"Buy French!"

Readers of a certain age will remember the "Buy British!" campaigns of the 1960s. Sarko, speaking to mayors yesterday, recommended a policy of "Buy French! Buy local!" and cost-be-damned if that's what it takes to do your patriotic duty. Ceteris Paribus puts it well:

Ca fait déjà un bout de temps que je me dis, en rigolant, "vivement que la gauche revienne au pouvoir, qu'on puisse avoir une politique économique un peu libérale". Aujourd'hui, je ne rigole plus.

readers of a certain age will remember the buy French campaign of the communist party in the mid seventies. As with Guy Mocquet, this is yet another provocation aimed directly at the core of the old left.
