Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Still better than the inauguration of the TGV Est when the French politicians had the train stop midway so that they'd reach the stop by plane...

The  story is that at the start of the inaugural train the journalists were told Fillon was working in car 11 ; the train made an unexpected 20 minutes stop in Nancy-Lorraine and afterwards the PM made himself available to the rest of the journalists... The Ecology minister at the time, Juppé, also came in the Falcon that was bringing Fillon !
