  1. they shot them both, they were whisked off by Securitata helicopter, they thought to safety but they were taken away to be shot.
  2. Ceaucescu was shot, Mussolini was hung from a lamppost. They got ride of Ceaucescu because his cronies were fed up with wearing hair shirt and pretending to be good communists, they wanted to enjoy the wealth they had acquired. It was a palace coup.

    It's as bad as a GNU v3 license!

    Not too bad. Avoid Étoile and some of the main roads. Since the velib bike scheme went into meltdown I don't do it.

    For schools the choices are... erm very limited unless you want to learn French... and don't think English kids are going to be fluent after 6 months, or even 6 years.

    Yeah, but you do get Ticket Restaurant :-) Given that living costs are as high as London you'd basically have to live in a caravan in the Bois de Boulogne to survive on 50K. I get 40K in the sticks and it is a bit of struggle once NI and Tax is deducted.

  9. Last winter it pissed me off to see the people in the local council houses with their windows open all day while we were at 15C. 50% of my leccy bill is taxes, a big chunk to fund poor people to heat the outside world.

    L'express counts 4200 banking jobs going to Paris and another 20,000 ancillary jobs. Only problem is, no-one wants to move to Paris ! People are leaving London banks for elsewhere rather than be forced to move to the French capital. This is causing a staffing headache. Amongst Paris problems: endless transport strikes, pollution, no housing, no school places and sky high taxes. https://lexpansion.lexpress.fr/actualite-economique/les-revenants-du-brexit_2033911.amp.html

    Not in this case, the 2km detour is 5 minutes longer and never a car on either road. Seems to be a bug. If I actually drive on the road Google doesn't like it will then route from there, so it knows the road exists plus it must have detected me driving up it.

    Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    You'd have thought parents would have gotten over their Oliver fixation. As for different spellings, that's down to it being a foreign name and different viewpoints on how it should be spelt, in the case of Mohammet it all comes to the same thing. Although it is more a reflection of the Ropers lack of imagination than anything else.
