Bungling builders bulldoze entire historic French chateau by mistake… after its millionaire owner told them to demolish a small outhouse on its estate

· Chateau de Bellevue, near Bordeaux, once boasted 140,000-square-feet of grand reception rooms, ornate fireplaces, winding marble staircases
· Then its new owner, a Russian millionaire businessman, employed a team of Polish builders to renovate the manor to its former glory
· But the workers apparently misunderstood the instructions and pulled down the castle, leaving the outhouse completely untouched

FRANCE, law prohibiting “the concealment of face in a public space” went into effect.

H/T from Winds of Jihad.
Another one of those awful islamophobic anti muzzie web sites that have the impudence to question and criticize and call into question the actions of the rop.
Those members of which preach hate, have organized gangs right here in the UK who have targeted young and vulnerable white girls for rape and prostitution.
The very people who use free speech to damn Democracy and haven’t the sense to know how senseless their actions are.  The folks many of whom are immigrants, who quite openly insist that their host country must bow to their needs and opinions and religion. Which as we all know is a peaceful religion. Don’t we? 

Well, France also has problems with these roaches in human form.  They invade a country and then push and push to see how far they can go. And in the west so far, they have gone a few miles. But even under a socialist president, they have laws against some things and one of those things is having your face covered in public.  Which naturally is a hate crime against muzzies and their oh so peaceful religion.
Here’s the latest which is more an update as the story is on going.

France: Freedom sack causes outrage, rebellion and incitement to riot

by sheikyermami on October 31, 2012


A court in France’s northern province of Lille sentenced a fully-covered 18-year-old woman to 6 months in prison on Oct.30 for refusing to present her identity card to police, reported AFP.

The woman, who wasn’t identified in reports, refused to show her identity card to police, telling them she didn’t have time before attempting to escape. The woman kicked police officers who followed and eventually caught her.

The woman was convicted of willful violence, outrage, rebellion and incitement to riot and was issued a sentence two times longer than expected. The prosecutor had originally demanded a 3 month prison sentence.

“If she had shown her face she would have avoided beginning her career with an adult criminal record,” said the prosecutor.

Covered women in France are legally required to show their faces and identify themselves as of Oct. 11, 2010, when a law prohibiting “the concealment of face in a public space” went into effect.

In France, a new youth movement is targeting the negative influence Islam is having on French society. Generation Identitaire (Generation Identity) has issued a video, Declaration of War, in response to what is perceived to be an Islamist war against Western society: “We are the generation who get killed for glancing at the wrong person, for refusing someone a cigarette, or having an ‘attitude’ that annoys someone.”

Meanwhile, the establishment media are declaring the group to be “far right” and ignoring the circumstances which have led to the emergence of such a movement.

Generation Identitaire is one of many groups giving voice to the fear that many of their fellow citizens feel. Their Declaration of War lists a catalog of examples of left-wing social engineering that members of the organization believe have undermined the foundations of French Society:

we love stories from la belle france


My wife saw this in her paper and said, only the French, with I must say some admiration.  Which is not her default position with regard to that country.
Anyway, I sure hope it’s true cos it reads so well.  He says it isn’t but who cares? 

Can’t think of anything else to say on the subject so here.

French interior minister accused of clearing out tramps and gypsies in stylish part of Paris ‘so his wife can go shopping in peace’

Anne Gravoin was reportedly confronted by drunk down-and-out in street

The classically trained violinist previously caused controversy by mocking the prime minister’s wife

She regularly visits fashionable stores with first lady Valerie Trierweile

By Emma Reynolds


The French interior minister has been accused of ordering police to remove tramps and gypsies from his neighbourhood ‘so his wife can shop in peace’.

Manuel Valls, 50, reportedly told officers to show ‘zero tolerance’ in evicting homeless people from the stylish district around the Place de la Bastille near his home in Paris.

According to a satirical weekly, Le Canard Enchaîné, Mr Valls ordered the clean-up at the request of his glamorous wife, Anne Gravoin, after she allegedly complained of being accosted by a drunken down-and-out on a trip to supermarket.

Officers have now been stationed outside the Franprix store, and managers told the magazine police had now been outside for two weeks, moving loiterers on.

Yesterday, Mr Valls said ‘categorically’ denied he was behind the police clean-up operation, saying the claims were ‘unfounded’, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Paris police said the forceful approach was in response to complaints by right-wing politicians and petitions from residents over the past three months.

But local officers reportedly said the move came ‘because Madame Valls was very shocked by women begging with their babies. It was a humanitarian response.’

Ms Gravoin, a classically trained violinist, is no stranger to controversy. She was criticised in August after saying of prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault’s wife Brigitte: ‘It has to be said that a musician is a little more glamorous than Mrs Ayrault, a German teacher from the suburbs of Nantes!’

