BICH- I don't remember the French singing the English national anthem or flying the Union or St Georges flag after 7/7.

ISIL will soon be realise that the way to stop the French army on horseback is to turn off the carousel. And talking of facts here's one- The French are always there when they need us!

As already stated, we didn't play them four days afterwards so how could they?

I think your xenophobia has overcome you.

Careful.... he doesn't trust foreign-sounding words like "xenophobia".

I did discover a guaranteed foolproof way of completely curing even the most virulent anti-french person in the world...

...just spend a few days in the company of French-Canadiens (Les Quebecois) Rolling Eyes

Did the French hold a one minute silence after 7/7? It's got very little to do with whether there was a football match 4 days after 7/7. One only has to look at the French attitude to the UK with the way they deal with the migrants in Calais. The Brit customs officers catch the illegals and have to hand them over to the French police. The French police escort the illegals off the premises and release them to try again. The French laugh at the British After all, it is France the migrants are trying to leave.Why don't the illegals want to stay in France? We know the answer don't we. The French police even stopped a chief suspect in the recent atrocities AND THEN LET HIM GO.

Xenophobia? Moi? I have never been musical and certainly if I was, a xenophobe would not be my instrument of choice.

I have. The Germans were about to take over Verdun. The French were preparing to evacuate the east bank of the river Meuse when the British started the offensive on the Somme. This prevented the Germans from sending more troops to Verdun and led to the Germans calling off the attack.

So- once again, the French were saved by the British.

Sounds more like Al Murray or Alf Garnett.

I'm not sure but I am sure that someone will enlighten me.

The proposed singing of the French national anthem, is this replacing the respectful one minutes silence?

No, why would it? They will play the anthems anyway. If the English want to sing along, cool. No problems if not. But I'm sure there will be a one minute silence, and I'm sure it will be respected.

Significantly fewer than the British (less than half).

If there were a one minute silence at the Broadfield, no-one would notice.

What the French did or didn't do in the past is quite irrelevant to the here and now. We are faced with a common enemy who strikes indiscriminately. We should be united in our opposition and demonstrate that any way we can.

He's right, Britain & France should stand together and attack Belgium.... any nation that allows chips to be eaten with mayonnaise must always be regarded with utmost suspicion..!
