Allegedly from the 'Spectator ' magazine in Blighty, this article paints a nasty picture which BoJo and the SAGE/NERVTAG/SPI-B mob would be well advised to study.

Bearing in mind BoJo has just pissed off the UK Plod by denying them a pay rise, many are out of action self-isolating at home due to 'pinging', we are still short of 20,000 coppers and others are fed up with being asked to prevent public protests which are actually still a RIGHT in the UK, though not for much longer as the Soviet system becomes more entrenched.

"FRENCH RESISTANCE (not an oxymoron)

‘The manager of an attraction park in France was reportedly assaulted on Sunday after he denied entry to a customer. It’s alleged the man lost his rag when he was turned back because he didn’t have a valid Covid passport. It is unlikely to be the last such incident.

In the space of a fortnight, the atmosphere in France has turned toxic. A hospital in Saint-Étienne was invaded on Monday by 60 demonstrators, mainly medical professionals, opposed to the measure that will force them to vaccinate or be suspended without pay. That is also a strike at a Lyon hospital that will start tomorrow.

Elsewhere cinemas, theme parks and fitness centres have been labelled ‘collaborators’ for their participation in the government’s Covid Passport scheme. Attendance is in freefall, to the delight of the protestors, who are boycotting all venues involved in the scheme, including, from Sunday, restaurants and bars. They don’t care about the economic implications for those employed in the entertainment and hospitality industries. Don’t blame us, they say, blame the government.

Politicians and celebrities have also been singled out, including the comedian Jean-Marie Bigard, who has cultivated a controversial image over the years. He promised his fans he would never perform where a Covid Passport was required, but last week he changed his mind. There was an immediate backlash with Bigard condemned as a ‘traitor’. In the end, the gig on the Côte-d’Azur was cancelled for fear the theatre would be besieged by hostile fans.

The media have borne the brunt of the growing fury. Journalists from two broadcasters have been attacked for being ‘collabos’, including a couple from France Television who were set upon by an angry mob in Marseille on Saturday.

As the resistance grows, Macron may come to regret his martial rhetoric
The media are targeted because many protestors regard them as the mouthpiece of a government that has not concealed its derision for those opposed to the vaccine or any other of its Covid measures.

Gabriel Attal, the government spokesman, has labelled protestors ‘stroppy and defeatist… satisfied if they remain in chaos and inactivity’, while last week a government advisor gloated that the aim of the Covid Passport was to force the unvaccinated into leading ‘a ***** life’.

In the days after 12 July when Macron informed the nation of his plans for a Covid Passport, it appeared his tough stance had cowed the French into compliance. A record 900,000 people were jabbed on 19 July and Macron emboldened other EU leaders to follow his example.

Now the President and his government are increasingly alarmed at the scale of the resistance to his Covid Passport. Last Saturday 168 demonstrations drew around 170,000 protestors, an impressive figure given that the French traditionally don’t take to the streets in July. There has been the odd exception, such as 1789.

I attended the largest of the protests as an observer, joining a throng of many thousands in central Paris. It was organised by the Patriots, the party formed by Florian Philippot, the former deputy of the National Front, who is standing in next year’s presidential election.

Covid has rejuvenated the political career of Philippot and he was in his element on Saturday as he addressed the crowd, of whom a sizeable number were from ethnic minorities. One can assume that many in the audience had little in common with Philippot ideologically other than their opposition to the Covid Passport and forced vaccination.

‘Resistance’ was the watchword of Philippot’s address as he exhorted the crowd to remember the words of Charles de Gaulle, that: ‘Difficulty attracts the man of character, for it is by embracing it that he finds fulfilment.’

The wartime analogy is apposite in the eyes of Philippot and his followers because 80 years after the Vichy Regime it is Macron’s Vaccine Regime that must be resisted.

Philippot received the loudest cheer when he alluded to the President’s declaration of war on Covid in March 2020. ‘Macron says he’s at war,’ Philippot thundered. ‘OK, Macron will have his war.’ The crowd loved that. They shook their clenched fists and waved their French flags, some of which were adorned with the Cross of Lorraine, the wartime symbol of the Free French forces.

During the Occupation of France, a poster displayed in every village and town asked ‘Êtes-Vous en Règle?’ It was a reminder to always have one’s papers in order, ready for inspection at any moment by a zealous Vichy apparatchik. This, according to Philippot, is now Macron’s France, a country of oppression and tyranny, a country of ‘show me your papers or else’."

So how long before the 'French disease' crosses the English Channel with the same consummate ease as an African illegal migrant with cash to spend?

