Farewell France, Thanks for the Frog Legs! By Richard Miller
Instead of reporting about the collapse of Sweden, a change of scenery, and this time it is France heading for the rubbish tip, but we all knew that, didn’t we?
“French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner’s recent revelation, discussed in the last hour, that “60 attacks have been foiled since 2013 and every week people are arrested,” recalled some statements of his predecessor Gérard Collomb, who is now mayor of Lyon, and who knows as much as anyone about France’s internal security situation. Collomb gave an interview in February 2018 which was only published in November of that year. Here is an excerpt: In your heart of hearts, how do you judge the security situation in France? Collomb: It’s very worrying. What I read every morning in notes from the police reflects a very pessimistic situation. The relations between people are very hard, people don’t want to live together… To what extent is immigration responsible for this? Collomb: Enormously so. It’s for that reason that, with Emmanuel Macron, we wanted to change the law… Your law only attacks illegal immigration. Legal immigration allows more than 200,000 people into the country each year… Collomb: It’s true. We’re doing it bit by bit. But that remains a problem… You think there is no more need for immigration in France? Collomb: “Yes, absolutely. You were speaking of vivre ensemble [living together] just now. What is happening? Collomb: Communities in France are engaging in conflict with one another more and more and it’s becoming very violent… What are you afraid of? Partition? Secession? Collomb: Yes, I’m thinking about that, that’s what worries me. How much time do we have before it’s too late? Collomb: I don’t want to create fear, but I think there’s very little time left. How much? Collomb: It’s difficult to estimate, but I would say that within five years the situation could become irreversible. Yes, we have five, six years to avoid the worst. Afterwards…”
That is surely optimistic, since the better argument is that the point of no return has already been met. Everyone is moving intro uncharted territory now … well, uncharted since the fall of ancient Rome. And we all know how that one played out.
