This is from someone who works in MC about todays demonstration. It's in French, but I guess everyone knows how to use google and get the gist
"C'est comique ici.
Une petite centaine de manifestants est attendue à Cap d'Ail.
Depuis les 9h00, un balai incessant d'hélicoptères de l'armée de terre dépose des troupes d'infanterie armées de LRAC ( bazooka ) sur le stade de Cap d'Ail
On dirait Apocalipse Now, il ne manque plus que la musique de Wagner.
Plus amusant encore, depuis 3 semaines, dans les gares on a droit au message en boucle "étiquetez vos bagages, ne les laissez pas sans surveillance et signalez nous immédiatement tout colis qui vous paraîtrait abandonné".
Ce matin, on a trouvé une grosse valise abandonnée. On l'a signalé aux CRS. Visiblement cela ne les dérangeait pas. "
LOL he would if they were telling him to get out of MC. I thought that the amount of security they had put up for a few hundred people was rather hilarious. It show once again that MC has no sense of proportion. Especially when sth actually is being reported, like an abandoned suitcase, no one cares. It's as if they got bored of their own security measures.
Monaco is doing TERRIBLE in every aspect (I just stop posting all the info) and a lot of people are losing their jobs - but Albert and Charlene who are actually spending more and doing less. The director of SBM is leaving.
Bernard Lambert leaves the direction of the SBM November 7, 2011
In a statement, the SBM said: "The board of directors of the Société des Bains de Mer and Bernard Lambert decided, by mutual agreement, to end his tenure as CEO. The Board of Directors thanked Mr. Bernard Lambert for his significant contributions to the progress of the Société des Bains de Mer since his appointment 12 February 2002. During its deliberations, the Board has conferred the credentials of the delegation to Mr. Jean -Louis Masurel, administrator. "
Monaco's fairytale love story: post-engagement
PPDA: And this was the woman whom you needed? Albert: I think... *** Reporter: "Is Charlene Wittstock your soulmate?" Albert: "I don't know if she is ...I don't know yet.
It's being built already. Plans have been made for some time but had been abandoned. peoplein Beausoleil thought it was all finished, when they pulled it out of the sleeve to calm people after they cancelled the extension that nobody wanted apart from the real estate. There is another plot on the French side bordering MC, la cremaillere which has been dragging on for many years. They keep saying that they will construct and then they don't. It's very controversial too. There were signs up of what they want to build there, I didn't see anything when I left. I will soon be going for a few days and it's right down the road, so maybe they started. But that one too was originally planned as being higher then Millefiori and now they have significantly downscaled. There seems to be some problems with the investors. Odeon ha similar problems, but when MC wants sth they go for it no matter what. The main problem on that one though is the way MC is dealing with its neighbours. They are not informing them but expect them to accommodate them. IMO they should just close the roads with some urgent roadwork for many months and then see how MC is dealing with it.
