Arc de Triomphe

Stretching from Paris to Athens.

Bring on investment for growth, by no means only in France. It is working in America. Yet Europe is still mired in the failed neoliberalism of a bygone age.

But Syrizia looks to have equalled or even beaten PASOK, which is like the ever-elusive coalition of all the Hard and Far Left in Britain equalling even beating Labour.

The Independent Greeks, the anti-austerity breakaway from the right-wing New Democracy, have also done well, it seems.

What with that in Greece and this in France, a new age is beginning. The tragedy is that Britain, having signalled on Thursday her strong desire to participate in it, will not be able to do so until 2015.

It is already happening in America. But we can't have any of it for another three years, despite having a Prime Minister whose party got only 32 per cent of the vote.
