Sarkozy orders his Ministers to seek extra cuts - here's a Whopper

A hugely expensive fast train line will start to be cut across the french countryside between Tours and Bordeaux any day now. A perfectly good line already exists. The new one will shave mere minutes off the total journey time to Paris, presumably allowing fonctionaires and eurocrats longer luncheons. Billions will be spent for zero return.

Eventually this line was to connect to Madrid and even Lisbon, but the cash strapped Iberians are already backtracking.

Scrap the Tours/Bordeaux LGV NOW, and save billions of euros!
