Frenchonomics “à la #Royal” in Poitou-Charentes

Please, some real customers should buy the “made in Poitou” small electric car. Not only to keep the former Heuliez workers and factory going on in spite of the going getting real tough for everybody. But to keep Ségolène Royal busy around there.

Some additional e-reading may be needed about France, French Cars, French Countryside, French Gentry, French Royal(s) or even more important issues. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching the weather forecasts on TV and let others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times and the Economist).

            

Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).

The (#Green) #French should soon be (Back) at Work for a (to) #Change (#France)

Fifty-Fifty, fair enough, but does it work ?

Everybody in France (and other places where people think a sinking Europe is a bad customer and could be an awful debtor) cross fingers, that after their never ending French elections and summer holiday, the French are ready for real work, now.

French Lagarde (IMF Boss) & French Lamy (WTO Boss)

Everybody, even out of France, expects the French Government is seriously at work, now. Not just playing “serious games” …

Cécile Duflot, August 2012, at French Green Summer Camp. Was elected “Député” of Paris thanks to Socialist/Ecologist agreement at 2012 French presidential election. Currently Minister of Housing in François Hollande Government

Not like the French handball champions who deserved a long holiday after their gold medal celebrated by getting drunk and devastating a TV studio where the were interviewed, neither like their national football team that has become the shame of France and laughing stock of the planet with or without playing, nor like their patriots who were not in London to support France at the Games, but are real red government carpet fans who got free tickets for the one way plane or train to London the Oympics as almost every French tax-exiled in England everybody in London …

Like the French President.

Well, well, well …

But not like the French Ecologists, whose boss is quite desperate at their annual 3-day meeting somewhere in the French countryside …

Not well, not well, not well …

… as he sees the naked Green France.

Well, well, well …

The Green France with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or not decided about the glasses …

Well …

… or whatever works, with or without glasses …

Definitely not well …

… or whoever walks talking romance or talks walking romance all the time instead of working …

As well as can be …

France, so Green, so French, So Good, So Fresh … and hopefully back at work soon(er or later).

Never mind … it’s just Grass …

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green” (but not vice-versa).

Let’s Dance and Celebrate Queen, Country, the Sixties, England and Rock n’ Roll Tonite !

HM the Queen was fair-play enough, to forgive the Pistols who spoilt a previous Jubilee of hers (1977) and Freddie who was quite outrageaous too (Wembley 86), and great enough to organize a revival of the Swingin’ London. (Live on BBC Radio2).

Of course, it was quite logical to celebrate 60 years of reign with the music of the sixties, and to invite both former Beatle Sir Paul (McCartney) and former eccentric Sir Elton John, but all must be grateful for her inviting beautiful Kylie Minogue (and Annie Lennox and several other great singers).

As regards Rock n’ Roll tonite, those who think they may not like watching 60 year old  British ladies twisting and shouting like in the golden era of the mini-skirt (and other beauties England invented in the Sixties and a few hundred years around) …

… may just listen to Madness on the radio on BBC Radio 2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_two/listenlive (anyway, the show on TV may only be watched on BBC One for internet user in theUK).

And those who would like to read on the Internet while listening to the show, may e-read some French eBooks about changes in the current years (which are and/or may become quite “Rock n’ Roll” indeed in many other places than re-swingin’ London).

    

“Where there’s a Willis away” … 1000 Ships, plus Cutty Sark, for Queen and Country

Last time so many ships were seen on the Thames River was 350 years ago, long before the Empire was built with united energy and intelligence, then preserved with great Royal talent. Even before the Cutty Sark sailed  first. Bravo @ all in Britain.

The old Lady (the Cutty Sark, of course, honni soit qui mal y pense) will be happy to hear what so many boats have to say about so many seas since so many years, all the more since she can’t herself sail “odlschool way” for Queen and Country anymore.

One may not always agree with the Brits, especially when French, but one must admit they did a great job at sea over centuries, even if one may regret not to see the Queen’s picture under the sun of the other side … of the world, in Hong-Kong too. Anyway, please Click on picture to hear “Rule Britannia”.

To wait for the naval extravaganza, the James Clavell novell “Tai-Pan” novel  is as close to pefect as possible. Otherwise, to read in French about less British changes in the world as it goes nowadays “the other side(s)”, please click on pictures.
