Hollande Survives Confidence Vote As France Slides Deeper Into Chaos

French President Francois Hollande suvived a 'no - confidence' vote today but now faces deepening divisions within his own party as well as in the French population.  Continuing mass protests by students and trade union members showed the battle of over his reforms to the country's labour laws are far from finished. Hollande has hardened opposition to his reforms after bypassing the French parliament to push them through.

France has been paralyzed by a series of nationwide strikes – particularly by students – against French

The President (le petit crapaud) proposed reforms to the highly complex French labour laws – known as the Code du Travail – in order to give employers more flexibility.

The no-confidence motion proposed by conservatives in the lower house of the French Parliament fell 42 votes short of the 288 required for victory, but with twenty four members of Hollande's socialist party voting against him, he will take no comfort having survived the attempt to unseat him. The outcome will further deepen divisions within the socialists.

Holland now has to decide what disciplinary action he is going to take against the rebels within his party – including former ministers Benoit Hamon or Aurelie Filippetti.

 The labour reforms were largely directed at making companies take on more workers on permanent contracts, rather than temporary ones, a trend caused by European Union labour laws which make it almost impossible to fire an unsatisfactory worker. by pushing the laws through Hollande also hoped to bring down the unemployment rate from ten percent. The proposals would grant employers more flexibility to lay-off workers and and allow employees to work far longer than the current 35-hour week, and thus swell their pay packets through overtime pay.  France's 35-Hour Week Under Threat as Presidential Hopefuls Signal Change

Other reforms include a cap on severance pay for workers dismissed by a company. The current cost of sacking workers mean that companies are risk-averse to doing so, leaving them less flexible and – in some cases – less productive. Employers are also more likely to contract out work to non EU nations such as Algeria, India, Vietnam and Indonesia. Opponents say the reforms would undermine workers’ rights on pay, overtime and breaks.

Any reforms to French law would normally have to pass to the upper house of the French Parliament, where the Republicans have a majority, paving the way for a political ping-pong match, but Hollande's Prime Minister Manuel Valls has won cabinet approval to invoke the rarely-used Article 49.3 of the constitution which allows the reform bill to bypass parliament.

This immediately brought protest from opponents who accused Hollande of behaving like a socialist dictator caused riots in Paris, Nantes and Bordeaux. Hollande is set to face further strikes and protests in what is becoming a major stand off between government and people.

EU Turkey Migrant Deal Set To Fail

Blackmailer and extortionist ,
gangster terrorism facilitator President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was turning the screws on the EU last night as resistance grew to his latest blackmail scam, to gain visa free access to the EU for Turkish citizens in return for help with controlling the flow od illegal immigrants. Previously Erdogan has obtained €billions in hard cash, political concessions and indulgences of his illegal oil for arms trade with ISIS in return for help, which has simply not been forthcoming, in controlling the flow of migrants into Europe.

Erdogan failed to agree with European leaders over the latest migrant deal on Thursday, accusing the bloc of setting new hurdles for visa-free travel and threatening Ankara would flood Europe with migrants if the EU did not yield to all his demands (which get more outrageous which every concession he gets, isn't that just typical behaviour from blackmailing gangsters? .

In Berlin, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also dug in his heels, saying the agreement would collapse unless Ankara fulfilled its commitments, including making agreed changes to its anti-terror law. As Turkish anti terror laws stand, any criticism of the Erdogan regime or support for his opponents is treated as terrorism. The stand-off has put the agreement in doubt. Brussels is desperate for it to succeed, but insists Turkey meets 72 criteria, including narrowing its legal definition of terrorism.

The EU, Kurdish independence campaigners and various human rights groups have accused Turkey of using its broad anti-terrorism laws to stifle dissent while Ankara says the laws are necessary to battle Kurdish militants at home and Islamic State in neighbouring Iraq and Syria.

“We had finished the issue of visa free travel with EU, we had inked the deal, then they came up with these 72 criteria and included the counter-terror laws in it,” Erdogan said. Telling Turkey to soften its counter-terrorism laws was tantamount to asking it to give up its struggle against terrorism, he said in a speech. "Either we will improve our relations with the EU, or we will set a new path for ourselves. We prefer to build the new Turkey with our EU friends, but now we will wait for the decision of our EU friends."

The EU negotiators showed no signs of giving ground. Jucker said, "We put great value in the conditions being met. Otherwise this deal, the agreement between the EU and Turkey, won’t happen. If Mr Erdogan decides to deny Turks the right to free travel to Europe, then he must explain this to the Turkish people. It will not be my problem, it will be his problem."

All one needs to understand about Erdogan and the Islamic Turks is the Armenian genocide of 1915. 1.5 million people killed because they were not Muslim. That is Europe's future if Erdogan is given the keys to Europe's migration of Muslims. Pro - Turkey and pro - globalism voiced may say it happened a hundred years ago, but even as I type, Erdogan's criminal regime are carrying on a genocidal campagin against the Kurds, not only in Turkish territory but in Kursish areas of Iraq and Syria too. Erdogan has used the conflict in Syria and the war with ISIS as a mask to conceal his efforts to complete the genocide of the Kurds.

The EU position is not without hypocrisy however, Jean - Claude drunkard & Co. ask Turkey to do away with laws designed to stifle free speech when new laws are being imposed on the European democracies that criminalise any questioning or criticism of the holocaust narrative, climate change, EU 'open borders' immigration policy and Islamic extremism. Domestic politicians in Europe should be resisting this fast track to fascism the EU ruling bureaucracy is taking, but most of them have sold out to the corporate - financial cartel that is driving a move to global totalitarian government. We only have the anti EU parties like UKIP, Front National, AfD, Danish Peoples' party and Sweden Democrats and a few leaders like Hungary's Viktor Orban to fight for freedom and national sovereignty and freedom. Flooding Europe and north American with third world immigrants in order to bring about collapse of the social orders to do just that here with respect to telling it like it is about the activities of third world freeloaders?


Migrants Consider Quitting Violent Sweden To Return To War-Zone Homelands For Safety

The Swedish ruling elite's politically correct obsession with immigrants has turned parts of this once peaceful, civilised and safe country into a lawless hell hole and borderline failed state. Perhaps the clearest indication of how bad things are in Sweden now is the news that Sweden is now so dystopian even migrants from some of the most violent and chaotic areas of Africa and the middle east want to return to their homelands

No Easy Answers For Immigration
The most sensible immigration policy is one that matches demand for labour with supply. While ensuring compassion and capacity for genuine refugees, we should take care that new arrivals looking for 'a better life' do not land in such numbers they become a burden on those that host them.
