    So are we saying there are no self-satisfying, corrupt officials in the UK? At least the French say it how it is in general!

    Anyone who earns more than 16k is a crook in the uk lol. Average wage is still less than £300 a week in truth.

    The French do it better than us though. Good luck to them. :D

    Does France have a strong human rights commission that will take the French state (or private companies) to the necessary domestic and European courts on behalf of individuals who have been discriminated against to force compliance with national and European human rights laws?

    Der Spiegal today, in English, please read……….it may explain things better for the non-French speakers, who can’t follow the story in the French media.

    But if France is correctly applying EU law as suggested earlier in the thread, why are they in trouble with the European Commission?

    Because they’re applying that law mostly on the basis of nationality/ethnicity rather than across the board. That’s why they denied they were focusing on the Roma and why the leaked memo saying they were focusing on the Roma has been picked up on. If they had a policy of deporting anyone from other EU countries that came here without work and wasn’t officially employed and couldn’t support themselves here (without working on the black) they’d probably not be in such trouble.

    And there’d be a lot of Brits going back across the channel with 300 euros in their pockets! :wink:

    The situation has so many echoes with the behaviour of the Nazi party in the 30’s. :( I’m glad the EU is kicking off with the French state about it. They deserve the condemnation.

    The answer is NO. How many weeks did it take……………………….

    Please read the aforementioned petition and read the names and signatories of the signatories. One thing is clear amongst the comedians/comediennes, authors, actors, etc is that there is no-one with a rural occupation.

    The pontifications that come out of the EU politicians mouths are just that as they have not had occasion to experience life affected by “les inactifs” and the undesirable squatters.

    When did the Third Reich round up people and give them a square meal, three hundred Euros and reasonable comfortable transport to their home country? The tales I heard was that it was mainly French nationals that were rounded up, put into Drancy before being put onto cattle trucks a sent off for the “final solution”, often as a result of collaboration and stories put about by other French persons.

    Emotive outpourings do no good except inflame the uneducated into ill advised actions.

    Now I’m puzzled. What on earth does having a “rural occupation” have to do with anything?

    I’ve studiously avoided any use of the “N” word, personally, but I’m still curious as to how it has been decided that an entire ethnic group are undesirable, inherently dishonest and so on. There are, in the article linked earlier by MurkyBuckets, some fairly concrete examples of those who don’t seem to fit that particular mould. This policy, however, does not seem to discriminate in that particular sense. If you’re Roma, you’re out.

    And, as an aside, I wonder how likely it is that if you’re constantly told you’re bad, unwanted, worthless, workshy and dirty, you become a self-fulfilling prophecy?
