Yes, I know I got you all dusting off your Sir Terry Wogan Floral Dance EP and that you have been practicing with the expectation of popping along to Limoux for a singalong, in the excitement I got carried away as it’s not the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band it’s the Grimethorpe Colliery Band.


In the Chinese version of The Voice, the President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping got a full house of judges turning for him. No, not really, I just saw this image for the Boao Forum (the Asian equivalent of Davos meeting) and saw the chaps in white chairs in the front row and I laughed.


Clever old Elon Musk has so far got orders for 250,000 of his Tesla 3 car, which won’t be delivered at the earliest until next year. Each order is accompanied by $1000 and by my reckoning that’s $250m. It seems to have got people interested because it has less of the problems associated with electric cars, a range of 215 miles, a reasonable price and acceleration. Those deposits will help fill the hole left by losses in development and it would appear they are the way of the future.

As French strikes continue over proposed labour law changes could France be heading for its summer of discontent?


Meanwhile back in Port Talbot, Tata know they have no chance to sell their steel works for anything other than a token and at that point Government GB should buy it and mothball it, and then with the money everyone would like them to spend propping up an unviable business they should discretely stockpile enough steel for the next 100 years. I think they would get a good deal for that amount.

Lost in France



In all my trawling of vide greniers for magazines and styles from 1940s France, one thing I’d not come across was the les zazous.  Listening to France Info while driving in the hope of improving my French I caught a tiny snippet about les zazous, a tribe of style conscious teenage and twenty-somethings in occupied France who decided that their resistance was through fashion.



The name Zazou it is believed originated in pre-war America from the 1933 jazz hit by Cab Calloway ‘Zaz Zou Zaz’ which heralded in the style in the USA of swing and zoot suits.  Les Zazous were the counterculture of their time, making bold statements and challenging the establishment with their choices in music, dance, and fashion. It was the latter that really set apart these young Parisians and made them easily identifiable.  I found this description on a blog called ‘A Little Zazou Pour Vous’ which includes a description of les zazous in a pamphlet apparently produced by something called the British Anarchist Federation.  Links between les zazous and zoot suits and swing were obvious but similarities to the future teddy boys of the 1950s seem quite prescient.


Men wore extra large jackets which hung down to their knees and which were fitted out with many pockets and often several half-belts...Their trousers were narrow, gathered at the waist, and so were their ties, which were cotton or heavy wool. The shirt collars were high and kept in place by a horizontal pin. They liked thick-soled suede shoes, with white or brighting coloured (sic) socks.


The amount of fabric used was a social commentary on government decrees regarding the rationing of clothing material, and the formal "Chamberlain" umbrella a"parody of Englishness...always neatly furled and never opened in spite of rainy weather."


In turn the women wore their hair in curls falling down to their shoulders or in braids. Blonde was the favourite colour, and they wore bright red lipstick, as well as sunglasses...They wore jackets with extremely wide shoulders and short pleated skirts. Their stockings were striped or sometimes net, and they wore shoes with thick wooden soles.


During the occupation, les zazous resisted the Nazi presence and snubbed the collaborationist Vichy government through their nonconformity. They listened and danced with unbridled zeal to "degenerate" jazz music and continued to dress in what the Nazis and Vichy officials considered a subversive fashion. It did not take long before les zazous incurred the wrath of the authorities, and wearing yellow stars changed to include their own zazous references didn’t help matters.

In Germany the counterpart to les zazous the Swingjungendbecame targets of the Gestapo, and Hitler Youth. Jazz music, swing dancing, and the style of dress that went with it were seen as too American, too black, and too subversive for the Führer's liking. In Germany, the Swingjungend

became victims of the Reich, and were often beaten, jailed, and sent to concentration camps where many died.

French Tax Returns




The time is approaching for French residents to make their 2016 income tax declarations and there is an important

change in procedure.


If your revenue fiscal de reference (taxable income) was at least €40,000 in 2014 (i.e. as declared in 2015), then you

are now obliged to make an on-line declaration. The only exception to this is if your principal residence does not

have an internet connection, in which case, you can still submit a paper declaration. By 2019, only on-line declarations

will be possible and between now and then, the ceiling of the income limit for paper declarations will reduce each year.



