Socialists celebrate a victory in France as Francois Hollande wins the Presidential election, round two, augering well for the people who detest the austerity measures which were destroying jobs and creating extra social security burden for the state but not much else.
Monsieur Hollande, Fief of Tulle, hopes to increase the public expenditure by 20 Billion Euros in the short term to stimulate growth and create jobs, by taxing the people at the top, 45 percent for those earning over 150,000 Euros and 75 percent for the lucky 1,000,000 Euro earners. Over the longer term of 5 years, he is intending to implement measures to cut the deficit by 100 Billion Euros. This is a great book balancing act, but if the love he has for the people of France is reciprocated by the citizens of the Republic, then France will have a happy atmosphere for his term in office. When austerity doesn't work, an alternative was needed, and Francois Hollande is promising to provide that alternative.
It seems like a breathe of fresh air for France, and may prove a catalyst for the rest of Europe, in olde words, the wind of change.
