French President Nicolas Sarkozy reacted angrily to accusations that he had snubbed the British people by failing to invite British royals to the D-Day celebrations on June 6th.
"They were not invited because none of them were there," M Sarkozy said this morning. "We appreciate what the British did for us in the war, but the royals? They were all closet nazis, especially the one who abdicated with the Yank. He was Hitler's bosom buddy. But I digress.
"We didn't invite the royals because they weren't the people jumping out of landing craft under heavy fire into a blood red sea. Oh no. They left all the dirty work to the working classes. It is the British working classes, the American working classes, the Canadians, the Australians and New Zealanders we honour. Not the nazi sympathisers or their Greek love interests. They can fuck off as far as I'm concerned."
Historian Neville Neville of Bury University told us:
"Sarkozy has a point. There were no royals involved in the D-Day landings, or in any other WWII campaign either. I think it's fair to say that they were hedging their bets and were quite prepared to cosy up with Adolf if necessary."
