  1. Hmm... http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8145432.stm

    Seems to me the "youth" were just waiting for another pretext to loot and cause havoc. Thought Sarcozy & company would of had created an effected response plan after the last time.
     
  2. Says it all really. Scum.
     
  3. My Gawd looks like the end of Gallic civilization. Run, away, run away a handful of nasty Arabs are coming to shag us blue!

    Looks like a quiet night on the Shankill at this time of year. Sort of disturbance that would get half a paragraph on page four of the Belfast Telegraph. Why is it the French culture can't even produce a proper riot?

    This is just the lead up to 14th July, France's big holiday so the kids are kicking off and the news are having their ususal 'non-news' day.

    Happens most years same time, same thing.

    France will now be closed until 15th August when there is another public holiday!! And when France goes on holiday, they go on holiday. The country just shuts down for a month leaving just the bare neccessities.
