    I know there are a bunch of people reading this forum that are from france. I was wondering if you guys would tell me what is the most controversial topic there besides the no headwear ban. I would appreciate a french persons opinion.

    They are probably wondering what the point of the thread is.

    I actually bet there are not many people reading this forum from france. Maybe one or two, but considering this is in english, not french......

    Today's french controversial news :

    - Arrafat's health status.
    - The situation in Cote d'ivoire, how french corporations handle security there, will Air-France eventually send more planes there for the evacuation of the french expats. What will the army do next there?
    - Internal politics: the ratification of the European constitution, no party can define a clear policy.
    - Internal politics 2: will the prime minister last 6 more months
    - Internal politics 3: how will the actual finance minister handle the 2005 elections
    - Internal politics ad nauseum. Hey, that's France after all :)
    - Road security: The ministery of transportation launched a campaign inciting car-drivers to turn their crossing lights on all the time. Big upheaval from the bikers, they fear no one will notice them in traffic anymore.
    - Justice: contaminated blood scandal from 1991 resurfaces
    - Society: a protester died after being run over by a nuclear train.

    hope that helps :)

    Maybe you'd like a French person to write it for you. Yes that is Frech with a capital F - probably the mark you'll end up with.

    Especially if he leaves the "n" out of "French".

    Ahhh, we love trying to push posts into the wasteland, don't we? :D

    I like to read Le Monde every once in a while...I need to work on my French more though. I watched a spate of Eric Rohmer and Kieslowski's Red and White and Blue, and then I haven't been doing much in French recently... :(

    Hey its an oral presentation which i am going to do 100% of the research but i don't want to do on a crummy topic that no french person cares about. Plus its against academic integrity for someone else to do your work. :rolleyes:

    thank you Palad1 for those links will use em

    don't know why this wasn't in my subscribed threads

    edit: plus if a french person did my thing its a dead giveaway ;)

    Évidemment...

    I'd go with the Côte d'Ivoire and the European Constitution. Those two topics get to the heart of how the French see themselves.