This is not the first time her husband’s heavy-handed treatment of gypsies on his own doorstep has come under scrutiny.

In August, the minister ordered police to destroy a Roma camp in his political powerbase and to deport illegal immigrants living there.

Officers armed with truncheons and shields moved into the settlement in the Paris suburb of Evry, where Mr Valls was mayor for 11 years from 2001.

He was said to have acted because the camp was ‘dangerously close to a commuter railway line’ and could create public health problems.

Heck those scum create public health and crime problems just by being alive. But the French do (it seems) a better job of deporting and breaking up their camps then is done here where they worry a lot about sensitivity and hurt feelings.

You must treat all foreigners to protect their rights… but you can still turn away brits. huh??

So you think there’s problem back home (USA) do ya.
Try this bit of insanity on for size.  I don’t have the imagination to figure out what could possibly be next.  Maybe a formal apology to the Germans for 1939?  Makes as much sense as anything else the euros get up to.
What an education I am getting by being here.  Under normal circumstances in my previous life at home in the states, I really doubt I’d come across things like this.  You know, different lifestyle. I’d have a TV set most likely and would be watching the Dodgers.  And that fellow whose last name I forgot, Mike something. Builder and fixer.  One of those home improvement shows.  I’m just saying I’d be busy with other things and this stuff would simply not figure in my life. 

Well anyway …. this is pretty weird stuff.  The Brits really need to get some things seen to before the island finishes sinking. Maybe while they’re doing that, they’d be too busy to be nit picking at the faults found in the USA. And why are they looking anyway?

NHS tells doctors: You must treat all foreigners to protect their human rights… but you can still turn away BRITONS

· Foreigners must be given free treatment by GPs - it is their human right
· New guidelines dictate that doctors must register any foreign patient
· Includes asylum seekers, overseas students or tourists on a short holiday
· Some GPs are furious, describing changes as a ‘charter for health tourism’

By Sophie Borland

Health tourists must be given free treatment by GPs because it is their human right, say NHS bosses.
New guidelines tell doctors across England they must register any foreign patient who asks for care otherwise it would be ‘discriminatory’.
These include asylum seekers, overseas students or tourists coming for a short holiday. Once registered, they will be entitled to the same NHS care as all other patients and can receive free blood tests, jabs and – in some cases – free prescription drugs.
In fact, the new rules will give overseas patients more rights than those living in the UK who can be turned away from surgeries if they live a few yards outside its catchment area.

There are also fears the ruling will make it even harder for local patients to get an appointment.

Already half of patients cannot get an appointment with their doctor within 48 hours, according to the Government’s own figures.

48 Hours?  Heck, I can not get an appointment with my regular doc if needed in less then a month.  OK, so sometimes it’s only been two weeks. But still.  Of course I can always see another doctor at the same
practise. There are about 12 or 15 at the office complex. Just depends on who has a slot that can see you sooner for non emergency stuff.

Some family doctors are furious at the guidelines and describe them as a ‘charter for health tourism’.
They say that such patients, once registered at a surgery, will also find it far easier to be referred to hospital for thousands of pounds of free treatment.
By law, overseas patients are not entitled to be treated at hospital – unless it is urgent – but staff rarely check on their backgrounds.
Until now, GP practices were not legally obliged to register foreigners and many turn away patients if they do not have passports or ‘proof of address’ documents.

But the new guidelines issued to all doctors in England will change this.
One GP, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ‘I am not sure the British taxpayer should be paying for the world’s health treatment for free.’
And Tory MP Chris Skidmore, who is campaigning for tougher regulation on health tourism, said: ‘It is alarming that managers are passing these kind of diktats to doctors, many of whom are rightly worried that GP registration is effectively buying free treatment on the NHS.
‘This is not just about the money, vital though that is – we cannot have the NHS, paid for by taxpayers, being abused by people who pay nothing into the system and who are not eligible for free care.’
Mr Skidmore has obtained figures showing that health tourists currently owe the NHS £40million in unpaid medical bills.

Oh btw …. Brits and French at daggers drawn over fishing rights and French boats have been acting very aggressively against English boats with near ramming actions and surrounding Brit boats to keep them from their job.  No shots fired yet but I hear the Navy might be called in to protect Brit fishing fleet.  Last time they did that was with dustup and Iceland. Pretty sure it was Iceland. Iceland declared an exclusive economic zone beyond its own territorial waters.(1972)
So anyway, Iceland Navy started cutting Brit fishing nets, Brits deployed the RN and they actually started ramming each other. It came to an end in ’76 when Iceland threatened to close a vital NATO base.  Brits said ooops and conceded UK ships would not fish within the 200 mile limit set by Iceland.

maid in france or made in france?  ooh lala. a loverly sex scandal? the horny left?

