All the talk yesterday was about the visit of the French President and his intensive talks with three other EU leaders.

Was there a festival going on?

UPDATE: The Macrons did manage to attend the Argerich/Barenboim recital in the Grosses Festspielhaus last night.

    Coming soon…

    “Macron went to hear Argerich & Barenboim. Oh, why can’t British politicians be so cultured?”
    “Well, George Osborne and Michael Gove were at Bayreuth the other day…”

      The neighbor’s grass is greener.

      Actually you picked a very effective tactic to make sure no such comments appear.

  2. Quasi Verbatim says:

    Macron – the Rothschild banker front man – takes care of his personal appearance c/o the French taxpayer with 26000€ spent on makeup in 3 months.

    “Let them eat cake.”

      Slightly jealous perhaps?

    2. Anon says:

      In due fairness, all the non-Rothschild banker President frontmen before him, spent comparable or even higher amounts on the same.

    3. Anon says:

      One more reason to like Merkel. Her makeup budget is likely 26.000 € too… for all 12 years of her chancellorship in total.
