you seem to fit most of the criteria! but do you own a tractor ? , preferably over 50 years old?
No, but I'd like one, if only to cut my jungle field myself, rather than waiting for my neighbour getting around to it. :D

I have a 1995 HD Sportster/Buell/kawasaki, and an original 1949 Grey Fergy. icon_yo

Despite rumours to the contrary, I haven't quite shuffled off my mortal coil, and have been chuckling about some of the comments on here about the Linky thread.

It went very quiet, I thought, after JS goaded me into putting a mild bit of 'conspiracy theory' on just to see what reaction there would be.

Quite amusingly it seemed to cause a deafening silence. :mrgreen:

The reason I stopped posting on my thread was that I had decided that given the behaviour of our Glorious Leader (the maire here) and general apathy from my fellow communards, I was wasting time by actively pursuing the subject further.

The reason I posted the thread was, as Richard and several other people on here understand, to inform. I know a number of y'all actually posted refusal letters, some probably also armoured their external meters, and probably some joined activist groups and are speading the Lerve.

Our council were supposed to vote on the issue on April 14th, but the Glorious Leader decided they shouldn't / couldn't, because Enedis failed to show up for the promised propaganda session.

Mid May, Enedis showed, my wife recorded the session, the usual boring litany of lies, and again they failed to vote, mainly because only 7 out of the 12 members showed up.

My wife asked the GL last week when he intended to call them to vote, and he informed her " I don't consider it our place to vote..."

Translated this probably means he thinks it might go against Enedis' commercial interests, and possibly his own?

I intend writing to him, and copy to the elu, asking him what exactly he understands by 'civic duty' and the concept of elected council members 'representing the wishes and interests of the electorate'

If he thinks the electorate want the damned meters, I will challenge the wretched man to test his theory by referendum, or by organising a public meeting at HIS or the commune's expense.

We did a poll, and got a lot of response in just a few days with my daughter's petition. 120 sigs, this is a commune of only 300 ish.

I decided I'd be using my energy better by making a documentary about it all, unfortunately my director is tied up till September, and my 19 year old would be journalist presenter/interviewer who was perfect for it, (female and very pretty in a sweet innocent way, and bilingual so I could direct her in English) seems to have got involved in things leaving her with no spare time.

My own daughter, also perfect for the job, plus being very militant and knowing more about it than most, is unfortunately building a private chapel near Lille, so not exactly on hand.

Overall, I felt I'd done what I could, and anyone who is still ignorant enough to allow the meter to be fitted, that's their problem.

I will be living well outside influencing range of anyone else's meter, so again, not my problem.

Good to see you've not shuffled Hal! :) I was sent a link from a mate in our commune that rates the Maires on various subjects, ours scored 9 out of 20 - I wonder how yours does?

Just read back on this thread; in my defence Shan appears to have changed somewhat since I met him last....

A Harley and 2CV ? Are you 2CV Andy's twin brother?? incon_doh
only if he used to have an Enfield?
I think Andy still has his Enfield. I have a Harley, nearly had an Enfield, and used to deliver 2CVs - can I join your club?
Yep, still have the Enfield,
and the Transalp.
and the CX 500,
and the Harley,,,,,,,,,,, of course.
