Unemployment is over three million and there is no prospect of an economic recovery. Only 40 per cent of French people are in work of any kind, as against 60 per cent of Swiss. More days are lost through industrial action than in any other EU state: 27 days per thousand people per year, as opposed to 3.4 days in Germany. The French state last ran a surplus in 1974. The money has run out.
