  1. Lazy journalism – why not “Paris France”?

    Strong possibility for the US readers of confusion with Paris Texas otherwise .

  2. Long history? Nah, it only goes back to Louis XIV. There’s a road close by here that dates back to the late Stone Age.

  3. Pretty sure the Champ’s Elsie is Haussmann’s Paris. So not so old at all. Old would be round Montmartre..

  4. There I was thiking the Elysean Fields were in Greece.
    Thanks, NY Dn for putting me right.

  5. I thought ‘All The News That’s Fit To Print’ was the New York Times’ slogan.

    “Pretty sure the Champ’s Elsie is Haussmann’s Paris. So not so old at all. Old would be round Montmartre..”

    Slightly earlier. It was created as an extension of the Tuileries in the 17th century, although by Haussmann’s time it had become a notorious sewer, which he cleaned up.

  7. Long, old and, sadly, full of the French:

    On the contrary, you’re unlikely to find many French there. It’s mainly foreigners!

    Plus, what BiS said.

    I imagine that the interview was a riveting car crash but as the ‘Wonderful and All Inclusive BBC’ provides neither the full transcript nor a hilarious Google CC I can’t access that content.

  9. OT

    I did believe May was BluLab. Today she confirmed it.

    1. Theresa May says 0.7% foreign aid commitment will remain in Tory manifesto

    2. Theresa May defies the right by maintaining 0.7% aid pledge

    I’m furious.

    Mistrust of her on Brexit has increased.

    May has confirmed she is scared of argument, debate and bad headlines on BBC & Grun

    Another spineless PM putting their MSM public image before what is economically best for the UK.

    Did I mention I’m furious….

    We know from the unlamented one-eyed Jock, manifesto pledges are not binding. And with the election won & a thumping Tory majority for the next 5 years….
    Let’s wait & see, eh?
    It’s not all about what the kitten-heeled one wants.

  11. Well, I suppose we should be grateful that De Gaulle didn’t narrow his eyes and start wittering about flied lice.

    Anyway, so why did the French plant all those trees down the Champs Elysées?
