Talking 2012

yeppy, London beat the French for the Olympics. I would just love to see Chirac eating his words!!! That will teach him (probably not) to slag off England!

This morning I got thinking that New York would be more convenient though

Kind of appropriate, what with it being so close to the aniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar

Hummm, I don't think that Beckham can win anything with a speech. He's better sticking to football.

And yes, with the celebrations of the Battle of Trafalgar, it's a week of "in your face" to the French!!!

I do believe that brit-beef is the main course at Glenagles tonight...urk urk phnarr phnarr a nice thickly cut slice, maybe Monsieur Chirac might choke a little. Not too much. Just enough to get him red faced and spluttery. And maybe sweat a little too.

It's only effect will be to raise taxes across the board - as if Labour needed any more excuses to to do so, be done badly - aka Millennium Dome and any thing else that the government of any persuasion have a finger in, and will make Tony even more smarmy - if that's possible.

Sorry it's late.

I heard the news on the local radio in Riviere-du-Loup, halfway to Gaspe. I was amused that they had a statement from Chirac and none from anyone in England but, fair play to Chirac, he was disappointed but wished Blair and the UK well.

He only wished them well after he had made a comment about the typical British weather (it was raining).
He must be the worst diplomat amongst world leaders ever.
His dig at the British EU rebate to deflect his failure in the constitution referendum has just backfired with the CAP policy now looking bad for France.
He must take credit for loosing the Olympics with those choice words about British cuisine and more importantly Finlands food being worse!
Derr! Goodbye two IOC Finnish votes that would have brought it to France!

The Olympics is a great coup for the UK but Britain will pay through the nose for it. Then again what price can you put on such a moral booster.
