The Gypsy mayor who wants Gypsies to mix with everyone else

France has about half a million Gypsies but only one Gypsy mayor – and curiously, he is more popular with non-gypsy constituents than with his own people. Chris Bockman found out why.

The view is amazing: the imposing and well-preserved medieval towers of the citadel town of Carcassonne, set against the backdrop of the Black Mountains. It looks almost fake, like a film set.

This place gets more than two million visitors a year – but you won’t find the spot where I’m standing on anyone’s tourist map and most local people go out of their way to avoid it.
