with the french voting for a new leader today, and the expecting change according to the polls of Francois Hollande winning, what impact will it have on the rest of europe?

will it be a kick in the arse for europe and the euro? how will the markets react with his promises of spend, spend, spend and higher taxes for the rich?

could it have an impact on our economy with the french rich hopping over the channel to blighty to invest, as well as the euro will most likely take a knock and get a better exchange rate for holidays in the euroland?

never join the euro as it will be finishing in the next few years as countries elect the left wing idiots who dont believe in debt management ....

the markets opened this morning and took a heavy hit all round thanks to the french and greece elections ... not the euro is worth 1.24 to the pound, most smart europeans have already moved their money into sterling as to think not that long ago the euro and pound were almost equal ....