There’s hardly anything more prurient, more interesting, maybe erotic even, then a nice political sex scandal. Or even the rumour of one will do.
But … when it’s Made in France, or should it be Maid in France?  Well.
OOh- lala.

Seems France’s newest first lady has been hot stuff, high drive in more ways then one the paper says.  Not that there’s anything untoward recently, but the past of the pretty 47 year old Valerie Trierweiler is not just all over the press in France.  It’s news here too. Of course it is. Why shouldn’t it be?  Look at that nice leg in the photo.

The hard copy headline read, but wait. You can see it for yourselves.


See?  Now isn’t that so … so ….?  Ah. So French. Gotta love it.
Bit unfair of the Mail however to suggest a 6 way thing, as if she was in bed with a group all at the same time.  Which she wasn’t, unless I misunderstand the term, ‘ménage.’
Anyway .... I just think the whole thing is a gas. As in, it’s funny.  My twisted sense of humor I guess but darn it, it is a laff.

So here’s the entire story about the lady of the leg the French people refer to as, “ The Rottweiler.” She isn’t a popular lady in La Belle France.
But who cares?  So long as it isn’t Jane Fonda, piss be upon her, I like looking at pretty women with nice legs.  And they do not have to be young ones either. Although I don’t care for her politics, heck, Helen Mirren looked good at 60.

btw … France doesn’t actually have a “First Lady” in the American sense although it’s often written that way.

France’s First Lady three-timed husband with the President and married right-winger (and the rival politicians KNEW they were sharing a mistress)


· France’s First Lady had affair with arch right-winger Patrick Devedjian
· After he refused to leave his wife for her, she concentrated on Mr Hollande
· Both politicians knew they were sleeping with the same mistress
· Details revealed in unauthorised biography of Miss Trierweiler

By Peter Allen
They have always been seen as a nation of lovers, happy to give in to their passions and turn a blind eye to the indiscretions of others.
But the latest revelations about the sexual goings-on at the top of their political establishment have shattered the usual French sangfroid.
It emerged yesterday that the First Lady, Valerie Trierweiler, had been at the centre of an astonishing ‘menage a six’.

Miss Trierweiler, it was revealed, had been the shared mistress of Francois Hollande, now the country’s Socialist president, and a married conservative minister, Patrick Devedjian.
Not only that, but she was still married to her husband at the time.
And more controversially still, Mr Hollande was at the time living with Segolene Royal, the mother of his four children and a senior Socialist politician in her own right.
This is the first time that details of 47-year-old Miss Trierweiler’s passionate affair with Right-winger Mr Devedjian, now 68, have been made public.
She was sleeping with Mr Devedjian at the same time as seeing Left-winger Mr Hollande, now 58.
Miss Trierweiler frequently asked Mr Devedjian, who is still a senior member of the opposition UMP coalition, to leave his wife of more than 30 years for her, and when he refused she concentrated her affections on Mr Hollande.

ncredibly, Mr Devedjian and Mr Hollande both knew they were sleeping with the same mistress, and developed ‘a great respect for each other’.
Details of the complicated affairs are contained in La Frondeuse (The Rebellious One), an unauthorised biography of Miss Trierweiler by the French political writers Christophe Jakubyszyn and Alix Bouilhaguet, which comes out today.
They were also publicised across France yesterday, with respected newspapers including Le Figaro and broadcasters carrying the story.

In an interview with French magazine Point Of View, Mr Jakubyszyn said Mr Devedjian and Miss Trierweiler enjoyed ‘an intimate relationship which lasted a number of years. At the time, both of them were married. They hesitated in making the big jump, to change their life.

‘Patrick Devedjian dilly-dallied so much that Valerie Trierweiler was left to be seduced by a second man from another political side – Francois Hollande.’
Mr Jakubyszyn, who also presents a political programme on French television, said that ‘little by little, the relationship with Hollande took over the other one’.


In 2003 Miss Trierweiler gave Mr Devedjian ‘an ultimatum’ to leave his wife, Sophie, an army general’s daughter with whom he has four children. But Mr Devedjian ‘would not give in’ and leave Sophie, whom he had married in 1969, said Mr Jakubyszyn.

Miss Trierweiler was at the time married to her second husband, her fellow Paris Match magazine journalist Denis Trierweiler, with whom she has three sons.
The Trierweiler divorce was not applied for until 2007, before being sealed in 2010, meaning Miss Trierweiler would effectively have been seeing at least three men at one stage.

Mr Jakubyszyn said that Mr Hollande and Mr Devedjian – who he said ‘maintained a great respect for each other’ – were at one stage general secretaries of their respective parties.