On-line declarations can be made from 13th April 2016 up to the following deadlines:


  • 24th May 2016 for departments 01 to 19;
  • 31st May 2016 for departments 20 to 49; and
  • 7th June 2016 for all other departments and non-residents.

Paper declarations, where permitted, must be submitted by 18th May 2016.


For those of you who came to live in France during 2015, then you will need to make your first French tax declaration

and declare all your worldwide income and gains, but only for the period since becoming resident in 2015. To do this,

you will need to collect the necessary forms from your local tax office.


Income and gains that might be tax-free in another country, for example, UK ISAs, premium bond winnings and

Pension Commencement Lump Sums, must be declared, as all are taxable in France. Even for income that is taxable

in another country, for example a UK government type of pension (i.e. civil service, military, police and teachers

pensions, but not State pensions) and/or UK property rental income, the amount must still be reported in France and it

will be taken into account in calculating your French income tax. You will then be given a tax reduction to take into

account the fact that the income is taxable elsewhere.


If you have been living in France for less than 183 days in 2015, you may be thinking that you do not need to

register in the French tax system. This is a myth because the time that you spend in France is not the only factor

that is taken into account in determining whether or not you are resident in France. For more on this, please see my

article at:


If you do not register in the French tax system and you should have done, you risk a financial penalty. Never mind what

that nice lady in the tax office says about you not needing to register if you have been here for less than a year – you

will be liable for the fine, not her!



Are you convinced now to register in the system? If you’re still not sure, call me and with just a few questions, I will be

able to tell you.


It is also obligatory to declare the existence of bank accounts and life assurance policies held outside of France,

regardless of whether these accounts pay interest or if there is a zero balance in the account. The penalties for not

doing so are €1,500 per account or contract, which increases to €10,000 if this is held in an uncooperative State that

has not concluded an agreement with France to provide administrative assistance to exchange tax information.

Furthermore, if the total value of the accounts and contracts not declared is at least €50,000, then the fine is increased

to 5% of the value of the account/contract as at 31st December, if this is greater than €1,500 (€10,000 if in an

uncooperative State).


No-one should ever try to second guess the Fisc or think that they can out-manoeuvre this government department

. I hear some interesting stories of people being contacted and questioned about why they are not registered in the

French tax system. You would be amazed at what is used to check – telephone bills, utility bills, etc., etc. How long

will it be before our use of cash machines and our bank and credit card transactions in shops might be used to

verify how much time we spend in France? Scary thought and actually they probably don’t need to go that far, as we

can be tracked through our mobile phones and probably also our internet use.


On a final note, if anyone finds that they need to complete the pink 2047 form, this means that you have foreign income

and/or gains to declare. If this is for any reason other than pension income and earnings, then perhaps you may

benefit from a brief discussion to see if your financial situation can be improved by investing in something that is

more tax-efficient for French residency.


If you would like to have a confidential discussion with one of our financial advisers, you can contact us by

e-mail at or by telephone on 04 68 31 14 10. Alternatively, drop-by to our Friday morning

clinic at our office at 2 Place du Général Leclerc, 11300 Limoux, for an initial discussion.

Hard Reset and iPad or iPhone

If your iPad or iPhone crashes and will not respond how do you reset it.

Press and hold the Home button and the Power button keep them both depressed (don’t touch the screen or any other button). After around 15 seconds, your phone/tablet will go black and the Apple logo will appear. Then let go of the buttons and wait.

After a few minutes your device will restart and should be fully functioning again. This type of reset is safe and will not remove any data or settings.

If you are still having problems then you need to do a complete factory reset, this will wipe everything from your device so make sure its backed up first.

Go to Setting, General and then Reset, click on Erase All Content and Settings. You will be asked if you are sure, then the wipe will start.

If you are unable to get to setting then you need to connect the device to your computer and use iTunes to reset or restore you device.



