Reunion Island & France

Recommended Posts

Just seen some photos posted by someone I follow of the new motorway being built on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean East of Madagascar.

This piqued my curiosity once again and I have found out that it is probably the most expensive motorway per metre ever built in the world and it is on a circular shaped island that is only 25 miles in diameter or roughly the size of greater manchester. This 7 mile stretch has cost 1.7 Billion Euros to build.

Why is france so interested in spending so much money on a tiny island off one of the poorest parts of the world (Madagascar) in the middle of the vast nothingness of the Indian Ocean.

Is Reunion the future bolt-hole for the European Elite after they have sucked Europe dry and it turns in on itself.

I doubt it, all the French colonies are full of doleys and ROPers

Flee?? More likely they'll deport undesirables like you and I, much like Hitler wanted to send the Jews to Madagascar!

It is considered part of France as if it was on the mainland. I was looking into this a few months ago when I was - bored - researching some islands around the world after watching a film starring Spencer Tracy and Frank Sinatra.

I also looked into their tourism and considered which one was the nicest to live in. If you look at the below image you can see a nice stepping stone of islands representing runways all the way to the South Pole - so the French have a claim on Antartica.

      Sorry about the source link. Funny there's no HYS on this story.....
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-42484987
      So the World Chess authorities gave the current world championships to one of the most regressive countries in the world (a decision that is coming back now to bite them on the ass, although not nearly as much as it should). Anyone care to guess why this place was chosen?
      Isnt there going to be a footie tournament in this bit of the world soon? I wonder how that's going to pan out, too, and why they chose such an unsuitable place?

      Very interesting watch, two commissioners who voted against the repeal said that this was a prime example of corruption.

      MPs are employing their own family members
       
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-40709220
      One in five MPs continue to employ a member of their family using taxpayers' money despite the practice being banned for new members of Parliament.
      Of the 589 returning MPs, 122 have declared the employment of a relative in the latest Register of Members' Financial Interests.
      None of the 61 new MPs who secured their seats at the general election on 8 June are allowed to do so.
