Notre-Dame-des-Landes, c’est fini
It’s over, after only half a century. The government has decided that the airport planned for Notre-Dame-des-Landes will not be built. Instead, the existing airports at Rennes and Nantes will be expanded. The “Defense Zone” manned by armed ecologists (sic) must be evacuated by the fall. And thus ends a textbook case in how not to govern.
