|Brits Lazier than French, Study Claims|

The French Embassy has published a new global economic study, and the report claims that British workers are actually lazier than the French.
According to the BBC News, "The French work harder than the British, says the French embassy in London, in response to an article in the free newspaper City AM, provocatively titled "France's failed socialist experiment is turning into a tragedy". So is it true, asks Agnes Poirier, a French journalist living in London."
The French ambassador to the United Kingdom is pointing to labor statistics to verify his claims.
As reported by the BBC News, "France's labour productivity stands at a healthy €45.4 (£38) per hour worked according to Eurostat, well ahead of the EU average of €32.1, while the OECD reports that the average number of hours per week worked in France stood at 38 hours for 2011, compared to 36.4 in the UK and 35.5 in Germany. Productivity per hour in France is 15% higher than in the UK. Hard work indeed!"
The French embassy even contends that the two-hours lunch for French workers is just a myth.
