  1. "But now my President’s continued equivocation is unforgivable. Macron should shut up. Just add up his latest statements. No EU membership for Ukraine for decades. No NATO membership for Kyiv either. Repeated warnings not to humiliate Russia. All this plays in the hands of Putin and no-one else. Recall that back in 2019, Macron was waxing rhapsodic on Russia as “a true European nation, heir to the Enlightenment” – a notion that applied in its time to Turgenev and Chekhov, not to Vladimir today. Look at Macron’s latest project, the “multi-tier EU” (or EU-lite) for those European countries that France and Germany disapprove of. That thing doesn’t exist, isn’t financed, has no known shape and hasn’t been agreed by anyone except a Macron-called “Conference for the Future of Europe” in which citizens drawn by lots were invited to provide “unmediated” public opinion, which somehow would be truer. Macron’s entire education, like that of most French elites, has taught him to respect strength and power, not courage. It’s the ethos of the civil service that shaped him, and it’s simple defeatism" Anne-Elizabeth Moutet https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/05/14/defended-emmanuel-macrons-approach-russia-now-unforgivable/

  2. You need the insurance company to send out THEIR inspector. His report is the only one that matters (to the Insurance company). His report will determine what the insurance company will cover. In effect, what estimates of works you need. Estimates from contractors are obtained AFTER the insurance inspectors report has been submitted.

  3. As ALBF has said, it depends whether it is constructible or not. If it doesn't have a certificate d'urbanism then it will only be of interest to farmers, and non-constructible land is dirt cheap. An agent can do a valuation of the land, even if you won't be selling it with them, but there will be a fee. Also be aware that land that may have been constructible some years ago may now have changed its designation to non-constructible.

  4. It is a good time as any. In fact it is quite a good time. It really depends where the land is and if it constructable. Around ere, land would sell within 24hrs. Probably less. You don't need an agent you can sell it yourself on 'Le Bon Coin'. But you will still need a Notaire. Valueing it is going to be the hard part. So in that respect an agent maybe a good idea. Or sell it with the Notaire. Notaires sell property and land like everyone else.

  5. Australia is the centre of the Universe, ask any Australian! I'm not sure how many relatives I have out there now, including a Sister and two Brothers in law, lord knows how descendants they have managed between them but when ever I speak to any of them it's apparent that it is they who run the world!!!! So, being the centre of the Universe it is only natural that they think Australia is part of Europe!!! Actually I do have, though it may not sound like it, absolute respect for Australians. They have done more than their fair share in two world wars, Vietnam, Afghanistan and have sent equipment to Ukraine not to mention ****---ed off Macron, that alone would put them high in my esteem!!!

  6. Well I like to be fair, and realistic! Yes many people are contributing money, food, clothing etc. to help Ukraine but the reality is that it is a drop in the ocean. This isn't about a token of 'conscience' where people donate something and then, conscience satisfied, forget about it. This is about Governments, countries and official institutions such as NATO and the U.N. Countries that should be helping on the scale of Britain and the USA but have been pathetic in their response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The one notable exception in the E.U. has been Poland. The E.U. as an institution has been, and still is pathetic, a disgrace in fact. I live in France and think it a wonderful country, with exceptions of course, but its political leadership has always disgusted me. As for saying Rule Britannia is uncalled for; Why? I'm extremely proud that my country is leading the world in its aid to Ukraine and not just with some token food and clothing from the 'people! Rule Britannia.