If you have AVG anti-virus watch out they are aggressively pushing the paid version of AVG internet security and also some other very nasty tools AVG Tuneup and AVG Web protection and you absolutely do not want either of these on your computer.

AVG anti-virus is still very but if you only want the free version then never accept the trial and watch carefully next time AVG updates, it should say AVG – anti virus Free.

AVG – Tuneup – this is not made by AVG even though it carries their name. If you have AVG Tuneup you need to remove it IMMEDIATELY – it does not clean or speed up and its very likely to break or damage Windows. Go to the control panel, programs and features and REMOVE - AVG – Tuneup.

If you see or are offered AVG web tuneup or AVG web protection, these two will remove Google as your search engine and substitute AVG search using Yahoo – not a good idea. Remove them from your computer. You need to follow the instruction they give to remove the plugin its different for each browser.

If you are fed up with AVG adverts, popups and other junk then you can change over to Avast anti-virus, they also have a free version which is very good and does not carry all the ads and junk. Download it from

Please remember to completely remove AVG or any other virus scanning software BEFORE you install Avast, you can only have one virus scanner on a computer at a time.

If you need help or have any questions about your computer please give me a call or send me an email for advice. or Telephone 05 61 60 84 23.

A Guide to Mystical France  

Mystical Sites in the Aude and Ariège

Nick Inman


While I was writing my book, A Guide to Mystical France, I found the southwest to be particularly rich in sites to mention. Here is a selection of my favourite places to visit in the departments of Aude and Ariège  – and just beyond their borders.








Alet-les-Bains. (South of Limoux). At the centre of this small town off the main road up the Aude valley are the atmospheric ruins of a medieval abbey. There is not much too them but they are still worth wandering around to see if you can imagine what life was like for the monks before the Wars of Religion in the 16th century destroyed everything. The windows of the adjoining church have unusual tracery forming the Star of David.

   Dolmen de Fades (North of Pépieux, southwest of Minerve). There are an extraordinary number of megalithic monuments in France. The most famous are in Brittany but there are plenty in the southwest if you look for them. This one, dating from 3500 BC, is particularly pleasing. It is an extremely large dolmen in a beautiful and peaceful setting on top of a low hill beneath pine trees.

     Grotte de Niaux (Ariège, near Tarascon). There is no experience quite like visiting a cave painted by prehistoric people and this is one of my favourites. To see the paintings you have to walk a long way underground, carrying the torch and keeping up with the guide. Fortunately,

the cave hasn’t been equipped for visitors. There are no concrete paths or electric lights. The reward is seeing extraordinary artwork crated 15,000 years ago.

     Montségur The castle above the village is the site of the last stand of the beleaguered Cathars. There is nothing to see on the summit but walls and great views but it is worth the walk nevertheless just to feel the character of the place. When a lengthy siege ended in 1244 over 200 Cathars preferred to be burned alive rather than renounce their faith. Park on the approach road from Lavelenet and Foix. The ticket booth is half way up the slope. Wear a hat and take water.

    Pont du Diable, Montoulieu (south of Foix, signposted from the main road, not the motorway). There are around 50 structures called “the Devil’s Bridge” around France, the implication being that any ingenious looking structure over a river must be the work of a superhuman engineer. This one was built in the 19th century (by humans, as far as we know) and is easily accessible by foot from the nearest road.

     Raynaude (Off the D119 near Mas d’Azil). In the late 19th century, an enterprising local priest decided to built a series of stations of the cross climbing the hillside behind the church. According to a local story, he ran out of money but in 1892 John D Rockefeller happened to be passing and he provided the funds to finish the work.

     Rennes-le-Château. (near Couiza). In the 1980s, when I first came here, there was an aura of mystery about this hilltop town because of the book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (which provided inspiration for Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code). Since then a series of authors and film makers have gone about deliberately debunking the claims that there is any mystery at all. Whatever the truth, Rennes-le Chateau is an intriguing place to visit. A local heritage association has produced an excellent colour booklet explaining everything.

