A Striking Figure

From Charles Bremner:

More than eight out of 10 of this year's intake at the National School for Judges (Ecole Nationale de la Magistrature) are women. Men represent only 23 percent of the whole student body at the Bordeaux-based institution which trains all French trial judges, investigating magistrates, prosecutors and so on.

On reading this I'm tempted to conclude that (1) perhaps the world doesn't need so many journalists; and/or (2) lazy neoliberal clichés equating the "real world" with the world of le business seem to won favor with editors at the BBC.

The headline is quite cringe-inducing.

Good grief, I meant to post that comment to "A British View of Le Mal Français" (not to this Bremner piece, which is quite interesting).

Apologies for the misplaced comment!
