Non Sequitur #1

It costs a little less than 300,000 Euros to buy a three bedroom house in Metz, France. This includes your own garden, your play room, your cellar and a garage.

For the same price you could buy a two bedroom apartment in Sliema, Malta. No parking, no greenery, no playroom, no cellar and if you are lucky it has "walking distance to the sea" written in its description.

...and it's actually cheaper to buy a house here than it is in Metz.

in a few years there will be quite a few kids called Jean-Pierre Werner-Zammit and Marc Van Gudja - x'imhatra!

My garden, my playroom and my cellar! Shouldn't I have been consulted about this beforehand?
Anyhow, the sum still seems a bit steep for what is probably a country house on the outskirts of a provincial French town. In some highly picturesque parts of Southern Italy it is still possible to buy an unrenovated, three-bedroom house for quite a bit under a hundred thousand.
