Anschluss of Anjou and England?

The concept is at least intriguing:

Point is, of course, it’s neither the UK nor France but England and Anjou:

The vote will take place on September 8-10th at the annual theatre, dance circus and fine arts festival with the theme of “So British!”

Have you been to that region?  It’s nice and they clearly like us.  The motivation comes from Macron’s granny and behind it is stymying Brexit, therefore it must be declined on those grounds.

Parc Loire Anjou Touraine:

On the other hand, there’s something definitely romantic and even politically expedient for our islands in forging some sort of alliance – it’s a lever of sorts.  I for one, as a Francophile and adoring French regional cuisine, feel that something at least should be signed, if only to get the cuisine of that region available to us and then whatever they feel they need.

Hell, why not a treaty of protection, not unlike with the Falklands?  This could be a good table turning on Macron and his EU, it would be a grand place to go for a short break, with direct flights from London or Manchester.

    Back in 1946, so I understand, the French PM approached the British PM with a request. He wanted to have Britain allow France to become a member of the Commonwealth and have the British Monarch as Head of State. The Cabinet considered it and two things occurred. 1. It said NON, or a more English word of the same meaning: and 2. they embargoed the Cabinet papers for 60 years. So it did not come to light until 2006.

    The whole EU bizzo would not have occurred had the Cabinet said OUI, but as it is we have a big IOU being passed back and forth.

    Most of that map is pretty remote from Anjou, surely?

      Er yes – don’t know what happened there.

        Map’s fine. That’s where Anjou is. It’s inland.

          You miss the point: he’s silently replaced the map. He must be a member of the Illuminati.

    Excellent idea, I’m all in favour of such alliances between areas and districts – the point being that most English people like the people and locality of the Anjou and hopefully they like us. Basically at the level of individual people most western europeans get along perfectly fine. Governments, and especially Brussels are the propblem.
    More usefully I suggest the way out of the Brexit impass is for England to forge individual alliances and trade deals with those European countries that we get along with and can persuade to ignore Brussels. Poland might be a good choice as one place with the balls to reject Brussels.

    What a terrible idea. On the surface, fair enough, but can you see the Councils getting all lathered up, twinning bits of Anjou with Peckham. or, heaven forbid; Tower Hamlets? Lots of visits for ‘diversity; purposes, and then making sure that their ‘bit’ of Anjou flies the ‘effing Rainbow Flag!

    Ever more taxpayers cash down the drain! No thanks!

    Food for thought.
