1-0 : France’s President, Nicolas Sarkozy, got good publicity during the official state visit to Britain. Also, most of the UK media almost wet themselves over the appearance of his missus, Carla Bruni.
2-0: The French national football side beat their English counterparts by a single goal in Paris. Although David Beckham won his 100th cap, his team-mates’ performance was nothing to write home about.
Why is it that on, and off the field, the French seem to be more classier than us? Answers on a (virtual) postcard, please.
