French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Sunday he wanted the EU to introduce a "Buy European Act" based on a US law that obliges the state to use domestically-produced products in public contracts.

"I solemnly ask the question why should Europe deny itself that which the United States, the most (economically) liberal country in the world, allows itself," he said at an election rally.

Mmm. What next? Swedish sticky rice? British bananas? Danish durian?  :o

You took the words right out of my mouth Toddy and I'm sure he's probably got a few more wonderful ideas to spout before the actual election ::)
If at first you don't succeed you are clearly not cut out for it. Give up and move on.
