And the title of this epistle is not "French Prime Minister" but " French Post Mortem"

I simply cannot get excited by all the hyperbole and rhetoric, the posturing and the preening. The UK will exit the EU at the earliest most OPPORTUNE moment for US. Hollande can say what he wants its all a load of merde and he knows it, we have right on our side, we will declare Article 50 when it best suits us.David Davis is a tough cookie and our new PM will want to make a name for herself during the exit negotiations. She has impressed me thus far with the notable exception  of what appears to be a "toadying exercise" to toxic Nicola. The French have always stabbed us in the back. We fought and liberated their country after they capitulated to the Germans, we hosted their wartime Government in exile, we helped De Gaulle ride triumphantly through Paris afterwards as if he had played any significant part in it all and they then turned on us when it came to the then Common Market et al. Hollande is no better! His attention would be better served concentrating on the terrible terrorist atrocities carried out in his country by some of the huge number of Muslims who he let in through the EU auspices. France is also riven by and dictated to by the numerous trade unions that have a stranglehold on their economy,just as it was here in the 50s and 60s. To be honest we all know France and Germany NEED our imports of their goods to continue post Brexit. There will have to be compromises agreed by all parties but we should not forget that the concessions we might have to make there will be more than offset by the opening up of other global markets. Those other global markets will be fortunately unencumbered by the myriad petty and restrictive EU rules and regulations. Onwards and upwards, Egalite et Liberte or whatever they cry these days.

I hope that the EU stop their little tantrums and get down to the task of letting us go our own way without real bitterness. It is the inflexible way that they carry on - if they like it not, it is their problem not ours,we are just making sure it is UK who are running this country, not the other way round.As for the history of our relations with the rest of Europe for centuries, we seem to have been the saviour of most EU countries at one time or another, we should now see how they cope without the only present member is prepared to play our bit, but protecting OUR interests in all matters. Flexibility does NOT exist as far as the EU executive body are concerned, so I am in favour of leaving and watching their demise without us around to steady their leaky ship. Besides, if we had not been prepared to defend other continental friends in years gone by, 3DG would not have their unique Carbs Reveille!!!!