    Rieux Minervois. (Northeast of Carcassonne) Most churches are rectangular or cross-shaped, with the altar located at the eastern end. This church is highly unusually in that it is “round” (actually 7-sided). There are some spectacular Romanesque carvings on the capitals of the columns.

     Vals (Between Mirepoix and Pamiers) The village church here is joined to the rock and the lower parts make use of natural underground chambers. In addition, there are some beautiful paintings on one of the ceilings. It can be visited at any time you please and, being out of the way, you may well get it all to yourself which is the only want to get a sense of the atmosphere.

     Villerouge-Termenès (in the Corbières). Several places in the region claim to have a Cathar connection and in most cases it is slender. It was here, in this small village around a castle, that the last Cathar perfect, Guillaume Bélibaste, was burnt at the stake in 1321. The place is well looked after by the local council making it a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.



      The Flyer has two copies of A Guide to Mystical France to give away to answer the following question correctly.

Nick Inman writes: “I was going to include another abbey church in this list. It is in the Aude near one of the places that did make it on to my list. The apse is 11th-century Romanesque; but what is special about this church is that beneath it is an 8th-century Carolingian crypt.” Which church is he talking about?

After nearly 18 years at La Petite Pépinière I am retiring from operating a general nursery which is being taken on by Imogen Checketts and Kate Dumbleton who are creating an exciting new garden and nursery on a piece of uncultivated land next door to La Petite Pépinière,  they will be offering a similar range of plants to La Petite Pépinière but introducing some interesting new grasses and perennials.  They are already taking plant orders for 2016 and will be opening every Saturday from the 16th April onwards from 10 – 17h, they are also always open by appointment.  They can be contacted for more information at or or by phone on 07 80 43 32 62 and they can be followed on Facebook at      I would like to thank everyone who has supported La Petite Pépinière over the years. 


For my semi-retirement, as a confirmed plantaholic I shall be continuing to experiment with new and unusual plants for my own pleasure and will occasionally offer these for sale or exchange  via my mailing list and at events here.  I shall also be offering occasional gardening courses and will continue to be available for advice and consultation about planting schemes and garden development.    The garden here will continue to be open by
appointment for individuals and always also with the possibility of guided visits for groups (  We shall be holding our annual open weekend here on the 4th & 5th June 2016 and I'll be circulating more details about this soon.

I will still always be available to answer plant and garden queries; by phone 04 68 78 43 81 or email

Hello Steve

I've just received the latest Flyer and your headline states that the Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band is coming to Limoux but there are no further details. As far as I'm aware the Grimethorpe Colliery Band is coming.  Am I right ?

kind regards


Couldn't agree more. These so called experts pontificating.

I know what I like . I don't need anyone to decide for me.; Though have to say I like Mary Berrys books. Over oand out On On .



> Objet : legal proceedings start against the UK Government over its decision to exclude up to 2 million British people living in the European Union from the right to vote in June's EU Referendum.

I believe you have quite a few  UK ex.pat contacts - might you be able to publicise the legal challenge, to encourage them to sign the petition below?


15 year ruling – legal proceedings start

LanguedocLiving, Mar 15

> Law firm Leigh Day have confirmed formal legal proceedings will begin in the High Court in London on Wednesday 16th March 2016 against the UK Government over its decision to exclude up to 2 million British people living in the European Union from the right to vote in June’s EU Referendum.

> The petition to Extend EU referendum voting rights to all UK citizens living abroad is here: 


> At the time of writing (15th March), it currently has 14,254 signatures, and needs 100,000 to be considered for debate in parliament.  We urge you to sign it, and pass the message on to others to sign.

> Below is the press release from Leigh Day.

> The London based law firm is acting on behalf of 94-year-old Harry Shindler, a Second World War veteran who lives in Italy, and lawyer and Belgian resident Jacquelyn MacLennan. Both claim that under the EU Referendum Act 2015 they are being denied the right to vote on the UK’s continued membership of the EU.

> Despite the Conservative 2015 manifesto including the pledge to introduce votes for life, scrapping the rule that bars British citizens who have lived abroad for more than 15 years from voting, the UK government have not proposed any legislation to reverse this ‘undemocratic’ rule ahead of this Summer’s crucial vote on whether the United Kingdom remains in the EU.

