I am sort of confused as to the objective that you want to achieve with this thread, Olly.
Your opening post was sneering and provocative, and you got a response.
I pointed out that your link was nearly five years old, and that your initial joy at such a large contract may be a bit premature.
Now, apart from trying to pick a fight about which country has the biggest penis, what do you expect from responders on this thread?
If you want some stats demonstrating how France is currently the 'sick man of Europe", you can find tons of current stuff on google.
Or do you just want us to get our patriotic dicks out?
Tssk....you French Canadians are all the same.
