British -vs- French: From the Top

The British-French antagonism expressed in much thug literature is evident at the top. At the G8 summit, French President Chiraq insulted British cooking:
The only thing [the British] have ever given European farming is mad cow ... You can't trust people who cook as badly as that," he said. "After Finland, it's the country with the worst food.

What I wonder is what "Le Ver" has against the Finns!
No 10 reacted with disbelief, saying it would not respond to such undiplomatic comments. British officials were particularly angered by the mad cow remark, saying that France had exacerbated the BSE crisis by refusing to accept British beef after it had been declared safe.
So, it's "steak 'n kidley" for us in class on Wednesday!
