French president dissolves government

Paris - French President Francois Hollande is dissolving the government after an open feud in his Cabinet over the country's economy.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls offered up his Socialist government's resignation on Monday after accusing his economy minister of crossing a line with open criticism of the government's policies.

Hollande accepted the resignation and ordered Valls to form a new government by Tuesday.

France has had effectively no economic growth this year and Hollande's approval ratings are in the teens.

Amazing how the West can do this and no one blinks an eye, but if we did that the economy would tank because countries like France would be worried about our stability.
