I see that Michael O'Leary is at it again - aiming for free flights within five years.Apparently they will be able to do this by sharing income from airport shops and restaurants so he'll be relying on those vending machines at Carcassonne then, don't think so!Better if he put the Carcassonne to East Midlands flight back on in winter.
HI allI am wondering if somebody knows of a package that offers limitless internet access in the countryside where there are no cables and most probably there won't be any time soon. At the moment we are with Connexion verte (satellite connection 20G a month download/upload) but it is a struggle to keep it within the limit every month. They have higher limits available, but I fear that would be struggle too as soon we would get used to it et voila! in the same situation again. Hence, we are looking for something that allows us limitless use of internet and does not require optical cables. Does anybody know of something available in France? If so, can you please let me know the details... Thank you. Good evening to all. Ivana
Posters warning that “migrants are coming” and stating they are being “imposed” on French people have been put up in Beziers where they are set to receive 40 displaced people from Calais.The poster, which features a darkened image of middle-eastern and African men beneath a cathedral alongside the words: “The state is imposing them on us: That’s it, they are coming”, was put up in 100 areas of the town last week. The mayor of Béziers, Robert Ménard, who was elected with the support of far-right political party Front National, launched the poster campaign in response to government plans for 40 people from the ‘jungle’ camp in Calais to be received by the town, and the subsequent expansion of Béziers' reception centres.It's a disgrace that such racial hatred should prevail. Surely, we should do all we can to show our distaste and support the refugees as much as we can?
Just read an article about the discussions in French Parliament today on Brexit that was headlined as "Cataclysmic Consequences of Brexit for Brits in France". Pretty scary but read the article and it says that will happen "unless reciprocal arrangements are put in place". So nothing new there then as that was always going to be the case and, since London is the fifth largest city in France or whatever it is in terms of French population, I suppose it is a fair bet that reciprocal arrangements will be made.Are we worried yet?

Hi, My husband and myself are going to spend most of the year in the Languedoc and would like advice. We are both artists and would like advice on what area/town to base ourselves? We did live in Pezenas a few years ago and loved it but property prices there are so expensive. A friend suggested St. Chinian. We would really appreciate and advice or suggestions that anyone may have to offer. It would be great to hear your views. Thank you
