Re: Well I personally think it is a good idea....

Uncle Slack,

France is way more socialist than the UK. You're forgetting President Hollande by the way, who was from the Socialist Party. Sadly for them, they can't forget him - they got 7% in the last national election.

You forget that a French right winger is to the left of most UK centrists. Britain has been politically to the right of most European countries for a long time - though Europe in general has moved a bit rightward since Thatcher's time.

It's a bit like the USA, where most democrats would traditionally have fit happily in the Conservative Party and been too right wing for Labour. Though the Democrats have moved a bit left in the last decade and the Republicans have gone way off to the right.
