John Sargeant

If publications reprint the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, it is not putting oil to the flame. The fundamentalists do that for themselves. Rather, we are showing that freely expressing our words and opinions are the lifeblood of humanity. They surge through us, they are a part of who we are.

Islam is not the first religion to be manipulated by criminals for their own socio-political agenda, but unfortunately the glaring voices of extremism have overshadowed the moderate majority, who much like the rest of the world, strongly condemn such horrific acts of violence.

Je Suis Charlie

In the aftermath of an atrocity as horrifying as the Paris murders on Wednesday, it is more important than ever to be crystal clear about the freedoms that we hold most dearly. Freedom of expression, which must always include the freedom to offend and to ridicule. Satire is an essential part of a democracy. Incitement to hatred and to violence are crimes; incitement to mockery is not... Freedom from fear, including the fear of being different, or of speaking out, or of questioning majority beliefs. Above all, the freedom from the fear of being murdered.

Once the reality of living in Paris hit home, the cost of doing so brought such excitement to a brief halt.

I love visiting Paris...the food, the history, the arrogance, everything that tells me I'm a tourist. My sister is a hard core Francophile. She ran away to live the dream there, ended up fluent, and a professor at La Sorbonne.

The Difference Between French and English Women

Katy Horwood | Posted 31.01.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Katy Horwood

Parisiennes aren't famed for their warm personalities and are, for the most part, considered by the rest of the world to be arrogant and unfriendly. I like to take this with a pinch of salt and whilst I wouldn't say it is totally unfounded I do think that there is little point in getting irritated by it. It is after all, the 'charm' of the city, is it not?

The only thing more annoying than an irritating child being rambunctious on a crowded train, is a child conducting himself in such a manner in French. There is something rather excruciating about hearing incomprehensible high pitched words produced from the back of someone else's throat when you are already of a nauseous disposition.
