Why The French Don't Like Us Very Much

<< < (6/6)

Orac:
Not as individuals, no . . . . . . but as a nation? Definitely!

Where I live (when I'm in France) I'm within sight of the Spanish border and the French love us because we're not Spanish. Needless to say, the Spanish love us because we're not French! As for the Andorrans just round the corner, they love anyone with money to spend. :chuckle:

The Scots and the French have always got on well - even today. It's an English problem.

Orac:
But it's like most non-Dutch think Holland and The Netherlands are the same thing; the French, along with most other nationalities, think Great Britain and the United Kingdom are the same thing and that Scotland is a part of England anyway. :chuckle:

Vulpecula:

That's exactly my experience (of Andorra (and also of France and the French). I'm in France most years as my father lives there in the summer. The French like the English, but there's a centuries-old competitiveness between the nations. There's a bit more needle from the Northern French than those in the South perhaps, unsurprisingly.

I think that as a nation, we have rather more in common with the Germans, really.
 

Orac:
Ah! - My house is almost certainly amongst the thousand most southerly in the whole of France and I have more French friends than British friends there.
