    It looks like there is still some hope for Europe.

    Well, the whole thing is complicated. First, if Europe is in this mess, it is because there are too much speculation aka derivatives, etc on the sovereign debts. Yesterday France lost the AAA to AA, so again money borrowed to the financial private sector will cost more and will put heavy pressure on the country. Then you have all the guys betting against Europe who are the ones called to fix the problems, it is like asking an arsonist to become a firefighter....On the other hand, all socialists are applying right wing policies, so that's why we call them UMPS, because there is a slight difference between them.

    Anyway, this year is the European election, and I guess many socialists are going to lose some seats and perhaps some right wing aligned on the socialist policies in the European parliament.

    We will see if Nigel Farage and Nicolas Dupont-Aignan were right about the coming European storm.

    Anti-Tax Revolt Spreads in France

    French riot police fired tear gas at hundreds of anti-tax demonstrators in northwest France on Saturday after protesters pelted them and tried to drive a tractor through a barricade, an AFP photographer said. One demonstrator was arrested in Jugon-les-Lacs, a commune in the Cotes-d'Armor region where some 700 people had gathered earlier in the day.

    A security camera was torched and some protesters pelted police, who responded with tear gas.
    Demonstrators chanted slogans against France's Socialist government, which earlier this month suspended the application of the so-called ecotax.
    "People struggle to pay their bills at the end of the month, and now we're going to ecotax them" said one protester, pretending to strangle himself.
    There were more anti-tax protesters elsewhere in Brittany and also around the country, including near the major cities of Lyon and Marseille, and in the capital Paris.
    The ecotax, aimed at encouraging environmentally friendly commercial transport, imposes new levies on French and foreign vehicles transporting commercial goods weighing over 3.5 tonnes.
    It has came under fire from farmers and food sector workers across the country, but especially in Brittany, where the economy is heavily dependent on agriculture.
    Faced with the unrest, the government decided to suspend the new levy at the end of last month. Then on Friday, it announced more than one billion euros in emergency funds for Brittany, among other measures.
    But protesters are still not pacified and a large scale rally is planned for November 30.

    The ecotax is a scam, period!

    Farmers in Brittany have joined growing protests against President Hollande's plan to restore public finances by raising taxes.

    The farmers are unhappy about a "green tax" on the heavy goods vehicles used to transport their produce from farm to buyer.

    Over successive weekends the protests have led to violence, with signs that the unrest is spreading further across France.

    France to borrow 4.5 billion euros by end-2013 to pay Credit Lyonnais debts

    PARIS (Reuters) - France will borrow 4.5 billion euros ($6.0 billion) by the end of the year to settle debts from the collapse of the Credit Lyonnais bank, French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said on Sunday.


    France will borrow 4.5 billion euros ($6.0 billion) by the end of the year to settle debts from the collapse of the Credit Lyonnais bank, French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said on Sunday.The state has until the end of 2014 to settle the bank's remaining debts, but decided to take action this year, a ministry official said.
    Moscovici said he would present a bill on Wednesday updating the 2013 budget that would include authorization for the new debt to be issued.
    "Why? Because we currently have exceptional borrowing conditions," Moscovici said on France 5 television. "We've got to put this behind us."
    Taxpayers were left on the hook when the formerly state-owned lender had to be bailed out in the mid 1990s after losing billions of francs. The French bank Credit Agricole <CAGR.PA> took over Credit Lyonnais in 2003.
    With its 10-year benchmark bond yields at 2.2 percent, France can currently borrow at close to all-time lows, even though Standard & Poor's trimmed its credit rating on Friday to AA from AA+.
    The newspaper Le Parisien, which first reported the debt issue, said Credit Lyonnais's collapse will have cost French taxpayers a total of 14.7 billion euros since 1993.

    Again so much money for the banks and austerity for the people, we should thank the socialists for their great imagination on the new taxes. These people aren't for the middle class, they use the middle class to be elected to better betray them once in power. It has been always this way, perhaps today they can't denied it because it is so much apparent.Thundery elections are coming. Time to hit the road guys

    French truck drivers block roads in tax protest

    There was severe disruption to traffic across France Saturday as thousands of truck drivers blocked roads for the second time in a month in the latest protest against government plans to introduce an environmental tax on heavy goods vehicles.

    Thousands of truck drivers blocked roads across France on Saturday for the second time in a month as part of protests over government plans to introduce a new tax on heavy goods vehicles.
    Vehicles lined motorways, driving slowly and clogging up traffic, with reports of significant disruption all over the country, from the Paris region to Bordeaux and Aix-en-Provence in the south.
    The French interior ministry estimated 2,200 trucks were involved in the protest, while organisers put the figure at 4,500.
    On the main highways, truck drivers let cars through but blocked foreign trucks, forcing them to stand idle on the side of the road.
    Two weeks ago around the same number of trucks blockaded roads and caused hours of traffic delays.
    The blockades are part of efforts by agricultural and road transport workers to force the French government to scrap its plans to introduce a so-called “ecotax” -- a levy on French and foreign vehicles transporting commercial goods weighing over 3.5 tonnes.
    In reaction to protests against the tax, the French government has already suspended its implementation, originally scheduled for January 1, but protesters said they would not give up until the tax was scrapped altogether.
    “Until this measure is cancelled, we will remain mobilised,” said Vincent Tardet from the European Rail Transport Organisation (OTRE), which set up some 26 blockades on France’s main road arteries.
    The tax has been particularly unpopular in the Brittany region in northeastern France, where critics say it would seriously damage the region’s precarious farming and food sectors by increasing transportation costs.
    Last month, police fired tear gas and rubber bullets during violent clashes with demonstrators, including farmers, business owners and truck drivers, in the Finistère department in west Brittany.

    More tax protests, and more actions. Is the French government listening?
