The Judgement of Paris

A shock survey by IFOP reveals that Parisians are not very generous, in that having polled the Plain People of France, the Paris region was bottom of the list for those certain to give to a charity in the next three months, at 17%.

South Westerners were the most generous at 31%, followed by North Easterners at 26% and South Easterners were the only others to exceed the average (23%) at 24%. Auvergnats, widely regarded as the Scots of France for their 'meanness', presumably fall within the SE category.

The rest of the survey is not particularly thrilling, but it is notable that the over 65s are the greatest givers, while there is an almighty disconnect between what 18-24 years old have done, and what they say that they will do - 29% gave in the last year, but 58% say that they will in the next quarter.

I was woken this morning by the radio apparently reporting that the Isle of Paris might be turned into a national park. I thought this was a very interesting idea but I was to be disappointed when my brain started functioning normally.

Reality is over-rated, isn't it?
