Hoist by their own petard

The BBC reports Strikes weaken French economy. Who could not see this one coming long ago?
Analysts said French companies' performance had stalled amid weak global growth, with mass strikes last month in protest against government proposals for pension reform putting businesses under further pressure.

Between the strikes, the antagonistic attitude towards America (leading to a fall in both tourism and exports) and the general crappyness of the French leadership … It is a wonder that France is not yet in full blown recession.

I actually do not want France to completely fail economically. After all, there are some nice people there. That said, I would not mind seeing things get really, really bad for those who think that the French status quo is a good thing.

Here is hoping that the French status quo will break down soon!
