Chirac's untimely taunts (letter)by Frank BelletNews Weekly
, July 30, 2005
In view of the tragedy in London, the French President surely must be regretting his recent untimely comment that Britain's only contribution to European agriculture, was mad cow disease. I have no British forebears, however it annoyed me coming from him.
Another constant favourite target of his tongue is America.
Perhaps Chirac has been dining out on suspect British beef, because his ageing brain has forgotten that the French, who have not won a war in living memory, have an agriculture, thanks to their country being liberated by Allied forces, including British and Americans, whose many graves adorn his countryside.Frank Bellet,
