The French Huntin', Shootin' and Fishin' Party presidential candiate

Or more formally, Chasse, pêche, nature et traditions (CPNT). Frédéric Nihous, for it is he, has told high profile French green, Nicolas Hulot where to get off, in fairly clear terms. He will not sign his eco pact, and "we will not go back to the stone age, we are not on an Indian reservation". A late breaking candidate for if not Man of the Year, then at least Gaul of the Year?

Yes I have often suspected that the Green desire to return to the woodfire and bodkin has a bizarre melange of motives.

Partly they just like "natural" things . It makes them feel pure.

I like nice shiny things and would like to burn members of the Green Party.
Provided the remnant was tidily deposited in a green box they would approve .

I guess the beards would burn quite well. Incidentally, the Swedish national testing institute has been running fire tests on fake Santa beards and found some are dangerous. More here

now this Is why i have sneaking love of the Gaul , that and his propensity to lob bricks at the coppers.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 12:15 pm

They are not a bad bunch, bar their appalling elected leaders.  



Anonymous Anonymous said... 12:16 pm

You never can be too careful these days C and the Swedish institute needs to justify its handouts with worthy output.

So who is your vote for Ghoul of the Year then?

My vote is for Patsy Hewitt, pale and scary for 365 days.

CU - I think you could be on to something with old 'very, very regular bowel movements' herself.  



Blogger Rigger Mortice said... 1:03 pm

C,any chance of some coverage of the Turkmenistan fella who's dead.

will he make the despots hall of fame or not?

I should probably ask Hitch but he has no blog and you do know an awful lot.How bad was he? and if he was that bad why didn't they give him Afghanistan?  



Blogger Croydonian said... 1:08 pm

Rigger - He was an absolute monster, if not an especially murderous one. I took a pop at him a while back, but I think that he may well merit a return visit.  



Anonymous peter hitchens said... 1:40 pm

Fairs fair as far as despots go he didnt indulge in genocide ( a demerit)but did name everything after himself (or his mother)banned many books and closed libraries (a good move)banned gold teeth , beards and ballet not onlyt that but he a morbid hatred of midwives.
I shall miss him.

Albania under Hoxha banned beards, flares and Americans....  



Anonymous peter hicthens said... 1:48 pm

Sensible policies mr c
they also worshipped norman wisdom.

Hoxha replaced King Zog - surely the most bizarre onomastic succession in Europe.

love the new profile C.

Why can't I see it on my computer? It flashes up when I tune in, then disappears.

verity like me you 'll probably have to scroll right down to the bottom to see it and the links.  



Anonymous verity said... 5:03 pm

Thanks, Rigger. You are correct.

Very nice, Croydonian!  



Blogger Croydonian said... 5:16 pm

Glad you approve folks.

Albania under Hoxha banned beards, flares and Americans. Yes, and the Bible too. Although Norman Wisdom was held in high regard by the chaps in the Politburo. Go figure....  



Anonymous peter hitchens said... 8:15 pm

norman wisdom now lives in a home for retired actors and is an un witting sex pest  



Blogger Croydonian said... 8:23 pm

Have I told the 'Sagesse Normand' tale before? I cannot find any evidence that I have, but have nagging doubts.  



Anonymous verity said... 8:47 pm

No. Go on, then.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 8:56 pm

Way back lost in the mists of time, an MEP from northern France was boring on about something or other, before concluding 'Nous avon besoin de la sagesse normande', rendered, naturally, as 'we need norman wisdom'. Cue corpsing by British and Hibernian MEPs and a confused Frenchman.  



Blogger Rigger Mortice said... 11:09 pm

norman wisdom lives on the andreas road between Ramsey and Andreas on the isle of man

he generaly makes a nuisance of himself by thinking he's funny but is actually so dull it's painful.

he apparently puts on performances in the doctors surgery,the HSBC on st pauls sqaure,in fact almost anywhere he can get a captive audience of ill old people or kids in prams.
