  1. Only a treaty, i seem to remember the fun loving happy go luck french are realy good at keeping those.

    french proverb ; comme nous le disons, la remise est la meilleure option.
    or in Gods English. As we say, surrender is the best option...............................
  2. What a good read! Thanks Sol - a good one to post whether or not the political balance suits or not, very enjoyable and sensibly constructed.
  3. Go easy on them, remember, The French have always been there when they've needed us. :roll:

  5. So the Frogs, sorry the French will be stepping up to the plate now and committing at least the same number of troops as we have serving in Afghanistan.
  6. Why would the French want to get any more involved in that mess?
  7. Well they wouldn't but they are NATO members and if they don't like it they should hand back their membership card.

    I agree, it's a mess.
  8. A mate has just reminded me of this....

    "Firstly you must always implicitly obey orders, without attempting to form any opinion of your own regarding their propriety. Secondly, you must consider every man your enemy who speaks ill of your king; and thirdly you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil’.

    Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson 1793.

  9. Hear hear!
    Now wheres my lunch of a nice runny Camembert and a glass of Burgundy :lol:
