Rue du Brexit

rue-de-brexit

The mayor of a town in France has dedicated a road by renaming it the Rue du Brexit.

It is an insignificant road in an industrial estate in Beaucaire in the southern department of Gard. It is not clear whether it is intended as a joke, but the road leads around in a circular route back to the road you started on, a road named “Rue Robert Schumann” after one of the founding fathers of the European Union…

A report in the Daily Telegraph says the National Front mayor of the town Julien Sanchez intended it as a tribute to the Brexit decision of the British people, but critics point out that the road is in an ugly industrial zone and “goes nowhere” as it is circular.

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.
