But I shouldn't say that.
Freedom will be over in a few hours...
The french have a 'thing' about sego, i heard.
rather than blame racaille (spelling?).
old people blaming racaille > young people searching job ( at least in sheer numbers... )
that will happen tonight...
i don't hate paris or anything
it's pretty cool
but yeah, les quartiers are probably going to be on fire tonight unless all the poor people forgot to watch TV
i'm moderately drunk, wow.
Don't know how my pupils will react tomorrow...
or do you teach?
i hope you're like Sam Jackson in "187"
don't get stabbed though, you're alright
In a difficult place.
was like chosing between plague and cholera...
I couldn't vote.
I wouldn't have anyway.
before getting send to :
1. their country of origin
I'm not allowed to say otherwise now.
I hope there is some backlash, I need another excuse to skive revision
in a few hours...
not sure what will happen in Poitiers. Might go over to the hotel de ville later to see what happens
will be quite happy...
Apart from all the students !
that one made me smile :)
but the majority of the population are students here, that's why it made me smile
I'm waiting for him to come on TV and just let out a massive cackle and say "FOOLS!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"
the emperor from star wars.
Not any longer !
to force my 2-years old son to go to bed today...
Guys, things arent going to be the way they were ever again. Global warming IS happening and being king canute about it or making token gestures isnt going to stop it.
more importantly, will this make it worse for me when I got to paris in a few weeks?
thats the problem.
yes it will be worse for you, becaus sarko sucks.
is guilty of these things too.
Loads of people are round Bastille, and the police are putting on their battle gear outside my appartment. Bizarre
will go for a wander and report back
are now blocking the road, outside. Will just stick my head out of the door instead
needed some benny hill music to it, especially when one of them fell
Youre lucky to be in a country where people arent afraid to express themselves in an active form, even if it is violent.
You HOPE there is a riot?
You talk about it as if it is a Sunday jaunt.
Sarko getting in starts bad thats all.
like if it won't be his car which will burn tonight...
i dont drive anyway.
Just had a walk around, really quite amusing. Looks like they have brought out some of the oldest, most grimy banners known to man, INSURRECTION, 1968, that sort of thing.
The only thing of note that they have done so far is to divert a coachload of elderly German tourists who happened to arrive at the Bastille roundabout at just the wrong time
explain their policies and stuff to me? BBC says that "immigrants are wearing Sarkozy badges" which doesn't make much sense if he's a hardline Conservative? And if Royal is more socialist why do people dislike her too?
things there is not much real difference b/w the two candidates in terms of policies etc. Both are probably quite evil but one attempts to present a pseudo veneer of 'niceness'
Like Lyle said above, Royal pretty much lost it, when her attempt to play the gender card and backfired with the elder demographic.
The protests that are going on outside my windows, look to have been started by anacronistic SWP types and their crustie comrades-in-arms, who probaby would have protested whatever the result, why waste the banners, the had produced.
They have been joined in the last hour or so by the younger Royal supporting contingent.
Watching it has been quite amusing, the only horrible thing is the level sheer racism exhibited by the police.
I watched the blockade line from my window for about ten minutes and the only people stopped and questioned were black.
Wonder if 'protesters blocking metro station' is a valid excuse for not going to work tomorrow
but 'police blocking metro station' is.
may as well start off on the right side, ish.
From now, future is for people who wake up early and don't count how many hours they do.
The noise died down about 12:30. The Bastille monument is covered in graffiti, apart from that everything seems to be back to normal
But degrading a national monument which is a symbol of freedom ? NO !
The main grafitti was in large red paint,
'Sarko le fils de macro'
Which was translated for me as Sarko son of a pimp
Correct me if i'm wrong
Coming at la fleche d'or tonight ?
Why not, Twilight Sad & Logh for free. What time are you intending to get there?
They seem to have stopped printing the stage times on the website
so around 9pm.
I'll call first just to be sure !
just the criteria they're given at police school to find criminals!
I'm going to Paris next Sunday for a week. Can't wait.
i thought this was going to be about sarkyfox.
