France - No praying in Paris

No praying in Paris

Even more expensive
THE PRICE of foie gras is set to rocket in France once again this Christmas as the ravaged industry continues to suffer the effects of avian flu. Franceinfo estimates that 180 grams of foie gras will jump €4 in comparison to last year’s prices.

Economic improvement
FRENCH shoppers plan on average to spend more on online sales this Christmas compared to a year ago, the country’s Commerce Federation (Fevad) said on Tuesday, marking the latest sign of a gradual improvement in the economy.

What was he thinking?
A TOP OFFICIAL in France’s Socialist Party is facing a legal inquiry after he tweeted an image with anti-Semitic overtones against President Emmanuel Macron, sources close to the inquiry told the French press on Monday.

Another smoking ban
A FRENCH POLITICIAN has put forward the idea of banning smoking in films. Senator Nadine Grelet-Certenais has accused film-makers of advertising for the tobacco industries and has reignited the debate about whether smoking should appear on the big screen.
