Jacques Chirac R.I.P.

Jacques Chirac, who has died, was a crook and a Eurofederalist but he deserves a statue in Trafalgar Sq because he was the man who urged us and the Americans not to invade Iraq.

At the meeting to decide whether the Olympics should be held in London or Paris President Chirac was picked up by a mike saying that England had the worst food in Europe except Finland's. The next day London beat Paris by one vote, Finland's.
