One of my photos

Oi – no trainers!

SecurityIn the paper yesterday there was a small piece about Le Pen launching his 2007 presidential campaign.

In a break from tradition he says he is willing to tolerate foreigners, or at least he is willing to encourage them to support him, providing they accept “our dresscode and our laws”

Hang on… France has a dresscode? I get this mental picture of the passport control staff being accompanied by bouncers who will tell visitors “pas de jeans, pas de trainers – le ‘smart casual’ seulement! Now piss off and stop wasting my time.” Or similar.

Maybe that explains the photo of security at the Waterloo Eurostar terminal – they are searching for proscribed clothing, like flares, and the dogs are trained to sniff out cheesecloth.

    I don’t know about a dresscode – but the French actually think they have good dress-sense…..
