That is exactly how the Nazis started.
You calling me a Nazi?
Calm down, dear.
It's nice to be appreciated.
I wouldn't know.

It would seem that our situation is little better, in a practical sense - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-42783279
I wonder how the the BBC spent investigating the bleeding obvious.
The individual discussed as an unreliable builder / stove installer is being taken to court. Very soon.!!!!! For appalling work/possible theft etc.

Could you keep us a(chimney)breast of proceedings mr/mrs french?
Would be most obliged if you could, coz this is golden.

Is this a threatened action by a disgruntled customer or is there a court date set?
Date set, in fact it will be the second visit !
Not pointing the finger at anyone in particular, but this highlights why you should always use a reputable person/company:
An incorrectly installed wood burner and batteries removed from smoke alarms. Probably no carbon monoxide alarms either. A recipe for disaster.
Narrow escape as elderly couple wake to find house on fire
Just found out that's 100 yards up the road. Not sure how I slept through it.
Please can you provide us with the detail as that business is closed and has been for 18 months. The only outstanding court issue on this matter is €40,000 of unpaid artisans fees by a mother and daughter. This matter is being dealt with by the French courts, there are no other cases on record. You obviously live in a fantasy world like « Game of Thrones » you really need to be truthful and provide evidence before issuing racist commentary. Shame on you, not all French people are c@£€s, this is really not very proper, and in France evidence like this can be used in court proceedings
Hi Genuine Norman, welcome to Stafford Forum.
I can see how you might misinterpret @Withnail's post as xenophobic, but it was done tongue-in-cheek - if anything he was having a dig at "Little Englanders", the tendency of pro-Brexit types to hold antiquated, racist views (French are rude, Germans are Nazis, etc.) that ordinary, rational types know are nonsense stereotypes. @Gramaisc even responded to Withnail's post by saying that his dealings with French "artisans", as you put it (great word), were entirely positive!
Sorry for any offence caused; it is easy to misconstrue British humour, especially in text form!
Ah, this might explain the myriad reported posts from Genuine Norman, making liberal use of the word "libel". Like you say, laws are different in this country, and I can't see any being broken in this thread.
Even so, if there really are ongoing legal cases, it might be best to keep posts as factual as possible going forward, or if personal opinion / sarcasm / hyperbole / etc. are being used it should be clearly stated.
Merci beaucoup, mes amis.
