The recent diagnosis of Kay Russell, 49, from Gloucestershire with Foreign Accent Syndrome (FAS) has been a major breakthrough in international relations.

Russell said friends who had known her for years suddenly did not recognise her on the telephone. The former sales executive, who used to have an unmistakably English accent suddenly started talking with a French accent. She became lazy insisted on going on strike, would take long lunches with a bottle of wine and wanted to expel people from her office accusing them of being Roma.

Following this outburst she was forced to give up her job. Extensive tests followed which revealed she had FAS as a result of brain damage.

Professor Mick Niller, an expert on FAS at Newcastle University, said: "This diagnosis is a major breakthrough in international relations. For some time we have suspected that the French were not all there. Now it is clear they all speak with a French accent because they are brain damaged. They have all totally lost their marbles".
