This composition I have copied and pasted from a facebook page specifically for RIFT people (Remain In France Together). Add to it that May day is also a hypocrite as she was in the Remain camp before the Referendum!

It is with sadness that we want to advise you not to travel on Saturday as we do not wish to add to that burden. It is our hope that... Continue reading

I find it hard to believe a turncoat - as TM is, having backed the Remain camp in the Referendum - but let's hope some of the content of this article is true, insofar as it affects us in France too. Is Hollande speaking out in this vein, does anyone know? Continue reading
