Austerity kicked into touch?

With François Hollande about to take power here in France then, and the radical left trying to form a government in Greece - is this the end for pan-European austerity? We also look at the upcoming parliamentary elections - and the possible collapse of the UMP.

Liberation says François Hollande should take credit for opposing austerity policy across the continent - and he's about to be proved right.

Communist paper l'Humanité says austerity has finally had its day - and le Parisien says it begins at home, where Hollande has promised to cut his own salary - and that of France's highest paid public sector CEOs.
