Why you should hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.

Forty French trawlers have clashed with five UK fishing vessels off the coast of France this week in an angry dispute over lucrative scallop fishing.

Details of the clash, in which French fishermen are said to have surrounded their British counterparts, and hurled rocks and other objects and fired flares at them, were revealed today by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO).

It was Nelson, of course, who said “you must hate a Frenchman you hate the Devil.” Seems like nothing has changed.
