    Re: silly season, I’ve only just realized that.
    In Australia the silly season across all media and workplaces is December 20 – January 20 because that our our summer, Christmas and New Years holidays. Bugger all gets done, there’s no news, and no one cares because we’re all at the beach.
    The rest of the year we are the epitome of diligence and efficiency. And sobriety.
    But Up Over you do it all backwards, I now see. Must be weird, like those cold Christmases and the wrong stars in the sky.

      I don’t doubt it for a moment.

      Maybe so, but how do you know this?

        Because there’s no reporting on it in France. Those I know in France say this.

          Can confirm that Mr H. Macron clamped down on anyone caught taking photos of protesters as well.

            Quite right too, we must protect the identities of our agents provocateur. Lord, aren’t I the pessimist in the room.
