And In Really Important News...

Maybe they should have taken the opportunity to hold a quick vote to kick France out of the EU:

French President Jacques Chirac stormed out of the first session of a European summit today to snub a French businessman who switched into English to make an appeal for steps to boost economic competitiveness.

Chirac pulled France's foreign and finance ministers out of the session when French native Ernest-Antoine Seilliere, head of the European Union industry federation, launched into English, a French official told journalists in Brussels.

It really is tough to parody the absurd.
