Well, I was 'oping to grab zee victory from the jaws of defeat, but mon-a-me it was not to be. Cest la pathetique! non-result!
Meester 'Olland is now preparing to take over my residence. I wonder can I afford zee supermodel wife without my Leaders salary?
Maybe i just leave her here for the new resident? She is not French, she does not read the newspapers, she will not realise I have lost. I will tell her I am away on business for a few days?
