It was about time, no?

BBC NEWS | Europe | France to replace youth job law:

"French President Jacques Chirac has announced that the new youth employment law that sparked weeks of sometimes violent protests will be scrapped.

He said it would be replaced by other measures to tackle youth unemployment.

Millions of students and union members have taken to the streets over the last month in protest against the law, which made it easier to fire young workers.

Union and student leaders said it was a 'great victory' but it is not clear if protests set for Tuesday are still on."

  • I believe that it is French fabulist named... La Fontaine, who said "Rien ne sert de courrir, il faut partir a point". Villepin wanted to run, without proper preparation. Sometimes it is better to start-over, on firmer ground, and with more reasonable goals.
