How galling for the French

On a day when the French sought to belittle the enormous contribution that Britain made both in terms of money, resources and lives lost in freeing France from the tyranny of Nazi rule by seeking to sideline Britain in events to commemorate the D Day landings 65 years ago, there was something to put a smile on my face this afternoon.

At the end of the women's final in the French Tennis Open both Russian finalists made their speeches in English not French ! You could see the pained expressions on some of the French faces trying to hide their disgust that French had been abandoned in favour of English.

Oh it did make me smile !
