Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite... et chantage

I refrained from commenting on the French riots because I didn't have anything to add to what was being said by everyone else. But this I can't ignore: Jean Lassalle, a French MP has just ended a 39 day hunger strike that sought to prevent a Japanese company from closing down a paint factory within his constituency. The company has agreed to keep the factory open after meeting with Sarko.

Personally I think they should have let him starve to death. What hope is there for any sort of reform in France? The people who are willing to behave in the most childish manner consistently get their way.
