Britons Want To Be French

Mon Oct 16, 2006 11:41 pm

Small excerpt that can be found here
http://www.buzzflash.com/articles/mediawatch/106


HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED: BRITONS WANT TO BE FRENCH. A famous wit once observed there were two reasons for the British to dislike the French. Firstly, they are too logical and secondly they own France - "a country which we have always judged to be much too good for them". How times have changed. Now it seems that Britain's middle-class love affair with all things Gallic has reached the point where a fifth of Britons now actually want to be French. A study of attitudes towards our closest neighbour has found that Britons would prefer to work in France or retire to France above any other country, including their own. The ICM survey found that if given a choice of nationality, just over half of Britons under 50 would retain their British passport. But 22 per cent would rather ditch their British status altogether and opt to become French.
...
The findings come amid an upsurge of Francophilia in Britain. Britons now own £4.6bn of property in France and have bought some 51,000 homes across the Channel since 2000.

The last French census in 2004 recorded a 50 per cent increase over five years in the number of Britons who live permanently in France to 100,000. About 500,000 Britons spend more than six weeks in France every year.

I think more and more people are recognising that France has a lot to offer. I want to be French too. Vive la France !
Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.

No way I want to be French. OK, if all those posh toffs want to go across the channel, good riddance to them, leaves more space for us lot.

Anyway, they only want to go over there to get a hot dripping baguette in their mouths. They're welcome to it!

Much to my shame and disgust, I have to disagree with you re the unreliable bit. Other than my dear Skoda I don't think I've had such a reliable, economical and useful vehicle. It's the first French car I've ever owned, but I am tempted to have another one - although a bit more comfort and room would be nice Big grin

Yes we should - the Court Circular has reported that Dame Edna Banco is on an official State Visit to the Colonies of Oceania to visit her old friend the Australian Cultural Attache at Large, Sir Les QFF. Accompanying her are long time companian Madge (from New Zealand) and her 7 Pekinese Fluffy, Wuffy, Scruffy, Duffy, Huffy, Stuffy and Puffy.

Damn your eyes Frenchy!! You shall be forever condemned to rot in the nasty, hot sunlight of the South of France, to drink disgusting, full bodied French wine and eat cordon bleu dinners!! Wait, that's what you do anyway! DOH!!!!!

Mint is compulsory for eating Lamb (not that you lot would know about that!), fish n' chips is the food of the Gods (or common Northerners anyway - they think they are gods!), Charlie is a wonderful future king (just cos you beheaded all your royalty!) and who wants to go in the sea?

Sure. It's why you named yourself "Femme" instead of Frau, Fraulein, Chick, Chica, Muchacha, Woman, Girl, or Pige. You precisely chose the language of this nationality you dislike.

Just cook it alone, pouring a bit of salted water on it in the oven from time to time, and serve it with beans. That's all ! No need to add taste-hiding stuff.
