Tony Blair has made a speech addressed to the French people. As far as I understand, he said that the recent riots show that they are not able to control themselves so he has been kind to help them as well as the new president, Nicolas Sarkozy, who is Blair's friend and who decided to have some vacation now.
Blair has generously declared himself to be the ruler of France. The new leader recalled some painful moments of the history such as the Hundred Years' War and emphasized that Britain can't afford to lose again.
He noticed that his leadership shouldn't lead to any problems because his French is better than French spoken by most of the French citizens before the Anschluss. ;-)
