Fireworks burst over Sydney Harbour to ring in the New Year at midnight, kicking off noisy celebrations for billions around the world to mark the end of 2011.
It’ll be interesting to know the tally for the annual “traditional” carbeques in France:
France’s “conservative” Â government has attempted to “combat” the immigrant-origin annual New Year’s car-burning orgy by refusing to release any figures about the incidents in the hope that the lack of publicity will ‘kill’ the story.
The torching of cars has become a New Year’s tradition in France, committed by thousands of rampaging African-origin “youths.” (Koranimals)
According to figures released after New Year’s Eve in 2009, some 1,137 cars were torched, while some 1,147 were burned the year before.
Now, however, in typical cowardly conservative fashion, the Sarkozy-regime has set decided that no figures will be released at all this year.
“The French government is determined to stamp out these scenes of anarchy as part of its highly-publicised campaign against crime,” the France24 news service announced, following Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux order for a news blackout.
