Kickback Jacques Betrayal

Whilst we all know the French President as a man of integrity, at the latest summit another side of the man we shall call Kickback Jacques was on display.
Tony Blair was humiliated yesterday when Jacques Chirac attacked Britain's £3 billion EU rebate hours after the Prime Minister had come to his aid in a row over economic reform.
A man whose calls for European Unity are legend, failed to provide the requisite example when offered an opportunity.
Instead of repaying the Prime Minister by avoiding sensitive issues before a likely May election in Britain, he went out of his way to complain about the rebate Margaret Thatcher won in 1984.
It would not be gentlemen like to point out how weak Kickback Jacques position is, but what the hell I will anyway.
Between 1984 and 2002 Britain paid £38 billion into the EU budget, compared with France's £19 billion.
So we can all see which country needs to be paying more and it is not the UK. If we had a Prime Minister with balls, they would point this fact out very forcefully, a point that is not lost on Chirac who said:
The rebate might have had some justification when it was secured by "Monsieur Thatcher".
But we all know that Tony will give up our cash as fast as possible, straight away after the election. We will have to wait until 2006 to get our revenge.
