    Seems more like the usual sniping that goes on between France & England as opposed to a type of racism.

    I thought we'd grown out of it. I mean, I can make enough French jokes myself, but then I'm a 5th generation immigrant from there, so I'm allowed :)

    This sort of open, main theme bantering on a national newspapers online site is a bit offputting though.

    encule de francais!
