The sitting French President appears to have suddenly started to hear his voters in abruptly reversing direction over growth versus austerity and French interests in respect of German domination as reported in the Daily Telegraph
this morning. This time next week the first round of the Presidential election in France will be over and the name of the two contenders for the second round will be known.

Latest polling is here
In another article, in the same newspaper Devon, is revealed as having valuable tungsten reserves
in a presently abandoned mine near Plympton. An expensive new road to the mine has been under construction for some time by thge local authority so development seems assured!
