Covid-19 pandemic: France eases travel for UK and six other countries
11/03/2021 | news | world | 1,311
A "compelling reason" is no longer needed to travel to and from the non-EU countries, officials say.
Un très grand merci au Gouvernement Français pour avoir inclus le Royaume-Uni dans votre initiative.

Pour ceux d'entre nous qui aiment la France, nos liens étroits et permanents doivent être les bienvenus. J'ai hâte d'être en France quand tout le monde pourra y aller en toute sécurité.

Vive La France et vive La République!

Brilliant we can travel to second home in Normandy. Have just booked crossing. Will stay there for the summer enjoying the food wine and countryside watching the Tory Brexiteers like Lord Fatty Frost of Uselessness trying but not succeding to put out the self lit so called "teething" infernos and push the truth under the carpet.

We will never forget or forgive how the EU have disrespected us, the country that liberated them, at great cost, from Hitler's National Socialists

No they aren't, and no they are not being 'hit hard.'

We are the ones taking a beating, hence why the government is capitulating on border controls.

Oh and I hate to point this out but the United States liberated them from the Nazis.

Take this from someone in the US. Stop using WW2 to justify "But you should love us". People care about what has happened in the past 20-30 years. Y'all not only broke off from them, but spat at them whilst doing it. It shouldn't be surprising that they spat back. Both the UK and EU have more to worry from being blackmailed by China, like Australia, and uncertainty over the US's future.

Actually the majority of new cases are the UK variant - brought back by the morons who just had to go to the UK for Christmas. You’re right that the vaccination programme is pitiful but they are fully vaccinating people not just giving everyone a first dose. Not saying either way is right or wrong just pointing out the different approach.
And the second wave in the UK at the end of the summer was caused by all the morons who just had to go to France and Spain for their holidays. And the first wave in the UK was caused by all the morons who just had to go skiing in Italy at half term. There's a lesson to be learnt there. Removed
