This is my first comment on this blog, and all i have to say really is. Good on you France, your an inspiration to us all, i only wish that my government ( The Australian Labor Party ) would ban it too, but we all know that they are far too gutless and left wing to even think of doing such a thing.

The eyes of the world are upon you France, long live Europe !
