France yet again seems to be getting ideas above its station by threatening to cut the electricity to Jersey which is supplied by a cable under the sea from France.
You could understand this action being taken if Jersey had not put a shilling in the meter or failed to pay the bill but as far as I know they are up to date with their payments.
I don’t like having to take this jingoistic attitude but in all fairness the French are asking for it, just because our friendship with the EU has taken a turn for the worst and they are going to have less access to our fishing waters, it seems like the actions of a bad loser if you ask me.
It seems to me it is just a repeat of their actions in World War Two when the German blitzkrieg came storming into France fuelled by soldiers who were high on vast quantities of methamphetamines.
The French apparently had more troops and better tanks than the Germans and yet the Germans still overran them because the French had no communications radio.
The Germans would therefore poke their noses out of a wood with their inferior Panzerkampfwagen series of tanks better known as Panzer tanks and then scurry back into the woods only to be followed by the French in their far superior tanks only to be met by a barrage of massive German anti tank guns.
The French, lacking in decent radio contact were unable to stop the carnage until it was too late leaving them unable to stop the Germans occupation of their country and once again we have a lot of angry sullen Frenchmen blaming someone else for their own incompetence.
Had the French and their cronies in the EU been less beastly to us we wouldn’t have left and they wouldn’t be in the situation where they are threatening to turn the lights off in Jersey over the petty loss of a few fish suppers.
