Re: C'est moi encore une fois

'Cela ne passera jamais'

Could be said by optimists contesting Guéant's speed trap ideas - 'That will never be accepted' - 'They'll never get away with that' - as in that idea/proposal/motion will never pass/be passed/ will never get a majority vote.

Could you please tell us what this text is that you're translating. As others have stated, 'Context is All'. Odd extracts are untranslatable.

Good luck,

Andrew 44

Could also be said of a tractor trying to pass between two houses in a gap far to narrow for the width of its wheels.....
