woolybanana Posted February 24, 2015 Share Posted February 24, 2015 when he used the expression 'francais de souche' in a speech the other day? It has caused quite a polemique becaue it was used by the extreme right to describe 'pure bred Frenchmen', as opposed to others such as those of non- French origin, even if born in France. He was talking about the adolescents who smashed up a Jewish graveyard the other night.As President of the Republic he should perhaps be more careful in his choice of words, in a time of rising inter-racial tensions.But, what expression would used in English now to describe the group of youths? I suspect that saying something like 'pure bred British' might go down a storm. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
