Ooh la la!

York Press: Ooh la la! Ooh la la!

IN The Press of March 27 Kersten England told us what a great heritage we have to show off to the world, and then told us that York would be changed into a Paris street scene. Why?

Then we had Gary Verity in what surely must have been a spoof story about how he blagged his way around Yorkshire with his French mates, who think everything is so sexy.

And what exactly does Mr Verity have against our coal-mining heritage?

I challenge him to stand in Castleford market and offer his thoughts.

As for those nasty southerners not being able to point on a map at Yorkshire, they could certainly point at Mr Verity in his snazzy Jeff Banks gear.

Forget my suit, just knock 1.9 per cent off my tax bill out of the cash bonanza, please.

Keith Isaac, Byron Drive, York.

It all depends on which street in Paris she's talking about, is it going to be like one from the run down suburbs?, or like one from Montparnasse on the left bank of the River Seine well known for its cafes, bars and restaurants specialising in crepes?

Bit of a sour grapes letter, without much thought. TdF is a huge international event which will show case York at the fraction of the cost advertising would cost. Surrounding Tory council seems to think it is a good idea too.

If TdF is not an economic positive for York, I will eat my beret!
