The Defence Secretary ( I bet he can't even type!) announced today that due to further defence cuts, he intends to bring 16,000 troops stationed in Germany back home. This puts us in rather a precarious position. How long will it be before the Krauts start thinking third time lucky!
It's bad enough that we already have to share an aircraft carrier with the French. History suggests that they aren't the most reliable of allies.
Their lack of enthusiasm in a brawl is a concern, but there are other issues that the aforementioned partnership raises. Which nation has control of the galley? The French have very different ideas as to what constitutes a palatable dish. They eat horses (by choice), frogs and snails. Pretty much anything that can be found dead in a pond on drainage ditch.
I would like to take a few liberties with French cuisine. Do you think that if the dishes were presented in the correct manner, the French would be able to tell the difference between frogs and toads, horse and zebra, or even slugs and snails?
