Photo Article from Kambos - if you wondered what happened to the accursed Creperie

In Asterix the Gaul there are bouts of frenzied activity, hostilities and then, after the Romans are sent packing, the little Gallic village gets back to normal with everyone eating, drinking and doing nothing much in the way of work. I am reminded of this as I stare out of the restaurant formerly known as Miranda's where I will soon pay six Euro for a superb home cooked lunch. In case you wonder: park in a wine sauce with Okra.

As I stare out at the small square in front of Miranda's with the Kourounis tavern, run by lovely Eleni, on the right, all is quiet. A few men sit around having a drink. The world goes by with folks speeding by on the road to Kardamili. But nothing changes here in Kambos, the village closest to the Greek Hovel. Last summer, of course, it was all different.

Back then, a new interloper, the creperie, opened shop on the left of the square and then parked horrible plastic chairs everywhere which remained almost empty as the battle of the eateries commenced. By the autumn the creperie had "closed for winter". As you can see below, it has not re-opened. Peace is restored. It is back to normal. Everyone is content.

What is the army for? WokeTory MP for Wrexham Sarah Atherton yanks my chain again

The army is there so that if our nation is threatened they can go kill the bad guys. I don’t care who is in the army I just want folks I can rely on to go and kill bad people. That is why we have an army. It is not there as a decorative force to mirror society. Only fruitcakes on the left worry about quotas. Do we really need 0.2% of soldiers to be trangender and c2% to be LGBT? Or do the gays not matter in this game and we should only focus on women soldiers and those from ethnic minorities?  And why pick on the army and not other public sector bodies. Surely we have a right to know how many gay and lesbian dustbin operatives there are? From what I gather that sector is lmost entirely male, why is that? Where is the gender equality in dustbins?
