we like it here
Whither France? John Kay keeps it simple.

France is a different country, and when the French voted strongly for socialists last weekend they expressed dissatisfaction with the country's economic performance but greater dissatisfaction with the efforts of Jean-Pierre Raffarin, the prime minister, to change it. They like things as they are. So do I: that is why I am here.

I wonder how we'd vote if we actually had the option to create a country which half of its people didn't want to leave?
