The recent cringe-worthy visit of the First Man to France demonstrated the qualities of Gallic behaviour. Larger than life, self-satisfied and fundamentally hypocritical. Excusez-moi? Did you say those adjectives describe their No. One Visitor? Oh, yes, I hadn’t noticed. By all accounts the French populace were less than impressed.
Meanwhile, back in the real world (London) his demands for a ‘better reception’ when he deigns to grace us with his ineffable presence, were met with a straightforward, ‘Well, you know the British press’. So he should not hold his presidential breathe.
Says it all really.

CT, your use of the strangely pronounced ‘buoy’ is new to me. I can guess what it means but pls help.
Janus: He’s floating somewhere miles from reality. The opposition hold onto him and in doing so don’t sink entirely.
Meantime, here I am in sunny, breezy Sussex, to the sound of children celebrating the end of school until September – blissfully unaware of Le Continent not so far away. Bonnes vacances, mes amis et autres!
Janus: Please enjoy your holiday! The Continent will sort itself out, it always does — even if that involves lots of bollocks and the occasional decapitation.
