Necrothreading much?

The Affable Raffarin, the supposed rightist French Prime, has been threatening the employers (calling them "bosses" actually - maybe a hint to the far left? Anyway...) while interviewed on the French channel TF1.

Stating that "some" employers were "taking advantage of the international economical crisis to fire their employees", the Affable Raffarin announced that the government is, once again, going to meddle in what's definitely not its business "engaged several preliminary investigations" and that "some employers will have to face the government".

"Taking advantage of the international economical crisis to fire their employees". I'm not making that up. I translated it literally.

We were told that the Affable Raffarin ran his own business a few years ago. We were somehow expecting (we bloody fools) that he would know a bit more about that than the usual gang of Professional Civil Servants who learned to rule countries at the ENA.

Maybe it's also worth mentioning that this guy was supposedly a "classical liberal" before he joined Mr. Chirac's (supposedly rightist) Unique Party and got commissioned.

Meanwhile, "some" employers are starting to pay the price for Jacques "de Gaulle Junior" Chirac and the Affable Raffarin's Happy Circus' policy.
Let me put that straight: the British Prime is not to blame and Thales, the French company who, at first, won the contract is not either (in fact, "(it) is said to have produced by far the best design").

From their point of view, Mr. Chirac and Mr. Affable Raffarin aren't to blame neither. They just got themselves another occasion to bop those bosses bastards who "take advantage of the international economical crisis to fire their employees".

French politics' best interests actually.

So what comes next? Joining Le Pen, Laguillier, the Mamère Gang, the Crestfallen Socialists United and the trade unions in the cesspool to bash together the only economic system which proved its adequacy to create prosperity for the masses? (Yep, it is a smart way to write "Capitalism" while filling the page a bit more).

Article copy (alternate language)

L'Affable Raffarin, Premier ministre supposé de droite, a menacé les employeurs (qu'il appelle "les patrons" - un signe de reconnaissance avec l'extrême gauche ? Bref...) lors d'une interview sur la chaîne française TF1.

Affirmant que "certains" employeurs "profitent de la crise internationale pour licencier", l'Affable Raffarin a annoncé que le gouvernement va une fois de plus se mêler de ce qui ne le regarde pas avait "engagé un certain nombre d'enquêtes préliminaires" et que "certains" employeurs "auront affaire au gouvernement".

"profitent de la crise internationale pour licencier". Je n'invente rien.

On nous avait dit que l'Affable Raffarin avait mené sa propre affaire il y a quelques années. On s'attendait plus ou moins (fous que nous sommes) à ce qu'il ait un peu plus de bon sens en la matière que l'habituelle bande de Fonctionnaires Professionnels qui ont appris à gouverner des pays à l'ENA.

Il peut être utile aussi de préciser que ce type était censé être un "libéral" (au sens Européen du terme) avant de rejoindre le Parti Unique et (supposé de droite) de M. Chirac et de prendre ses fonctions.

Pendant ce temps, "certains patrons" commencent à payer le prix de la politique de Jacques "de Gaulle Junior" Chirac et du Joyeux Cirque de l'Affable Raffarin.
Juste pour préciser le fond de ma pensée : le Premier ministre britannique n'est pas à blâmer et Thales, l'entreprise française qui avait remporté ce marché ne l'est pas non plus (en fait, "le design qu'elle a produit est réputé être le meilleur et de loin").

De leur point de vue, M. Chirac et M. Affable Raffarin ne sont pas à blâmer non plus. Ils viennent simplement de se doter d'une nouvelle occasion de taper sur ces salauds de patrons qui "profitent de la crise internationale pour licencier".

L'intérêt général de la classe politique française en quelque sorte.

Alors quoi ensuite? Se joindre à Le Pen, Laguillier, la Bande à Mamère, les Socialistes Déconfits Associés et tous les syndicats dans la fosse d'aisance pour cogner tous ensemble sur le seul système économique qui ait prouvé sa capacité à générer la prospérité du plus grand nombre ? (oui, c'est une habile manière de dire "Capitalisme" en remplissant un peu plus la page).
