French News

The exodus of the Brits seems to have been the last straw for the 21-year-old English language monthly newspaper "French News". The publisher went into liquidation earlier this month. Nicknamed "the Whingeing Pom", the paper was known for the letters from ex-pats complaining about French locals who misbehaved by lighting bonfires in their gardens and allowing their dogs to bark at night.

Perhaps the funds will be raised to buy the company and pay off its debts. If not, British ex-pats will have to make do with the newer and more accepting "the Connexion".
