Hollande bans pork from Elysée Palace.

I reckon the tidbit you published about Hollande having banished pork at the Elysée palace is without substance.
Regarding the “pork” story, I think your reader Robert M. is right. I received the link from Europe News in my mailbox yesterday. I did a quick Google on the topic and found it was posted at numerous websites, all of them English-language. So I made a hasty judgment that it was authentic. Late in the day, I went to do a post on it for GalliaWatch, and found that the original French source Révoltés en Europe had shut down or had been forced to shut down. This led me to think it was a canard. I searched through most of the dependable French websites I normally use and found not a trace of the story, not even a hint about a canard. It looks as if the English-language sites found the item and posted it, before any French websites knew about it.
