Well, it does not rain all the time. I can certainly say that the Bretons have less sunshine that the rest of France. A bit like at his cousin Great Britain.
2) All Bretons are alcoholic

How could they be alcoholic if they only drink cider?
3) All Britons wear a Bigouden

Well, corporate tax is impôt sur les sociétés which literally means “Tax on the companies”.

PS: one of the highest in the world. I am sure the new president will take care of it like Trump in the USA. 🙂

Emmanuel Macron was elected France’s youngest president last Sunday. Beating far-Right rival Marine Le Pen in a positive result (more than 3/4 of votes) that will have far-reaching consequences for Brexit and Europe. Despite the vast margin of the final result, Le Pen’s score nonetheless marked a historic high for the French far right. She has taken 11m votes, double that of her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, when he reached the presidential run-off in 2002 against Mr. Chirac.

The results are even more dramatic in London were more than 95% of French Londoners voted for Mr. Macron.

Though Mr. Macron called for unity, hundreds of protesters gathered in the Place de la République last Monday to demonstrate against him. The reality that one-third of voters chose neither Macron nor Le Pen, with 12 million abstaining and 4.2 million spoiling ballot papers.

Despite her defeat, Le Pen’s score made her leader of “the biggest opposition force” in France which gives a whole new face to French politic.

Now, new challenges are heading up for Macron, with a strong hard left and far right, he will struggle to win a parliamentary majority for his new political movement En Marche! (On the Move!). We wish him all the best and hope for the best future for My Douce France, Le pays de mon enfance.
