Come come, we are far too critical of our French friends...after all they have definitely earned the right to be arrogant in my view.
Maybe their aircraft carrier ( at least they have one )can only go around in circles...but that's brilliant. Nothing will hit it.
While Armageddonistas are hugging trees & East Euros are freezing for the lack of gas (thank you Gerhard Schröder) which Putin can't find enough of for his own ilk, the Frenchies are expanding their nuclear power industry like it will go out of fashion...as it already has done in 'watermelon' Deutschland & the like.
And now look:
French contract law is very different from Anglo-Saxon law. A contract can be broken by either party if it is no longer in that party's interest.
Another example of quintessential French logical brilliance.
Sure they'd be more than happy to lend us that one.
For some time, my favouritest word has been "Abrogation."
