Cheeky monkeys

I did wonder what would happen.

You see, François Hollande, President of the French Republic, was inaugurating the Cité du Vin yesterday at Bordeaux.

And his government is locked in conflict with the French unions over a proposal to  liberalise employment law, permitting a longer working day and less overtime payment - work more to earn less, one might say (travailler plus pour gagner moins).

So they cut the power to the part of the city where the new wine museum has been built.

Haha! Cheeky monkeys!

But the museum is equipped with generators; They kicked in, and nobody noticed anything.

Oh well...
