“The French are a peculiar people”

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, 20.10.2010: The international papers don’t understand the scope of French protests against retirement reform, it seems. Der Tagessiegel in Germany thinks the French are a “peculiar lot”, given that the retirement age in Germany has already been raised to 67 some time ago.
