Lellouche said he had made his displeasure known to shadow foreign secretary William Hague personally. \”They have one line and they just repeat one line. It is a very bizarre sense of autism,\” he said.
I thought that was Gordo with Aspie\’s?
But as a piece of political advice:
Mr Lellouche said he was reflecting Nicolas Sarkozy\’s \”sadness and regret\” at David Cameron\’s recently-announced plan to strengthen British sovreignity, warning it would \”castrate\” the country\’s position within the EU.
What should be the response to that?
But Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague insisted Mr Lellouche\’s views were not widely-held.
\”I don\’t think you will find that\’s representative of the reaction in Paris or other European capitals,\” he told BBC2\’s Newsnight.
No Willy, that\’s not the correct response. The way to get England behind you is to say \”Well, of course, that\’s Mr. Lellouche\’s view and of course he\’s entitled to it. But since when does an Englishman care what a Frenchman thinks?\”
You\’d have half the nation marching to Portmouth and readying the Victory for sea and the other half at home knitting socks and scarves for the campaign ahead.
Might not be all that effective a military campaign of course but it would certainly win you some votes.