Miss Trierweiler, who was a political affairs reporter while sleeping with the two men, would have accordingly been party to some intriguing pillow talk from across the political spectrum.

Mr Hollande did not ‘officially’ break up with Miss Royal until after she unsuccessfully ran for the presidency in 2007.
The pair regularly paraded themselves as a couple up until this year, but it is now clear that Mr Hollande had taken Miss Trierweiler as a mistress many years before.
Mr Devedjian is a close personal friend of Nicolas Sarkozy, the conservative UMP president who was defeated by Mr Hollande in the May presidential election.
Since then, Miss Trierweiler – nicknamed ‘Valerie Rottweiler’ and ‘First Concubine’ by the French media – has become one of the most unpopular first ladies in recent history.

have fun.  see more read more

Good french citizens have enough and run roma scum out of their community. BRAVO!

I just can’t get away. Can I.

Just now saw this and am sooooooo happy to share.

Bravo Frenchmen!


There’s nothing for me to say.  This says it all.  Maybe Brits should take a page from these good folks.

Romas chased from camp by Marseille residents

Residents in the southern French city of Marseille took the law into their own hands and chased a group of Roma from their illegal camp before burning what was left behind, police said yesterday.


Police arrived at the scene to keep the locals and the Roma apart as the Roma left on Thursday evening with their caravans and vehicles, but some of the locals returned later to set fire to any belongings left behind.

The locals, who blamed the Roma for burglaries in the area that had happened since their arrival a few days earlier, had warned authorities that if they were not evicted they would do it themselves.

“It’s no surprise this has happened,” said Caroline Godard of Rencontres Tsiganes, a group set up to help Roma. “There is a climate of tension that is being fanned. We are moving towards a war between the poor.”

The Marseille branch of France’s Human Rights League (LDH) said that although there was no violence and noone was injured in Thursday’s incidents, “one can fear the worst” for the future.

France’s Socialist government is currently attempting to get an estimated 15,000 Roma living in makeshift, often illegal camps across France to return to their countries of origin, mainly Romania and Bulgaria.

The policy of closing migrant camps and repatriating the Roma with a 300-euro incentive has been widely criticised. Critics have said the Roma will use the money Paris will give them to buy bus tickets back to France.

Romania, one of the two poorest countries in the European Union, has the biggest Roma minority in Europe: 620,000 according to the latest official census, more than two million according to local rights groups.

the biggest Roma minority in Europe: 620,000

ZYKLON B could put paid to that number

If only.

France set to ban the words ‘mother’ and ‘father’ from official documents.

See?  This is what liberalism and political correctness leads to.
So okay.  I’m not a dad and never likely to be one.  Always preferred cats and dogs to kids.  But still.  Even if it doesn’t happen in La Belle France’s happy new socialist state, that anyone could even conceive of this doesn’t say anything good about the state of western thinking. Or at least in this case, of French thinkers who must come from the left to dream up this.

Now then, having said that.  There is a good question as to whether only male and female marriage produces better parents.  What I mean is, there has been ample proof here in the UK with screaming headlines about the torture and sexual abuse of children, by their hetro but drug and drink influenced parents.  Baby P comes to mind. The poor tyke was only 17 months old and had fifty injuries and broken bones. A horrible example of a death that could have been avoided.  And I believe his mother and boyfriend are out and free now. But that’s an aside.
While I don’t personally believe a child should be brought up by two daddies or mommies, I can’t say they would be any less loving then straight folks.  And judging by the papers, there are way too many of those rearing kids who if there was any justice, should have been sterilized long ago. But hey, banning words like mom and dad?  What next?

France set to ban the words ‘mother’ and ‘father’ from official documents

France is set to ban the words “mother” and “father” from all official documents under controversial plans to legalise gay marriage.

The move, which has outraged Catholics, means only the word “parents” would be used in identical marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples.
The draft law states that “marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender”.
It says all references to “mothers and fathers” in the civil code – which enshrines French law – will be swapped for simply “parents”.
The law would also give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples.

Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told France’s Catholic newspaper La Croix: “Who is to say that a heterosexual couple will bring a child up better than a homosexual couple, that they will guarantee the best conditions for the child’s development?”
“What is certain is that the interest of the child is a major preoccupation for the government.”
The head of the French Catholic Church Cardinal Philippe Barbarin warned followers last week that gay marriage could lead to legalised incest and polygamy in society.

President Francois Hollande pledged in his manifesto to legalise gay marriage. The draft law will be presented to his cabinet for approval on October 31.

I say good for the French and screw the UN.  Gasbags who have nothing better to do then spend other ppls’ tax money.

