Now, we love a Frenchie as much as the next man, but this makes us want to throw our croissants in the bin, put out our Gauloises and pour our Sauvignon Blanc down the drain. OK, maybe not that last one.

Love a woman in uniform

Now, we’re not ones for pomp (Pump class on a Friday, yes. Pomp, no). And we won’t have circumstance in the house. But when it comes to pomping and circumstancing the 65th anniversary of D-Day, we do think the French need to remember who was involved.

It has come to light (and we – for once! – are at one with The Daily Cunt) that French authorities have declined to invite any member of the Royals to the ceremony, even though they have made it very clear they would like to attend. Meanwhile, they are falling over their short little selves (that’s a dig at Sarkozy, btw) to get Obama there.

That’s fine. He’s hot. We get it. But let’s not forget that The Queen is the only head of state who was actually serving in the armed forces at the time. Oh, yes. See above. She can fix a lorry and drive a tractor and everything.

Besides which, the Royals, like ’em or not, do continue to put their sons and grandsons next to the rest of the fighting men, even on the front line *stirring version of The National Anthem, maybe sung by Shirley Bassey starts* unlike the politicians who get us into these wars, whose offspring tend to work every connection they have to get glamorous high-paid jobs in the media or somesuch.

Sort it out Sarkozy or we’ll start talking about how your wife looks like she’s got false teeth.

*Lesson ends. Glass of Sauvignon Blanc gets poured*

  2. They suffer under the illusion that they freed themselves in WWII. And somewhere on the Beeb there’s a nice article about how de Gaulle forbade black americans and north african forces to march in the Paris victory parade. Might be nice to invite the real liberators this time, Our Betty included.

  4. I once read an interview with Tony Bennett, off-of singing, and he said that when he helped liberate the concentration camps, American forces were still segregated. So you had the weird situation of seeing how discrimination worked at extreme levels during the day then going back to barracks where you weren’t allowed to talk to people of a different race!

  5. I think Betty should just crash the party anyway. In a big helicopter. With Wills at the controls and Harry shirtless hanging out the back (off the helicopter, not Wills)
