L'exception française

Once again I am grateful for the hyperactive polling of Gauls undertaken by French newspapers and so on, in this case Le Figaro for quizzing them on 'the financial crisis'.

Asked if the current difficulties for banks etc will lead to a grave economic crisis, the pollees see trouble for their Uncle Sam - 94% and the EU overall - 82%, but a little else for France itself - 80%. Maybe someone ought to tell them about globalisation, which does include French overseas investment...

Curiously, the extreme left is the least convinced that the Americans are in trouble (88%) to the next lowest of 92% for Bayrou voters. I would have thought that they would all be jumping up and down hailing the final crisis of capitalism and Marx's historical materialism being 'right'. Certainly our own dear SWP seems quite upbeat in its usual way - google them, I 'm not linking on principal. Le Pen's lot are the most given to pessimism about France (95%), but then they are all for a siege economy anyway.
