Apparently Sarkozy wins

French presidential front-runner Nicolas Sarkozy outlined his stance on key foreign policy issues Thursday, saying he might pull France's troops out of a NATO force in Afghanistan if he is elected.

"The long-term presence of French troops in that part of the world does not look definitive to me," he said in an interview with France-2 television.
French withdrawal could cause the domino effect. Likely the Spaniards would follow French example.

Surely you can interpret that as "Sarkozy stated that he will agree to anything as long as they vote for him and not Segolene 'The Milf' Royal"?

I hope Royal wins so that I can watch the whole bloody country go straight down the bleedin' plug 'ole. Lets face it, who needs a vibrant, dynamic,economically successful France on their doorstep, not us! :wink:

Apart from that it'd be a usefull reminder to the significant number of wistful Lefties still kicking around in the UK of what a waste of time and effort Socialism is! :roll:
