French are saddest people in the world

The French are the saddest people in the world, a survey has revealed.
According to the BVA-Gallup poll of 53 countries, the French are the world champions of scepticism, with 61% of respondents saying 2011 will be "a year of economic difficulty".
Britons were not far behind on 52%, Spaniards 48% and Italians 41%, according toThe Daily Mail.
The poll found that 67% of French respondents believed unemployment would rise over the next 12 months.
In fact, employment was also a major concern in the UK, with 74% of Britons believing unemployment would increase.
The overall negative sentiment in Europe comes in stark contrast to the emerging economies in Asia, South America and Africa, where citizens are generally optimistic about the New Year.
In Brazil, India and China, 49% of respondents said they believed 2011 would be economically prosperous, with only 14% predicting hardship.
Vietnam topped the optimism rating with 70% Vietnamese expressing confidence in the economic outlook for 2011, the survey found.
Confidence also reigns in Nigeria, where 80% of respondents expect their financial situation to improve this year.
Even in war-torn countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq, respondents appeared to look forward to a brighter future.
