Since becoming mayor of Béziers in 2014, Robert Ménard has violated French law by collecting data of schoolchildren's religion, imposed a curfew to minors, and banned people from hanging washing from balconies.

However, yesterday, he went a step further, by pushing a referendum in his town on whether it should welcome refugees, following the dismantlement of the Calais jungle, despite the opposition of the préfet of the Hérault department. This provoked an outrage in government, and protestors were forced out of the mairie.

Here is a poster he has put up:


"The state imposes them on us... This is it, they're coming... Migrants, in our town center!"

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/eu...s-a7358186.html

Yes, 40 people are coming to a town of 72,000 inhabitants! And while Ménard may "compassion for Syrian refugees" (hint: he doesn't), but the people of his town cannot be saddled with 40 more Biterrois!

What a despicable human being, trying to turn Béziers (which is actually a nice town with quite a few things to see if you ignore the fact it has a fascist mayor) into some xeneophobic racist haven.

Any thoughts on this? (And feel free to name any more fascist mayors you can think of).

I had no idea that they had a fascist for a mayor. Went through it a few years ago and it seemed lovely, which made it all the more amusing that it's twinned with Stockport.

I've visited Beziers a few times, mostly to visit a rather nice restaurant there. No doubt our scummy press will be supporting the mayor sick2.gif

I doubt that. Only British fascist demagogues are worthy in the Daily Mail and Express.

The Mail didn't let Hitler's nationality stop them supporting him.