> Official legal action will begin this week when papers are filed at the High Court, on behalf of the two claimants, for an urgent judicial review of the compatibility of the provisions of the EU Referendum Act and EU law.

> Lawyers for the claimants state that excluding UK expats who have lived elsewhere in the EU for more than 15 years acts as a disincentive from, and a penalty for, their exercising their free movement rights.

> It also prevents them from participating in a democratic process, the result of which might bring to an end the very EU law rights on which they rely and base their working lives.

> The judicial review of the legislation, if successful, would require the Government to rush through amending legislation to change the franchise for the forthcoming referendum in June 2016.

> According to lawyers there is precedent for such fast track legislation going through Parliament in a matter of days, they point to the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act 2014 which received Royal Assent on 17 July 2014 after being introduced before Parliament just three days before, on 14 July 2014, in response to a European Court decision that declared the Data Retention Directive to be invalid.

> Richard Stein, the lawyer from Leigh Day representing the claimants, said:

> “Our clients are being penalised for exercising their EU free movement rights.

> “The EU Referendum Act 2015 is said to be based on legislation for UK parliamentary general elections. But it gives a vote in the EU Referendum to members of the House of Lords, as well as to Irish and Commonwealth citizens who are resident in Gibraltar. None of these are allowed to vote in UK general elections.

> “The people it arbitrarily excludes are those UK citizens who are among those most likely to be affected by the decision taken by voters in this referendum.

> “Not to allow them to vote on the decision whether the UK remains part of the EU is unlawful and we have asked the Court to deal with the issues urgently so that the Act can be amended before the June date, to include all UK citizens residing in the EU for however long.”

> Charlotte Oliver, an English lawyer based in Rome who runs her own practice in the Italian Capital and supports the legal action being taken, said:

> "I am one of millions of people who make up the ever-increasing international British community, having lived in Italy since 2001 for family reasons. However, I still consider the UK my home, and the place where I will retire one day.

> "As the Conservative Party made clear in their manifesto, there should be a vote for life for British citizens. The cut off point of 15 years is arbitrary and arcane given travel and communications have improved so much since it was imposed in 1982.

> "It does not prove that a person has severed all ties with their country of origin. I cannot vote in Italian elections either as I am not an Italian national, so I am disenfranchised.

> "I am a dual qualified English and Italian lawyer and represent international clients in Italy, the majority of whom are British nationals. I can practise here as a result of the European Directive on the Freedom of Establishment of lawyers in other member states.

> "The decision of the UK to stay in or leave the EU is therefore something which affects me personally and professionally. I believe I should have the right to have my voice heard."

> Hope you can help.   Thanks.

  benoit draft 2 with adaptions 





 A Chinese doctor can't find a job in a hospital in the US, so he opens a clinic and puts a sign outside that reads "GET TREATMENT FOR $20 - IF NOT CURED GET BACK $100."
An American lawyer thinks this is a great opportunity to earn $100 and goes to the clinic.
American Lawyer: "I have lost my sense of taste."
Chinese Doctor: "Nurse, bring medicine from box No. 22 and put 3 drops in patient's mouth."
American Lawyer: "Ugh. this is kerosene."
Chinese Doctor: "Congrats, your sense of taste is restored. Give me $20."
The annoyed lawyer goes back after a few days to recover his money.
American Lawyer: "I have lost my memory. I cannot remember anything."
Chinese Doctor: "Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in his mouth."
American Lawyer (annoyed): "This is kerosene. You gave this to me last time for restoring my taste."
Chinese Doctor: "Congrats. You got your memory back. Give me $20."
The fuming lawyer pays him, and then comes back a week later determined to get back $100.
American Lawyer: "My eyesight has become very weak I can't see at all."
Chinese Doctor: "Well, I don't have any medicine for that, so take this $100."
American Lawyer (staring at the note): "But this is $20, not $100!!"
Chinese Doctor: "Congrats, your eyesight is restored. Give me $20"
