This weekend’s French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours is being targeted by a group of donkey-riding protestors, determined to drive Formula One out of the country.
The protest sees an anti-consumerism group mount their fourth annual attempt at “the suppression of the French Grand Prix of Formula One” by riding a donkey convey from Lyon to Magny-Cours.
The socialist group condemn Formula One as an “anachronistic leisure reserved for a score of spoilt rich brats”, complaining that the sport causes pollution and wastes the world’s resources.
Actually, considering the left’s large trustafarian component, that description—“an anachronistic leisure reserved for a score of spoilt rich brats”—sounds more like socialism.
The group is being led by Francois Schneider and his donkey Jujube. He has already mounted several donkey-centred-protests to support socialist causes.
How … apt. Francois, for your information, is “living now carfree in an organic farm near a small train station” where he “promotes conviviality, cycling, folk dance, acorn pâté and recently crepes of Jerusalem artichokes.”
