I love the French strikes as long as I'm not stuck in Paris.

Pretty funny how the taxi monopoly has to resort to violence to enforce the status quo. People want cheaper transportation fuck em we the taxi union need to control it all.

I guess they want their money and don't want another car service to take that away. PARIS, JE T'AIME.

There's a lot of protests going on in France... There's one that's affecting travel in and out of Calais, and I think it's to do with a ferry company being sold and the employees not being consulted about it...

This makes me not want to ride a taxi ever again no matter what city I'm in. And while in Paris, you can always use the Metro.
