    Part of his heightened controls on immigrants is a new law to make foreigners who want to join their families sit an exam on French language and values before leaving their countries.
    Farken hell, if that happened here you would have every jihadi and their pet dog or pig going bonkers over the gross violations of their brothers human rights!

    Good on the Frogs for having a bit of back bone!

    Only wish the UK would rediscover its back bone!

    Hmm Interesting - now we get Chuck Norris telling us that even the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys are better than us. Hey Chuck - you know where the airport is.

    Maybe cos they want a 14 bedroomed manor house set in 42 acres for less than the price of a 2-bed flat in central London?

    Or maybe they want their children to be able to go out without being stabbed.

    Or perhaps they want to be part of a community and have social interaction with their neighbours.

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    I'd rather live amongst normal French people than the assorted random riff-raf known as the British public.

    I doubt anyone wants interaction with the French.

    At clientco we have more French speakers than English - no wonder the project is a mess.
