Depressed, feeling a slump, then remember Lift = Coefficient of Lift x 1/2 x ρ x V-squared X S!

Protests up at the Frontier from French insisting on their right to free and unimpeded crossing of EU borders. The fact that both countries at the Frontier have severely restricted access has not been able to find a foothold in their miniscule brains. I await with great interest footage from Paris tomorrow as yellow vesters rise up and demonstrate their right to catch Covid and spread it around...

I predict a dramatic drop in ffrench infection numbers over the next 5 days.

Did anyone notice the 59,000 case error this week? The numbers were rivised up yesterday.

I don't believe any numbers. My breakfast TV has given three different numbers of vaccine doses arriving here on three successive days, how many have already been vaccinated (80% in the target age group), how many will be vaccinated over Easter, how many doses on order, all compete and utter fantasy IMHO. Complete fiction, unverifiable, uncheckable and nothing to do with the reality I see around me.

OFSO, in no way was I suggesting the reported numbers over the next 5 days would be accurate, just that they would decline.

Macron on TV again, gibbering and raging and rattling the bars of his cage like the demented little monkey he is. Once again it is the perfidious English who have brought glorious France to its knees.

In a shock announcement the Micron has said that 5 people have died from strokes just weeks after travelling on the Paris Metro.

Although what the French laughably call a lockdown started yesterday, the restriction to within ten kilometres of your home only starts on Tuesday, so as to give everyone a chance to travel and spread the virus as much as possible. Highest number of new cases in France this morning since the pandemic started last year.

France over 100,000 CV deaths. If you believe their statistics. Still to experience the first Bovine Whatsit death. If you believe their statistics. Lots of cows put down due to "Broken Leg Syndrome". Our local supermarket chain won't buy French beef. Ah well...

The French government has threatened to punish active soldiers who signed an open letter by 25 retired generals warning President Emmanuel Macron the country is headed for "civil war".

A number of serving defence force members are believed to have signed the letter published last week in the right-wing Valeurs Actuelles magazine, which warned that "laxist" policies would result in chaos requiring "the intervention of our comrades on active duty in a perilous mission of protection of our civilizational values".

"The hour is grave, France is in peril," the retired generals wrote, adding that failure to act against the "suburban hordes" -- a reference to residents of the mainly immigrant areas that ring French cities -- and other unnamed groups who "scorn our country" will lead to "civil war" and deaths "in the thousands".

The letter comes as candidates begin jockeying for position on immigration, security and the spread of radical Islam in the run-up to the 2022 presidential election.

An Ifop poll published in the Journal du Dimanche newspaper on Sunday showed security and the fight against terrorism among voters' top priorities after a new wave of jihadist attacks, including the October 2020 beheading of a schoolteacher who showed his pupils cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen, whom polls show likely to face off against Emmanuel Macron next year in a re-run of the 2017 race, told the retired generals she shared their sentiments and invited them to back her campaign.

"I invite you to join us in taking part in the coming battle, which is the battle of France," she wrote in a response to the letter published in Valeurs Actuelles.

Le Pen was widely criticized by her opponents on both the left and the right for her overtures to the soldiers behind what the left-wing daily Liberation described as a "call to sedition".

On Tuesday, she told France Info that while she shared the soldiers' diagnosis of a country afflicted by "lawless areas, crime, self-hatred and our leaders' rejection of patriotism" she agreed that "these problems can only be solved by politics."

Two bits of conflicting news. France is starting to reopen, and they have the first case of Indian Virus.

That's all right then. Open from 9 June so pop over for your fortnight's holiday and go home on 23 June when the quarantine rules have been relaxed here.

What could possibly go wrong?

Post #352 - a Harris Poll last week of the public in France found that 58% supported the Generals, 74% said French society was collapsing, and 45% said France will soon have a civil war.

At least the French intend to do something about it.
The Brits will tolerate anything, or pretend there isn't even a problem even as they are subsumed.

Ooh la la - the Micron gets slapped. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/emmanuel-m ... =120857624

I liked this tweet:

"I express my strong condemnation of Emmanuel Macron for using his face as a weapon against the hand of an innocent citizen. French citizens have a right to defend themselves against such shocking and unjustified aggressions."

I don't think that there was physical contact (though there was an attempt).
They confirmed that a man had attempted to slap him.
