Now a new presidency begins with the "normal" Hollande. He is not very charismatic, but many of his rivals, or ex-rivals (once president, one certainly has many friends), say that they underestimated him. I'm not against a normal president anyway. It will change. We don't need to see him everytime and everywhere. I don't think he is going to change our lives, nor that he is going to solve all the problems France and Europe face. Presidents, even though they have a lot of power in France, are no magicians. People often believe that a new president is a wizard and can do whatever he wants. They end up disappointed, and then vote for far-right or far-left parties, although they know that the proposals of those parties are utopic.
The real question is: will Hollande be able to do what he wants with the crisis?
Even if I'm against austerity, some of the spendings he proposes don't seem wise to me. I'm not an economist though, and even economists don't agree on those subjects.
The next election is in a month. We will vote to elect the numerous deputies, 577 to be exact, who will sleep (when they're not absent) on the benches of the Parliament. Too bad that he doesn't want to cut their number. :/
Little question: when one says "someone" or "one", is it then better to say "they" or "he or she"? Like in the following sentence: "if someone has a question, they (or "he or she") can ask me". Which one is more formal, and which one is more used?
Thanks for reading! :)

We got rid of the little thug at last. I'm relieved because, like a lot of French, I was fed up with him and his government. His defeat was predicted since months, if not years, but despite having all the odds against him, it is far from being overwhelming. Hollande said once that if Sarkozy was a ba
