French President Francois Hollande,again today showed why he is a lightweight at a time when his country is in need of a real leader.
The French economy is in free fall, with record high unemployment (25%) and a shocking deterioration of competitiveness. But instead of addressing these urgent real problems, Hollande today found time for grandstanding at one of the many useless international gatherings, where "world leaders" give empty speeches about "renewable energy" and "global warming" (This time the event, which was sponsored by Abu Dhabi oil money, was called "The World Future Energy Summit").
This was Hollande's message:
"If we do not act ... you can be very sure we will have a catastrophe very soon," he said.
