Cartes woes – deal with it

What a lot of hot air has been expressed re: cartes de séjour

Your paper’s ongoing advice was sound and all living in France on a permanent basis should renew or apply for one. Surely, Lord Lawson will have to apply just like anyone else, wait in line and have his fingerprints recorded.

We have just updated our carte and I did not consider the demands for specific information too onerous – and as for proving where and how long we have lived at our present property, our mairie provided a written text to this effect in five minutes.

Readers who get all hot under the collar about this issue should remember, we live in another country and they make their own rules.
