Germany must help new French President Emmanuel Macron to succeed, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday, saying she hoped he manages to fight unemployment in France and adding that the best way to counter populists was to solve problems.

    the French do prefer their cheese moderately aged

      DAMMIT, I just ate, now I gotta do it over again if I can get that out of my mind.

  • Spatchcocked

    Yes……Mais oui…. a large slab or wheel of ripe Limburger c’est formidable !
    One savours the stink (oh la la!) or one installs it in ones underpants for to excite the sexual sense…..
    Ohhhh….I am having a what you call a frisson !

    “the best way to counter populists is to solve problems”
    Like dumping the “refugees” you single-handedly invited on member states that _didn’t_ invite them, then using “qualified majority voting” to crush the small states and force _your_ problems down _their_ throats.
    And then have the chutzpah to call it “problem solving”—others would call it extortion, coercion, and treason.

    Clearly, Angela is too young for Emmanuel.

    Yes, Merkel may appear ‘pretty’ to Macron, but the truth be told; isn’t she just a bit TOO young for him?

  • I’m sure Merkel will. She’s done so well so far.

    Macron has a new mommy who is in charge of his country, or should I say the country he rejected.

  • Spatchcocked

    Macron got 46 percent of the vote.
    54 percent were for Marine or were spoiled or were Abstentions.

    I see he wants to bust the unions……and other wholesome lackey of the banks and industrialists stuff…I see barricades…….a lot of croissant tossing.

    The frogs are excitable chaps….I reckon the weather in France will be hot this summer and fall.

    With Macron’s (energy?) minister wanting to shut down all of France’s nuke power plants (Fukushima!!1!1!), she’ll be able to sell German brown-coal-powered electricity to France instead of the other way around that it’s been for a couple of decades. That’ll help.

      If France shuts down their nukes all of Europe will be screwed. France’s nukes power all their virtue signalling neighbours’ economies.

    There is something really creepy about that guy and his mommy wife. But then he is French.
