Just read last night the statements coming out of France about the Hollande government and the prospects for private companies in view of what the Socialists in their legislature are doing to the country. On the other hand, they will have to give support to Alcatel/Lucent through their ownership of the French telephone companies and whatever influence they can further put on the American telecom industry. The only alternative as I have said is the Nationalization of ALU by the French and USA. I would vote on the side of the governments pre-empting the latter prospect by them putting pressure on their respective telecom industries. So hopefully Hollande's programs and recession in Europe won't kill off Alu.
