Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Rumours flying around here in France about a possible national lockdown. Petrol stations getting busy (not sure what the point of that is!). Macron's on TV tonight making a special broadcast. At the moment we're on night-time curfews for certain zones. So it could escalate to a nationwide curfew, or...

Re: A photo you took, today

I know we've been taking the piss on the other place, Phil, but I like it actually. Old school british bike style with jap reliability and without the oil leaks. Looks really clean too. Just don't go peering up one of your chemins on it and wonder... Look, there's an original '66 on ebay right now: ...

Re: EU. In or out?

I completely agree with Jak's last line. The EU is large, cumbersome and bureaucratic - but that's mainly because it does things to a hefty rule book, agreed by the members. So to people like Johnson and his tories, who want to take shortcuts. employ amateurs, play games and break rules - the EU is ...

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

France not looking at all good right now either. In Haute Vienne we are now on night time curfew (9pm until 6am). Which has put paid to my week of free-love all night acid-house raves in one of our fields. Blast. I've had to stand down Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses. I just can't see how this can...

Re: EU. In or out?

Yeah well, not being a brexiter myself of course it's hard to know exactly which emotions they are feeling these days. So I might be unintentionally misrepresenting them. Betrayed, misled, conned, delusioned, perhaps just plain disappointed? You certainly don't hear that jingoistic xenophobic false ...

Re: EU. In or out?

Glad I live in Norway and have applied for citizenship here :D Very best of luck with that. Lots of us living abroad are scrambling for citizenship or residency-rights lifeboats, as the rug is pulled from beneath us. Here in France there are lots of hoops to jump through, but at least those of us w...

Re: EU. In or out?

Although unsurprising, this is very revealing: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/oct/24/johnson-will-wait-for-us-election-result-before-no-deal-brexit-decision Johnson's dog's brexit is dependent on the result of a foreign election. So much for 'independence' and 'taking back control' :lol: ...
