Yes the constitution doesn't support any one religion, but that merely means it isn't a theocracy, which is not the same as secular. The preamble states the that the governments right to rule comes from God, article 44 says God is due homage, most rights are subject to "public morality", all of which is hardly secular. The articles on abortion, blasphemy and a woman's place being in the home are all heavily influenced by Catholic teaching.

Dankon, mia nomo estas miaj du plej ŝatataj aferoj - teo kaj libroj. Mi fartas tre bone, kvankam hodiaŭ estas malseka griza tago, sed tio kutimas en Irlando. Hieraŭ mi renkontis alian esperantiston danke al Amikumu. Ŝi estas germanino kiu vizitas mian urbon, do mi ĉiĉeronis por ŝi.

Talk about a wild exaggeration. Since when has there been an independence movement in the Isle of Man or the Outer Hebrides? There's barely a regional movement in Occitania or Normandy, let alone an independence movement. What is going on with Spain, where did they get the notion that Casille, Leon and Aragon want to be independent?

What was the standard for inclusion on the map? Was it just if some random person thought, hey wouldn't be cool if we recreated a medieval country? The map might as well be called "What if every region of Europe became its own country?"

Tl;dr Cool map, nonsense politics

The French president, Emmanuel Macron, is to spend hundreds of millions of euros boosting the French language worldwide, in a push to overtake English in Africa, increase the use of French online and teach French to more European officials to loosen the grip of the English language on Brussels.

This is the very first line of the article. You can't complain about promoting one imperialistic language while ignoring its even larger rival.

The article also says:

Macron stressed that France saw itself merely as a “country among others” in the vast French-speaking world. Crucially, he insisted that the diverse and thriving global literature in French – much by bestselling African writers – must now be taught in schools in France, where it is absent from the curriculum.
