Jacques can do Jestures too .. ( and its not just movement of the sholders )

Well done to the French business man who started his EU presentation in English ( The international language of commerce, science, entertainment and just about anything else you'd want to know about ).

However Jacques Chirac didn't see the funny side and walked out. Later claiming he was defending the French language ..

How about a campaign to get Spanish or Chinese to replace French as the second language for the Olympics ? :-)