Getting EU CE approval for export of "the blade" has become almost impossible since allegedly we left the EU but perhaps the demand in UK will compensate for lost foreign income... :-bd

There are some horrific statistics on European immigration at the start of this video quoted by this very civilised Frenchman which should cause some consternation amongst the ruling classes who appear to be blind and deaf to the unrest amongst the revolting indigenous peasants of all countries in the EUssr;

If one added the letters 'u' & 'e' and deleted one of the 'l's then you'd be correct. But alas...

Better luck next time.

I trust you like me were shocked at the historical totals for immigration over the years or did your attempt at red-herring dragging distract you from the gunsight?

As I try to stay awake after an excellent lunch, my mind drifts-as it does regularly-to La Belle France, just across the water from Dover and the illegals' landing grounds.

If this example of Caucasians (mostly) revolting against their rulers, I wonder if our lot in Cobra or wherever they do the wargaming are at all concerned that the French 'disease' might spread as rapidly across the water as do the latest versions of the plague;



I have lost count of the current "scariant" designed to keep the fear levels topped up but I'm concerned that with approx 10,000 SarsCov1984 variants drifting around in nature we will soon run outa letters from the Greek alphabet for designation.

I imagine the consternation in SAGE/NERVTAG/SPI-B when they arrive at the letter "Omega".

"Omegawd, what'll we do now for the brand new scariant from Ulan Bator?!?!" :-o

A minor point here: President Marcon promised everything and (unsurprisingly) delivered nothing. Hence people revolting against him instead of waiting quietly to vote him out of the office.

In keeping with politicos everywhere, so no change there then.

Apparently the Frog plod were having some difficulty in controlling the protesters despite their regular brutal tactics in crowd control.

And in a report from Berlin;

"Protesters have not been taking police intimidation lying down, and the police appear to have lost self control a few times, being unnecessarily aggressive to protesters – punching them in the face and kidneys when they are pinned to the ground, and using pepper spray indiscriminately. Several times the protesters have charged the police cordons just to get along the streets and the police have just had to step aside because of the sheer numbers coming at them". [-X

It is not necessary to inform us that French are revolting against something. The final two words are superfluous.

Yet again it’s happening, though if the same happened in Blighty the BBC and other MSM would avoid reporting it;

I wonder how those in formerly WW2 occupied Europe will react to the old challenge “Ihre papiere, bitte”!? [-X

The French Revolution, 2021, Part 94 in a series of 100,000 and this chap’s career prospects may now be in question;

I wonder if/when any of the UK military very senior orifices will break ranks and pen a similar address to the Pig Dictator and his acolytes?

The French Revolution, 2021, Part 95 in a series of 100,000;

Time now to stock up on the popcorn and lay in the bottles of beer (Corona Beer of course!)

What a pity the British truckers, the remaining half dozen, can’t get fired up enough to bring the Westmonster traffic to a halt.

But it would appear they love their jobs too much;

So maybe militancy is lurking in UK after all?

So if you don’t accept the experimental emergency use authorisation only mRNA inadequately-trialled medical intervention, then you and yours will go hungry?

Time for them to copy and mass manufacture whichever examples of the “Blade” which remain in their museums.

An excellent measure on behalf of the food store. The vaccine is adequately tested in hundreds of millions of people and if a person chooses to pretend to be wiser than teams of specialists he or she must face the music. I firmly believe that measures should be taken to render the life of those refusing the vaccine. And not allowing them to visit such a store will drive the message home.

Marcon on the other hands delivers new level of incompetence every day.

Meanwhile, away from the vaccine argument :((

#374 I would go further. Bring back the ducking stool and the stocks for those refusing to be vaccinated. Play Barry Manilow songs at them. If still refusing after a week they should be burned at the stake. Large numbers of conspiracy theorists could be tied to one of Mr. Musk's excellent rockets and fired into space. Time we got serious with these unconscionable c*nts refusing vaccine, catching CV, and taking up valuable places in ICUs. .

Someone has just said to me, referring to a typical Covid symptom, that large numbers of French have lost their sense of taste. I riposted "how would they know? "

The ‘Allo Allo’ nation have been relatively quiet of late when it comes to motorised protests, though plenty of pedestrian demonstrations have occurred since the ‘plague’ struck and the ridiculous measures were wheeled out.

Now instead of farmers on tractors it’s the heavy metal of the truckers en France, so things might get sweaty for the Micron and his minions.

Will a French trucker listen to and obey the word ‘ban’?

One of the bete noirs (other than a French football player on a million pounds salary a month kicking his pet cat) is about to be scrapped. The French (Le Micron) may do away with the Covid pass at the ending of March. Nothing to do with elections coming up.