Anyway, the frakin UN has its knickers ina twist because the French are tossing out gypsies. The headline reads, “UN attacks France over human rights.” What human? Where do they find those among gypsies outside a Hollywood movie?  This followed a headline from some days before which read; “French rout gipsy camp in migrant crackdown.”

See, the French have the same problem the Brits and others do. But say what you want to about them, the French once they’ve had it are not weepy eyed hand wringers crying, Ohhhh dear! What shall we do?  No.  They got fed up to the gills with the BS and cracked down on the vermin.  Mores the pity they won’t simply shoot them dead so none can sneak back into their country.  Which no doubt they will do.
The reporting paper said that the French were “forcing people out of their homes on ILLEGAL campsites.” And the UN doesn’t like that.  This is supposed to be going on all over France.  Gee, imagine that.  Their country and they get the notion since it still is theirs, they have a right to toss out subhuman illegals setting up campsites. Well I never.
Oh yeah …. this post isn’t so much about the rat bastards at the UN or even the French connection I’ve made here.  Nope.
It’s about some Bulgarians.  The French are sending back gypos to Romania and Bulgaria from whence they came.

So while the French are sending many back, guess who’s coming to dinner here?
You don’t need to guess. Do ya?  Of course ya don’t.
So take a look anyway.

H/T The Sun, A place I rarely visit.

“They heard about the benefits here and have come to claim them”

Family of nine Bulgarian gypsies who targeted UK to scrounge benefits are housed in just three weeks — at the taxpayers’ expense

A FAMILY of Bulgarian gypsies who came to Britain to scrounge benefits have been given a house — less than three weeks after arriving in the country.
Rusi Georgiev, 41, partner Mariana Sabeva, 34, and their SEVEN kids headed to the UK when work ran out at home.
They set up a makeshift camp outside historic Westminster Cathedral in Central London — as Rusi told pals he was here to take advantage of the soft welfare system.
The family has now been handed a home after lodging a claim for asylum with the Home Office.
The gypsies arrived legally by coach with European passports. They were in council emergency accommodation before camping outside the Catholic cathedral.
The Sun found them living in squalid conditions, littered with dirty nappies.
They slept on the ground outside the cathedral doors.
A fellow Bulgarian said: “They heard about the benefits here and have come to claim them.
“They’ve been offered tickets back to Bulgaria by the authorities but they want to stay.
“In Bulgaria they can’t get these benefits. More and more people are going to do this.”
Westminster Council eventually took the family off the streets because of “safeguarding concerns around the children”.
They are now living in a house at taxpayers’ expense while the Home Office processes their asylum claim.
Tory MP Nicholas Soames called it “unacceptable”.
Matthew Sinclair, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, added: “Ministers must ensure Britain isn’t an easy target for benefit tourism.
“Asylum is not meant for anyone who fancies an easy life at taxpayers’ expense.”

Wanna bet ?  Looks like you have it already like it or not. 
There are two choices.  Delete the entire family and send a message to others who want to come here and suck the place dry, or pay em and house em. Forever.
Or, you could send them to France and let them deport them.  But then, that leaves open the possibility they will return.

pygmies of politics draw a line in the sand, warn assad how to act in his own country

I heard on the radio that Obama has drawn a line in the sand (now that’s an appropriate word, sand is.) with regard to the use of chemical weapons by Assad. Then the Brit PM got into the act, not wanting to leave the bright and brave spotlight on O., and he too drew a line in the sand on the same issue.  Now France wants to flex military muscle because they are suggesting an alliance of western powers and bypassing the United Nations can you believe that?  The French suggest a limited version of a no fly zone. They want action but short of war.

As I listen to all this bloated bull shit from these political pigmies, I am left with the notion that France and the USA and the Brits, are all actually hoping like mad that Assad does use chemical weapons and thus give them the excuse they are desperate to find, to topple him. 

Another thought also comes to mind.

All that lovely technology used in the action in Libya, and it could be that the war there ended too quickly for the allies to use some other toys.
And lets face it, we do have so much unused and untested so far in actual warfare.

Oh joy.  Now here’s their chance in Syria to play with some more toys, if only Assad will co-operate and use his weapons of mass destruction.  It’s sort of like real estate with location, location, location.
But in this case with Syria and President Assad, it’s chemical weapons, chemical weapons, chemical weapons.
Never mind that so far at least, he has not issued so much as a threat to do that.
In fact, the allies have been clear that even the threat will be enough to bring them in on Syria’s civil war. 

I guess the bottom line is no surprise.
Only those govts. who have the approval of the politically correct powers that rule in the west, are allowed to defend themselves against armed insurgents hiding among civilians.  Insurgents who quickly cry democracy and call themselves freedom fighters usually get the front pages and the support they need.  The party in power almost always loses the propaganda war and the other over used cry is then heard.

