10 reasons why France is not ‘turning into a tragedy’

The French embassy in London decided this week it could not take the latest round of “French-bashing” from the Anglo media lying down. Responding to an article (SEE LINK BELOW) that labelled France as a “failed socialist experiment’ that is ‘turning into a tragedy”, French diplomats in London felt they had to set the record straight. In an article posted on its website the embassy gave ten reasons why the future in France is bright and why criticism of the country is not just, especially when compared to the state of infrastructure in the UK like the “ailing” NHS. Here The Local presents the embassy’s argument in their own words for why France, essentially is a great place to live and work. How many of their points do you agree with?
