I `ad that Jean Jacques from the "Le Monde" in my cab last night. `ed been doing bits about the aggro in Mali which was a change from reporting on all the French millionaires doing a runner on the strength of Francois `ollande`s tax grab.
I said, "Bonsoir J.J. It`s a bloody shame about that French chopper pilot getting shot down and killed".
`e said, " Alors, Jeem. Eet was not shot down, eet was beecos of, ow you say, a mechanical failure."
I said, "Oh, yeah, I see. I suppose a ruddy great lump of shrapnel through the rotors could be described like that!!"
Whaddam I Like??
