Voisins, everbody needs good voisins

Apart from, perhaps, the Bretons and the people of Champagne-Ardennes for whom 9% have relations with neighbours which are 'non-existent', whereas for Alsatians said relations are friendly for 58% of them. Insert joke about 'walkies' here.

For any readers intent on buying property Outre Manche, the way to win over neighbours in Brittany, Limousin, Midi-Pyrénées, Pays de la Loire and Lorraine is to be 'discreet' (40%+), while in Nord Pas De Calais, Haute Normandie, the Auvergne and Ile de France you will need to be 'polite'.

On the other hand, if you want to hack people off, make noise after 10 or on Sundays in Ile de France (36%), curtain twitch in Limousin (35%) and fail to say hello in Brittany (38%). It would appear that there is a plague of badly trained mutts in Champagne Ardenne, as 38% of its denizens most dislike neighbours with aggressive, noisy or dirty pets.

Being a Turk probably would not be very popular in the West, as another poll shows that 50% of Westerners (Brittany, PdlL, Poitou-Charentes and Normandy, I imagine) are against the Turks joining the EU.


Elsewhere, the polls suggest that the Socialists will lose ground in the Euro elections, but the new wave Trots look likely to wins seats, so a mixed bag.

However, maybe that is all a bit previous, as former PM Dominique de Villepin would seem to think that Sarko should tighten security around the Bastille, as he reckons there is 'a revolutionary risk' at the moment. Not that he's an attention whore with more than a touch of Ted Heath Syndrome. His solution would appear to be one of throwing money at the rioting classes.
