COWBOY CONTAGION:

PM attacks Chirac's 'pathetic' power vision (Nicholas Watt, January 29, 2005, The Guardian)

Tony Blair yesterday risked a fresh row when he branded the policies of Jacques Chirac, the French president, as "dangerous" and "pathetic".

In a sign of cross-Channel tensions after the Iraq war, the prime minister showed contempt for two key elements of Mr Chirac's presidency: his attempts to turn Europe into a centre of power rivalling Washington and his personal relations with George Bush.


Geez, if everyone starts speaking their mind what'll diplomats do for a living?

Election season is on in Britain. It never loses you votes in Old Blighty to put down the 'Parlay voos.'
