"Sir" Paul McCartney returns to be awarded this time by the French government with the medal of the Legion of Honor of the French nation. The services of the French Ministry have commented, as reasons to give the musician the distinction, his "work" and "commitment" in the defense of the environment.
This Saturday the Elysee Palace, seat of the French government, has received a special visit on the occasion of the award of the singer from Liverpool, Paul McCartney, from the president of the French Republic, François Hollande.
Accompanied by his family, former bassist of The Beatles welcomes 70 years one of the highest decorations of a government out of their home country. McCartney was awarded the title of "Sir" in 1996 to receive the knighthood of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II of England.
It was initially reported the event, which was on the official agenda of the French president, without specifying the award was given to exbeatle. Later, in a brief statement, it was reported that Paul McCartney was going to award the Legion of Honor in an officer.
The French daily "Le Figaro" recalled the officer rank is immediately below that of knight, received distinction itself actresses Salma Hayek and Kristin Scott Thomas.
But it's not detract from the event which led to Paul McCartney at Elysee Palace. British artist wants all his Twitter followers were witnessed what was living. At the end of the celebration came a few pictures to your personal social network for all to see, with the humility that characterizes the singer, how François Hollande rewarded British singer in the middle of one of the great halls of the Palace and surrounded by an entourage of people and some more outside the official venue.
And how could it be otherwise, since the web "Rue89" tena wanted to find any discussion and imply that this celebration was more for political reasons than for cultural reasons.
Thus, comparing the current situation of the country, and half the world, with quotes from the hit songs of The Beatles, the policy section of this media said that the issue of unemployment in France, ideally the song "We Can not Work It Out". Referring to disagree with most policy: "It's getting better all the time", in negotiations with German Chancellor Angela Merkel: "When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide", and, putting more yaga finger in to get the colors to the French government, the issue of the declining standard of living compared to the French song "Everyone of us has all we need".
Everything a display of knowledge of songs and a good memory, but not use any Internet browser to remember all the letters of the group's hits Liverpool.
Félicitations "Sir" McCartney!
