I may not be French, but I find this headline highly offensive:

Getting the French to Work

and the implication highly inaccurate.

Yeah, it's a funny article isn't it. Visual contrasts of 'clean, sharp and smiling' Lagarde with the red-clad, slacker strike-man slouching along dragging on his ciggie. When capitalism goes bad... who's to blame? The workers! And what's the cure? More capitalism! But this is nothing new.

What I can't understand is how anyone can take anything Sarkozy says seriously. A France of early risers? I guess at his age with his wife - 'early rising' is a concern - but surely Viagra would be the cure. What have workers got to do with his problem?

Though, it is a funny headline. I can understand why the sub-editor went for it.
