Re: A new low for British Government

You don’t have to talk about it but it was meant genuinely, you say how awful it is here, so why stay? There is no disrespect but actual interest and an honest concern. I have lived in France longer than I have lived in the UK. I know France like the back of my hand. This is my home. My wife is Fre...

Re: A new low for British Government

You keep talking about UK politics. Why ? Why care ? For a start, a large majority of the members of this forum are in a position where what happens, and what IS happening, with UK politics will have a lasting and possibly detrimental effect on their lives and livelihoods. You don't work or have mo...

I have the right to speak.

You keep talking about UK politics.
I think you might want to reflect on both of those statements.

Re: 1.5 million passengers stuck in the French railway ststions

In terms of your first point, you pay tax everywhere. Primarily through consumption. It is an average of course. Some households pay more, some less. Certainly, and not all tax is raised from households. The point I was trying to introduce is that statistics are presented like that to stoke resentm...