Civilians are being slaughtered by their own government.  There’s mass-a- crees being committed and it’s all documented by who?
Right.  “Activists”.  Amnsty Intl., Civil Rights Watch, and a dozen other nosy do gooders who’ve no business there in the first place.

It does look very much like Assad could be ousted.  There’s talk here that Brit specialists are already there and have been. Hell, who’d know?
But I wonder what would replace him?

So do the few Christians who remain and whose questions have yet to be answered.

slag heaps join pyramids as a world treasure says socialist mayor. unesco agrees.

If I have any problems with the French, they are few and most likely minor.  Hmmmm. I need to give that last one more thought.
Thing is, generally I don’t have much that I make fun of.  I let Drew and the rest of you folks have all the fun at French expense.  Although, now lets be honest people, not all of it is fair.  Unless LyndonB says it.  If Lyndon says something snarky, something really sarcastic, then you can take that to the bank.  I haven’t known him to be wrong on anything yet, even when he called me to task once or 2wice. 

I’m sure the French must wonder from time to time, why it is they come into so much criticism. Ah.  Perfidious Albion. Right?
And from time to time we do make them the butt of our jokes. (And that street isn’t one way)

Well here is an example Dear France, and I recognize you’re not alone in the silly stakes, why we sometimes shake our heads in wonder.
Yes, I can understand the why of the decision by local politicians to bring this about.  I may think it’s bonkers but I may also be wrong.
However, to equate the pyramids of ancient Egypt to a 400 foot slag heap is going a bit over the top. And it’s that comparison I have issues with.

And then there’s UNESCO who approve. Now there is a really loopy group.


France’s slag heaps join Pyramids on list of UNESCO world treasures

The slag heaps of France’s northern mining region have become the latest, unlikely addition to Unesco’s world heritage list, rivalling global wonders like the Taj Mahal, the Great Barrier Reef and the Pyramids.

By By Henry Samuel, in Paris

Local politicians hailed the inclusion of the Nord-Pas de Calais mining basin on the coveted list as a victory for the depressed region still struggling to recover from the demise of its three centuries-old coal industry.

They hope the new title will turn the region’s slag heaps, but also its mining pits, railway stations, workers estates and mining villages into tourist attractions that will boost the local economy.

Unesco defined the region as an “organically evolved” cultural landscape, part of a list of “distinct geographical areas or properties uniquely representing the combined work of nature and of man”.

The 120km-long “landscape” includes 87 mining villages, 51 slag heaps, some of them covering 90 hectares and exceeding 140 metres in height.
Included in the site are its specially-designed mining schools, religious buildings, health and community facilities, company premises, owners and managers’ houses and town halls.

In their sales pitch, mining campaigners wrote: “Unesco celebrates the pyramids built by the pharaohs while some slag heaps, the fruit of miners’ labours, are just as high!”

They also argued that the heaps were environmental oases: “These coal mountains are natural places that shelter an extraordinarily rich ecosystem. They were long presented as a negative symbol, but today they have their role to play.”

Martine Aubry, the mayor of Lille and Socialist Party leader hailed the decision as “a tribute to all those who worked to develop our economy, our industry, often at the cost of their health or their life.”


Socialists just love things like Soviet tractor factories and slag heaps. Which is where socialists belong imho.

french bodyguards forget their guns … oh dear, oh dear

H/T Irish Independent
who apparently got it from one of my usual sources, which I missed. How’s that happen?
Asleep at the wheel!

This wasn’t seen as funny by those involved but darn, it sure tickled my funny bone.

Just a very short article. That saying about good things in small packages seems to apply.

Take a look.  And cry for France. After you stop laffing.


Hollande’s agents forgot to pack guns
By Henry Samuel in Paris

FRENCH secret service agents protecting President Francois Hollande forgot to pack their guns on a foreign visit, it was reported yesterday.

In a blunder befitting Inspector Clouseau, the presidential guards from the elite GSPR unit only realised the guns were absent when they arrived at Rio de Janeiro airport for the UN climate conference this month.

The officers usually travel with a secured briefcase containing an array of firearms, and it later transpired that the guns had been left at the Elysee Palace in Paris.

“They searched the (presidential) Airbus with a fine tooth comb, to no avail,” the French satirical weekly ‘Le Canard Enchaine’ reported. This meant that, for the duration of the trip, the bodyguards’ only means of protecting Mr Hollande were their bare hands.

“In police memory, it’s a first,” said one elite officer.


The guard in charge of the weapons was soon identified and sacked because he reportedly tried to blame the neglect on somebody else.

Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, a government spokesman, said: “A bag of guns did indeed remain at the Elysee. It’s true it was left behind, it’s true it was considered a serious fault on the part of the officer in charge, and so his division commander fired him upon his return.”

