Nice one Andy, but I`m less sure about the French love of the Brits. One time we were checking into a hotel up, country reception gave us the key, checked the passports and said, "I thought you were English, have this key instead". It may have been a worse room, but I doubt it.
I found the French very tolerant of the use of English, except the railway clerk who deliberately sent us in the opposite direction to Versailles.
