Head of Mitsubishi France Calls Industry Minister a “Retard”
Debard has reportedly stepped dawn for person reasons, but isn’t calling the French Industry Minister a retard kind of personal?
Here’s the statement the Mitsubishi man reportedly made to French daily La Provence: “This moron, this retard, is increasing green taxes, lowering speed limits on the Paris ring road and ruining our lives. He is stupid and understands nothing, you can quote me on that.”
As a member of the Socialist Party, France's industry minister, Arnaud Montebourg has (wrongfully in the case of the Koreans) accused Asian automakers of dumping cars in France. He is also against PSA’s rumored plans to cut jobs in France and move to Chinese factories.
He is a socialist after all. Can you say “France Uber Alles”, or was that “Vive la France!”? We get them confused sometimes.

I also precise that some years ago, he was that kind of CEO to personaly speack in Radio add campaign, for Hyundai, at that time. A "passionate person" ! As an independant (precised in the article), he sold Mitsubishi, and also other asian cars.
He should have known that public insults aren't that appreciated, there at Mitsubishi's HQ.
