I've tried everything - except the easiest way - so here it is, the easiest way! Will it work?

Dear Johnny Foreigner.
It is with most regret that I read and hear of the distrain that M.Chirac has for British cooking, after all he's being wined and dined in the Capital of the North on the best porridge and Haggis. Could it be that it was the wine ripened on the bonnie banks of Greenock or was the waiter was wearing a skirt? Who knows. I think he is just still stamping his foot over the Frenchies common sense in rejecting his referendum. Has he ever tried the French cuisine of one potato shaped like a flower, french beans arranged in the shape of the hotels initials, a button of rice surmounted by two pieces of undeclared Mad Cows beef and all decorated by a sauce that one in unable to eat with either a knife fork or spoon. Now if Chirac had been taken across the border to Harry Ramsdens for a plate of crispy cod, doorstep sized chips and mashy peas, would he still been sulking with his good and sensible country men and women? Better still he should take a trip down to Vauvert for one of the Marquis specials. Who cares about his deflated referendum ego, who cares where the Olympics are in 7 years time, I don't. Give me a Gros pain, a large piece of French cheese maybe a pastis and good health and M. Chirac and Tony Blair can kiss my proverbial. Love as always, Sally Forth and Gerry Attric
