retirement age, and furthermore massively crippled the purchasing power of the majority of people, whilst lavishing fiscal presents on their selected rich friends!

Furthermore, according to and revealed by the weekly newspaper “Le Canard Enchaîné”, in 2008, on the order of the French President, she was requested to, using tortuous proceedings of arbitration, allow Mr Tapie, a supporter of the President and also a former supporter of left-winged  President Mitterrand, to receive the meager sum of 285 million euros of public money (including 45 million euros of “moral prejudice”) on the outcome of his battle against the bank “le Crédit Lyonnais” when he should have usually, according to the norm,  lost the case.

This matter is currently being investigated by the French “Cour de justice de la République” amidst general indifference.

Et voilà!
