@nito No doubt you're correct. From a French perspective, the problem with the British economy is it also seems exremely sensitive to conjunctures, which explains those rather spectacular and raw changes in the UK from time to time. Nowadays, most the French usually hate that. It makes them feel unsecured. They like things to be balanced and stable. That's an issue in times of global growth because it tends to slow down our own. Unlike the UK's, France's economy's not reactive enough to a positive environment. On the other hand, the French weren't so troubled when you guys were struggling for the crisis.

I wouldn't praise any French model anyway, because I think it's too static, generally both too rigid and too slow and mainly serving a certain establishment over here. But the fact is most in France were still at a relative peace when you guys in Britain were in pain. Now, the struggle is coming to France indeed.
