Fun and Games on the other side of the Ditch.

While sniffing around on Le Monde's site, I found an old story about a hatchet job done by a French hack on Mr Tony. Since Blair is being attacked from the left, there's not much I'm in agreement with, but it does include some exciting new insults etc: "Diabolical vacuity", "the state is the victim of a Faustian pact between the private and public sectors" and "The UK is the USSR". Ho ho, very satirical.


Meanwhile, yet more evidence that the French just do not understand the internet, as evidenced by this tale from The Register. Now the French luxury goods companies are gunning for ebay over knock off Louis Vuitton hand luggage et al. As anyone who has ever visited France will know, every market, in every town (or so it seems) has sad-eyed Malians / Senegalese hawking exactly the same stuff. Still, those fellows must be a lot harder to control by legal process than ebay.