She denied that the president’s entire protection unit was unarmed during the trip, saying the bodyguards carried “replacement guns”.

Before the incident, Mr Hollande’s bodyguards had complained to French media that the new president was making their lives difficult by wanting to remain, at all costs, a “normal” figure, even if that meant compromising his security. (© Daily Telegraph, London)

muslim scum to sue french police, claims his killer son was murdered by cops.

I guess if there’s anything to get really angry about, as in steamed, RCOB, it’s this maddening story.

Use your imagination, and think of the very worst things that can be done to vermin like this.

You’ll recall the story that made the world’s headlines recently, where that islamic pond scum in France, shot dead a number of ppl which included a little girl.

Well ..... the French police are facing legal troubles because the scumbag,verminous father got himself a lawyer. Says the police “murdered” his lovely son.
And he found a filthy rotten slag lawyer.  I’d better stop here.


Father of Toulouse killer Mohamed Merah sues for murder

Mohamed Merah’s gun attacks shocked France.
The father of Mohamed Merah, the Islamist gunman killed by French police after shooting seven people, has formally sued over his son’s “murder”.

A lawyer for Mohamed Benalel Merah, who lives in Algeria, said the suit was against those “who gave the orders at the top of the police”.

The gunman was shot dead at his flat in Toulouse after a 32-hour siege.

He had confessed to killing seven people, including Jewish children, in a rampage which shocked France.

Mohamed Benalel Merah said soon after his son’s death on 22 March he intended to sue the French government.

On Monday, French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, who is assisting Algerian lawyer Zahia Mokhtari, filed the suit in Paris.

“This is a suit against unnamed persons for murder with aggravating circumstances concerning those who gave the orders at the top of the police,” said Ms Coutant-Peyre.

In all, Merah, 23, shot dead three soldiers, three children and a teacher, filming his attacks.

He was dubbed the “scooter killer” because of the stolen vehicle he used in the three separate shootings in Toulouse and the nearby town of Montauban.

Ms Coutant-Peyre was quoted by AFP news agency as saying: “You’ve got 300 to 400 heavily armed people and a guy shut up all alone in his apartment. That alone is enough to raise questions.”

The father’s suggestion in March that the French authorities had deliberately chosen to kill his son rather than capture him caused indignation in Paris.

“If I were the father of such a monster, I would shut my mouth in shame,” said Alain Juppe, who was then French foreign minister.

sarkozy, waterloo and the new first mistress of france

Saw this first thing morning paper, thought it should follow my previous posting of French election.
It makes for some interesting reading. I knew he had his critics, which I simply passed off as just more left wing ranting. However, the wife is better read then I am on things French, (she’s a Brit btw) and has been following things there. From time to time she mentions things in passing about the former president, which of course I took in but didn’t really mull over.  I figured, what’s the big deal? His wife is wealthy and so is he I assumed. Just jealous lefties being what they usually are. So bad me for not doing more to learn.  To be honest, I was just interested in those things that caught my immediate attention. Like the immigrants coming thru France to the UK from all over the world it so seemed.  And the French problem with muzzy and gypsy scum. So in the end I was pretty much superficial in news of things French. 

Then I read the following article.

Vulgar, rude and egotistical, President Bling-Bling has met his Waterloo


So the French have got their wish: they have evicted the brash, egotistical and hyperactive President Bling-Bling from the Elysee Palace after just one term, along with his disliked Italian supermodel spouse.

Few will mourn the departure of a man who promised so much but delivered so little with his strutting cockiness and super-rich friends.

Nicolas Sarkozy made the right moves politically on the road to the presidency. But then came so many wrong moves in office, starting on the night of his election triumph when he celebrated with rich supporters at one of Paris’s most expensive restaurants before jetting off to continue partying on the big yacht of a billionaire businessman.

This set the tone for his tenure. He gave himself a 140 per cent pay rise, taking his annual salary above £300,000, then used state funds for late payment fines on his utility bills and £660 a day on fresh flowers. He reduced taxes on the rich, which backfired when financial meltdown struck a year into his term.

He spent £240million kitting out a new presidential plane, complete with £1million soundproofed doors on a luxurious double bedroom and £60,000 bread ovens to ensure fresh-baked baguettes. Then he became embroiled in a series of financial scandals, including claims he took illegal donations from the elderly heiress to the L’Oreal fortune.

Together with his third wife, model turned pop star Carla Bruni, the couple became fixtures in the celebrity magazines to the distaste of conservative supporters. Their baby was the first born to a sitting president.

Then there were pictures of the president checking his Blackberry during an audience with the Pope, which infuriated Roman Catholics, or the notorious occasion he swore at someone who disagreed with him at an agricultural fair.

‘His behaviour is vulgar, I’m afraid,’ said former defence minister Alain Richard.

