Lol, Paddy.The French here seem to be intent on taking the Brits to the cleaners.
What with Brexit & all the attendant problems with the economy. Then there's your manufacturing , automobile industry,etc going belly up. Plus there's the desperate situation of RR.Add to that the RN behaving as if it were run by rank amateurs. All the more galling when you consider Brittania ruled the waves not so long ago. Of course, the mullahs in Iran must be laughing their arses off. As are the French here.
Ppl still love kicking a person when he's down. Especially the French when it comes to the Brits .
A real pity!!
