The first "Debate" by the 5 major Presidential Candidates, which lasted 3 hours and 30 minutes, was televised last Monday evening !
All the Candidates seized the chance to reveal the changes they would introduce if they were elected as the President of France on May 7, 2017 ! It was like an auction ! Who could promise the most ?
They were in fact, hollow promises, which were not backed-up by an explanation of how the funds would be obtained, to pay for the cost of the promises !
France has serious problems to solve ! Financially it is bankrupt, but it must quickly solve,
- Rising Pension costs,
- Rising Immigration,
- National Debt costs,
- National Insecurity (Terrorism and soft Justice).
What is needed is a Debate in which each Candidate, is obliged to explain how the above problems (and others), will be solved and financed, and especially the cost of any new Election Promises !
The responsibility for this now lies with the Organisers of the next Debates. The financial future of France is already bleak but could get worse !
This also means the Financial problems of France must be tacled NOW....and.... no Candidate should be allowed to Hoodwink Electors, by omitting to explain how he intends to solve this National Financial Crisis !
