Total CEO Patrick Pouyanne signed an accord Thursday with the Heritage Foundation, an organization handling the Notre Dame reconstruction payments. The money will be paid in installments from 2020 until the end of the work.
Loney Planet is reporting the same thing about Notre Dame that I covered at the end of last month, that the World Monuments Fund has added 25 places to its 2020 World Monuments Watch, a watch-list for cultural significance that need to be protected and that now includes Notre Dame.
When Notre Dame was on fire on the 15th of April, videos from police drones were instrumental in identifying and directing firefighters to the location of roof hotspots and the fire spread that could only be seen from the air.
“But with Johnson, we are in an ethical wild west. He doesn’t really believe in anything except himself. He is the career sociopath for whom other people are mere satellites orbiting a never satisfied.”

The main thing I notice about this isn’t the signature itself but that he hasn’t bothered to write ‘sincerely’ correctly. Now I’m not a graphologist but this seems to sum up Boris Johnson’s character for me.
You can’t believe anything he says without other independent facts.
What will be the result on the 12th of December? Who knows.
