Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I will add that in this case, France seemedc to me to be completely alone in the european landscape to ask for an end to austerity. This may be due to my lack of knowledge of local politics in other countries, but I am under the impression that every european country, including those suffering from austerity, embraced the austerian policies with a rather enthusiastic behavior.

Even in France, a lot of people are actually complaining that the policies implemented by Hollande are not austerian enough. I know for sure that some of my former colleagues would vote in favor of a cut in public servant salaries for example...
