FIGAROVOX/MOOD – The French State could buy 16 train sets of the TGV, which does not roll not high speed. For Eric Verhaghe, this absurd decision mask the responsibility of the tenders of the european in the matter of public order.

Most notably he was director of the social security. His latest book, Does not help you and the State will help you, is published on 25 January last in the editions of the Rock.

Fun! It seems that, in order to avoid the workers of Alstom in Belfort moved into a factory in alsace (that is, less than two kilometers), the State is going to order 16 trains TGV to 500 million euros entirely useless (as they will be riding not on a high-speed line) and fully paid for by the taxpayer (as I had announced, by the way). And here are the providers of the SNCF saved by a compulsory contribution imposed on customers of the carrier!
Who concocted this decision totally suicidal for the French economy ?
Who concocted this decision totally suicidal for the French economy? The group of eurolâtres colonizing power in explaining us day after day that there is no alternative to Europe, as Europe, the prosperity, and the future of France must necessarily pass through Europe.
Nothing is more fun than this homily daily in favor of the new god european who provides for all, from our birth to our death, and who makes up our horizon indépassable. But none of the eurolâtres takes care to specify that all the problems encountered by Alstom today is mainly due to the procedures of public procurement imposed by this famous european Union of which we are told as well.
The idea of closing Alstom in Belfort came after a european call for tenders launched by Akiem, a subsidiary of the SNCF, who preferred locomotive German locomotive French.
let us Recall that the idea to close Alstom in Belfort is coming immediately after the results of a european call for tenders launched by Akiem, a subsidiary of the SNCF, who preferred locomotive German locomotive French. This is the game of the single european market, that our eurolâtres spend wisely over in silence: all public procurement above a certain amount must be the subject of a european call for tenders transparent.
And this is how the religion of the construction of the community is in conflict with the religion of the “It is necessary to save jobs in France“.
moreover, it is looked forward to all those great defenders of Europe, european people, european awareness, to come and explain to the workers of Alstom (and French public opinion) that, if one closes their plant, it is because another factory in the european nation has won the market. And that he should therefore rejoice, we who are europeans, this procedure which leads to producing in the european entity called Germany what is produced in the european entity called France.
Undoubtedly, France has to violate the treaties by granting State aid to Alstom.
on The way, Valls and consors, which we will highlight a great poem within on the benefits of Europe, will soon have to justify to the european Commission that the French State comes, outside any regulatory procedure, to make a purchase of 500 million euros. This kind of command, we repeat, assumes a european call for tenders.
Undoubtedly, France has to violate the treaties by granting State aid to Alstom. The string is so big that it should not last long, and that it is an amateurism policy confusing.
One can think what one wants of the community law, and all the tra-la-la that surrounds it, the attitude duplice the French government is no less confusing.
In a democracy is normal, a government that claims to revive Europe after the Brexit should explain to the French unions that the construction of the community no longer allows the national preference in public purchases. And he should take his choice europhile public opinion. This franchise inform the French about what it really means to be european today.
If the French government continues to play the “national preference” in its orders, it thus proves that it is not fulfilling its european commitments, and he must explain them clearly.
in the Face of this transparency requirement, our elected representatives, once again, prefer to lie and spare the goat and the cabbage. And one is astonished, after that, the discredit, which is hitting the policy.
