France to Leave Schengen Countries?

Pres Sarkozy during his re-election campaign has threatened to take France out of the Schengen Agreement countries due to lack border controls in some Schengen countries. Other countries apparently are considering the same. Is the Schengen Accords breaking up and travelers will once again be subject to border controls at borders?

Ah things do go around - the Euro zone may be breaking up as well.

MARTIANS to land on earth.
After yestreday, the president officially confimed that contact with Martians has been established as early as 1947 in Roswell,NM a Martian delegation will be welcomed tomorrow in Washington,DC.
"Talks on issues like alien immigration, border controls and a new common currency for Mars and Earth will take place", quoting usually extremely well informed sources.

France did close its borders with Italy last year for a weekend, but no this is just the little man trying to get re-elected.

Now the Euro zone is another thing, I see that Spain has already broken the latest rules (that were to replace the last rules that were not to be broken after they broke the original rules......). Let's face Germany would be in serious trouble if it ever left the bunch of no-hopers in the south.

Why would you believe someone says in an election statement? Do you believe everything that American politicians say?

Malheureusement le petit Nicolas is aiming at his far right possible electors.
