French Socialists Perform an About-Face on Taxes

Via Will Collier on Twitter, comes news so shocking that we have to read about it in the British press:

Francois Hollande lurches Right in historic U-Turn to save French economy

French president François Hollande has bowed to massive pressure for business tax cuts to pull France’s economy out of slump and stave off industrial decline, ditching a core element of his socialist platform.

Hollande, unlike certain other presidents I won't name, seems able to learn from his failures.

A quick search of America's "newspaper of record" shows... nada.

And do please enjoy the free British press while there still is one.
