    The new currency is going to be called 'The Rubber Frog' to denote the flexibility it will have versus reality.

    I want Le Pen to be president but I think she needs to get out of the EU before launching a new currency.

    Will France ever unglue itself from the Germans,
    they seem to be very jealous of each other and pro EU,

    But perhaps this time, things will change and the French get a referendum on leaving or staying,

    the result if it ever happens would be interesting.,

    Seems 2017 will be a very interesting year for quite a few European countries.

    Le Pen won't become President.
    France will stay in the EU and keep the Euro.
    French not up to going it alone without German support.
    There - my predictions for 2017.
