"If the campaign sounds novel to British ears, it would be considered retrograde in France, where the equivalent of civil partnerships have been available to gay and straight couples alike since 1999. In 2009, some 95% of those taking up the pacte civil de solidarite (Pacs) were heterosexual."

Great service and friendly staff. Went to purchase speakers and an AV Amp, unfortunately they were out of stock of most things so they had them delivered to my house. They said to expect a wait of around 10 days actually only took 3!
