Apparently, while driving through town yesterday she spotted a car with French number plates which had sheets of A4 stuck on the window with the offending tripe. Now I wonder is it a coincidence or have they gone to the trouble of sending out a fleet of numpties across Europe to spread their garbage?
I don't know if they have sent out drivers advertising it, however it would have been interesting to check the department code on that car plate (in former plate type it was the two rightmost digits, in newer plate type it's in smaller size on the right side of the plate), I would expect a car owner living in the Paris-Ile de France area (dept. code 75) and surrounding region (dept. codes 91 to 95), possibly working in the Paris urban area ("intra muros") more hit by the psychological impact of what happened and likely to have participated to the march
(ok, stopping that car and asking the driver wouldn't have been so easy for your wife and would have probably caught the attention of all the bystanders, police included).
A French living abroad could have watched it all on tv and chosen that way to display support to his people.
At least it goes to show the effectiveness of the operation on the general public through the media.
