Sun brands Chirac 'Saddam's whore' Ciar Byrne

The Sun: 'Your president... has behaved like a Paris harlot'

The Sun has renewed its attack on the French, branding President Jacques Chirac "Saddam Hussein's whore"
:lol:
in a special Paris edition that has once again caused fury in the highest echelons of French government.
French ministers and newspapers including the left-leaning Liberation called on the public to stand up to hostility from the British tabloid as the nation finds itself at the target of heightened Francophobia in the UK and US media.
:o
Thousands of copies of the French Sun were distributed at metro stations in the capital, describing Mr Chirac as a "Paris harlot".
:lickout:
The front page featured pictures of Mr Chirac and Saddam side by side. The accompanying text read: "Cherchez la difference [spot the difference]. One is a corrupt bully who is risking the lives of our troops. He is sneering at Britain, destroying democracy and endangering world peace. The other is Saddam Hussein."
:dance:
Inside a Sun cartoon depicted Mr Chirac in stilettos and a blonde wig being solicited by a sleazy Saddam driving a car, with the Moulin Rouge and Eiffel Tower in the background.
:pimp: :smlove:
The stunt followed a similar Paris edition last month in which the Sun labelled Mr Chirac a worm.
:splat:
On its back page the Sun addressed French readers: "The whole civilised world, not just Britain, is disgusted with the way France's president and politicians have behaved over Iraq."
:puke: :pukeface:
"Last month we accused Chirac of behaving like a worm. Today we say to the people of France: we did not go far enough. Your president is not just a worm. He has behaved like a Paris harlot."
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
The Sun's taunts follow an official complaint made by France's foreign minister, Dominique de Villepin, about the strong language used in the British parliament to describe France's stance on the conflict with Iraq.
:angry:
Leftwing French newspaper Liberation has accused George Bush and Tony Blair of "stirring up latent Francophobia"
:steaming:
in an editorial. "By pandering to the outrageous nationalism of parts of their electorate, they risk leaving the west with deep and lasting divisions. France must resist this dangerous drift," the paper warned.

<span style='color:red'>Under French law it is a criminal offence to insult the president, carrying a fine of up to 45,000 euros (£30,000).</span>
:whip: :whip: :whip: :splat:
