Damn, this #Podcast changed my opinion of #McDonalds
Typically I'm against monopolistic, centralized authority, and concentrated power as an ethical imperative. This side of the #American #Burger invasion on the world was something I would have never guessed. I'm tempted to have a #European trip adjusted so that it makes a stop there in #Marseille, #France as a central point of the trip. The whole show made this neighborhood attractive to me.

Eighty-six people intercepted on Tuesday amid concerns about Calais camp closure

Border Force intercepted what is thought to be the highest number of migrants in a single day amid warnings the closure of a French camp could prompt a spike in the number of attempted Channel crossings.

Eighty-six people attempted the journey in small boats on Tuesday, with some landing on beaches before being detained, the Home Office said. It is thought to be the highest number of people intercepted by UK authorities on a single day so far.
