Please could you explain further what has France politics to do with Quebec separatism, except for De Gaulle's "vive le Quebec libre"? (yes, it's him
who said that).
Sarkozy is at best a populist liar. Well, this definition suits about every politician, but Sarkozy made it his favourite sport, he made it so
In reality he did (he is now out of French politics, at least for now) not give a damn about the Bsaque region & its people, he was just caressing
them to get more votes.
ETA (Basque sepratists) want to talk to the French government. No way!!! France is one and cannot be divided, Basque region is French (north of the
Pyrenees mountains) and that's it!
And De Gaulle & Sarkozy have very little in common, probably only the fact that they have been the President of France.
I honestly find your post misplaced, it does not bring anything to this debate.
I think I now understand why you wrote your post: because Quebec separatist play the French card, and you want to show how separatism is handled in
