You and the kids can enjoy the bloodbath of Waterloo!

Plans to build a Disneyland-style theme park dedicated to Napoleon have angered a writer whose job is poking fun at the French.

Former government minister Yves Jégo plans to build the park at Seine-et-Marne, just south of Paris and the site of the emperor's final victory against the Austrians in 1814.

M Jégo insists the park will be impartial, featuring Bonaparte's defeats as well as his victories. There will also be a ski run through a battlefield "surrounded by the frozen bodies of soldiers and horses" and a recreation of the guillotining of Louis XIV.

"It's going to be fun for all the family," said M Jégo.

"Trust the bloody French to come up with something so bonkers it just can't be Spoofed," said EIF News and Features French Affairs Correspondent, Lemuel Threep. "How am I supposed to do my job when they come up with schemes like this?"
