Yes, not reported elsewhere, as far as I can see.
On the point about Islam, worth noting that the Corsican flag shows a severed Moor’s head…

As a Frenchman and like many of my fellow citizens……I would love to see the plug pulled on this basket case island. To get a grip of the mentality, it is worth reading “ Colomba” by Prosper Merimé. It is 19 th century but the revenge and violence culture is the same…….reminds me of “Broken April” by Ismael Kadare littérature Nobel price. Same kind of violent culture.
This place is a basket case that Raymond Barre former prime minister wanted to see independent. But guess what…..what they want is the french money and be left alone to do their local shady business.
As a continental french you are as welcome as root canal work and God knows how many continental second homes have blown up.
Why would the UK press be interested?

Had many lovely holidays in Corsica. It’s beautifully rugged. The people are tough but hospitable. The feeling of hatred for France is almost palpable. Can’t wait to visit again.

” How can he be at once innocent and a freedom fighter? This contradiction is rarely addressed by his young worshippers.”

Easily addressed Mr Lichfield … if he’s your ‘Freedom Fighter’ he is no terrorist !

Interesting given that Micron has directly encouraged separatism in Northern Ireland and indirectly in Scotland. What goes around comes around.

It’s a French habit. DeGaul said, ” vivre Quebec libbre in Ottawa” when invited to Canada’s centennial celebration. The French leaders enjoy raising shit and going back to Paris aipertifs.
