Après moi, le déluge

Millions rush to sharpen their French language skills?
A change in French law means it has now become legal to insult the French president.
Parliament agreed on Thursday to amend legislation dating back to 1881 in favour of freedom of speech.
Previously, anyone tempted to offend the head of state risked a fine.
In March, the European Court of Human Rights ruled France violated freedom of expression by fining a man for insulting former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Now, can they work on the President insulting the French people.
