The visit of Emmanuel Macron has caused me to dwell on exactly how understated the French can be. Who, other than the French, would ever dream of calling such a beautiful bridge over the River Seine the “New Bridge” (Pont Neuf). boring bâtards.
If we ever build a bridge across the English Chanel (in French La Manche) I sincerely hope is not named – Le pont de Boris. Personally I prefer – Le pont à brexit.
