ABSTRACT
The French Government's financial house is in scandalous disorder. Time and again the Assembly has refused to permit any start on the house cleaning because some vested interest was able to make a deal with other vested interests for enough votes to block the project. But since August 1951, the Socialists have not been in any government coalition. The working class has had, therefore, no direct representation. And when Joseph Laniel announced that he would use his "special powers" to remove the obstacles to reform, it turned out that the obstacle he meant was the "little" Frenchman who works for the government.
