Cote d'Azur and the socially undesirables

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa, Allow the Burkini

Submitted by myth (Germany), Aug 26, 2016 at 20:25

There are places along the Cote d'Azur which have special rules. In some places, Cannes among them, cars with caravans and campervans are not even allowed to stop on the coastal road, let alone park. The intention is of course to keep the people out, not the vehicles. Cannes regards campers as socially undesirables.

I assume the burkini-ban flows from the same intention.

What is of course desirable is the sand beach which is artificial.
