French Asylum for Maurice Kirk.

Not since the French Revolution have Brits been granted political asylum in France - but Maurice Kirk tells us that he has been given sanctuary at Rennes today.

According to the information, the dangers that he might be shot, or sectioned, in Wales were enough to convince the French authorities to offer him their protection.

It’s a modern “Tale of Two Cities” - between Rennes and Cardiff.

Maurice’s attempts last week to gain protection in Guernsey (where he stood for election many years ago) or Alderney, were not successful and we interviewed him just before he left Jersey.

Perhaps the Prince of Wales, and his good wife, should seek protection in France too?
