Whenever I worry that the Anglo-American relationship may be fraying because of a British rapprochement with Continental Europe, Jacques Chirac always promptly comes to the rescue:
"One cannot trust people whose cuisine is so bad," it quotes Mr Chirac saying.[...]"The only thing they have ever done for European agriculture is mad cow disease," Mr Chirac said, according to the newspaper's report.
"After Finland, it is the country with the worst food."
It's good that the British be reminded of Chirac's pigheadedness right before the G8 summit.
