Games Morale Boost For French

Philippe Baudillon, the leader of Paris's bid for the 2012 Olympics, is reported to have said that France needs the games to boost morale; after the French rejected of the EU constitution.


"If Paris gets the games, it will be a fantastic moment for France to imagine the future very positively, and we need that,".


"The people who said 'no' are frightened by the future...Getting the games would be a very positive moment for the country."

What utter nonsense.

The French rejected the EU constitution because their economy has been wrecked by the straight jacket of the Euro, and by the restrictive labour laws imposed by their own government.

Winning the Olympics will only put further strains on their already recession bound economy.
