EU / FRANCE / UK : Paris Continues Nastiness Over Cameron Euro Balk...Demanding That London Be Downgraded First!
First President Sarkozy called PM David Cameron 'an obstinate kid' for refusing to join the euro rescue plan.
Now...Bank of France governor Christian Noyer (above) believes that UK sovereign debt should be downgraded before Paris.
France has been warned by 2 credit agencies over the potential loss of its coveted AAA rating.
But Noyer insisted that the UK's rating must be lowered first...because of its debt, inflation and lower growth.
