You do know Jean that a pom is a kinda term of endearment from Aussies towards the British, so I find it surprising a Frenchman from the back waters of France using that very word, just out of interest jeannie how does pom translate from Aus to French?


Depends on the Aussie, it is for most but not for some, just watch the Aussie film Wolf creek for an extreme example! :SHIFTY: :SHIFTY: :SHIFTY:

The term "Pom" or "Pommie" or "Pommy" is frequently used by Australians and it was Richard "Sticky" Stuart's use of the term that was contained in the headline from Stuart's press conference recently. I have copied Stuart's terminology.

Carcassone is not a backwater of France. It is a town with a rich cultural history that is revered in France. It is also on the train lines connecting Toulouse to Perpignan.

95% of this thread is Jean talking to no one but himself. I thought it may be interesting - obviously not.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how does Carcassonne compare to cultural Chorley, be honest here Jean.