‘He has lost millions of older and conservative voters with his bad manners. They just do not think it is presidential behaviour.’

During the campaign Mr Sarkozy apologised for his actions. But there was derision when his wife, who earned nearly £5million a year at the height of her modelling career, insisted they were modest folk who just liked watching soap operas.

The campaign culminated with another controversial meal when Mr Sarkozy joined 50 guests at a fund-raising lunch of quails’ eggs and blue lobster in Paris’s most expensive hotel. Afterwards, he was caught on camera slipping off his £50,000 gold watch, a present from his wife.

He was always something of an outsider in France – not least because he drinks Diet Coke rather than fine wines, prefers sweets to smelly cheeses and likes fat Havana cigars.

Now he must retire to lick his wounds. His own house went to pay alimony on his two previous marriages, so the couple are expected to move to Carla’s mansion by the Bois de Boulogne (although there is also her huge summer house on the Riviera).

So farewell to Nicolas Sarkozy, who was often described as a would-be Napoleon but failed to live up to such grandiose claims. He set out to transform his nation but, dazed by celebrity and dazzled by money, ended up alienating his people so much that yesterday he met his inevitable Waterloo.


So for now it looks like we will have a more socialist state in France, Heaven help them. The new guy is a tax and spend liberal so there isn’t anything to add here on that subject.  Here’s what is interesting at this particular moment. His partner.

The new first mistress?  And don’t pay her looks compliments because that would be taken as ....  SEXXXXXXXXIST!
Oh boy. The French are in for a ride.

Close doesn’t count and I’m left wondering what will happen now. The man who won does not have a happy track record with regard to economics. That aside, he is supposed to be very left, he is a socialist or so I’ve read.
I’m haven’t paid enough attention to things happening across the channel to understand why so many could have voted this way.
Things may get very interesting.
The new guy wants to sock it to the very wealthy with a 75% tax. Can anyone else see an exodus coming?

The uncharismatic Mr Hollande, who has never held any ministerial office and is the first socialist to win the French presidency since Francois Mitterrand in 1988,

Au revoir, austerity! New Euro crisis as French vote for return to ruinous spending

President Nicolas Sarkozy ousted by socialist candidate Francois Hollande
Meanwhile in Greece, voters reject policies of tough financial discipline
Analysts warns results could tip single currency into collapse within months

By Peter Allen, Tim Shipman and Rob Davies

Europe was plunged into fresh economic chaos last night as France rejected austerity and elected a tax-and-spend socialist president.

Nicolas Sarkozy suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Francois Hollande, who ran on a platform of tearing up last December’s controversial deal to save the euro from oblivion.

The inexperienced Mr Hollande is now seeking talks with the European Central Bank and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to demand further borrowing to boost growth.

The menace to the single currency was compounded when voters in near-bankrupt Greece also rejected plans to impose tough financial discipline.

The far Right looked set to grab its first seats, saying: ‘The day of national revolution has begun against those who are selling us out and looting the sweat of the Greek people.’

City analysts said that while stock markets had expected a Hollande win, the results in Paris and Athens could tip the strained eurozone back into turmoil.

Mr Hollande claimed that many voters in Europe would greet his election with relief.

‘Europe is watching us, austerity can no longer be the only option,’ he said.

Struggling to contain his emotions, Mr Sarkozy said: ‘I did my best to protect the French people during the events of the past five years, so that France could come out stronger from this crisis.’

He finished: ‘You are the eternal France, I love you.’

He is the 11th European leader to be swept from office since the start of the economic crisis in 2008.

On a day of high drama:

Mr Hollande defeated Mr Sarkozy by 52 per cent to 48 in only the second time a sitting French President has failed to win a second term;
Greece’s conservative New Democracy and socialist PASOK parties risked falling short of the 151-seat majority needed to form a coalition government;
Financial experts warned that the Euro could collapse within months;
British officials admitted that David Cameron made a serious error by ostentatiously backing Mr Sarkozy’s re-election bid.

The uncharismatic Mr Hollande, who has never held any ministerial office and is the first socialist to win the French presidency since Francois Mitterrand in 1988, has been an outspoken advocate of rewriting the plans to save the single currency.

He wants a new ‘preamble’ written into the new European fiscal pact signed by 25 EU nations to water down calls for austerity measures.

He is demanding a change to strict rules which dictate how much member states can spend, without which most observers believe a new European economic crisis is inevitable.

After his victory he said that one of his priorities was to ‘preserve our social model’ – a reference to France’s generous welfare state.

The new president has pledged to spend an extra 20billion euros in the years ahead to kickstart the economy and wants to slap a 75 per cent tax rate on those earning more than one million euros a year, or around £850,000.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
