James May: how to bring France to its knees

James May applauds a British export success story in his latest Telegraph column. He's proud of our ability to export winter motoring chaos to continental roads:
French officials are imagining that British motorists are somehow 'forgetting' to fit snow chains, but I suspect they are 'forgetting' in the way that I 'forget' to give priorité à droite at the Arc de Triomphe. It's a stupid rule, and I won't be told how to drive around Europe's largest monument...

'I cannot believe the Breeteesh can be so stupeed,' [author's own accent] says Frenchman Philip Decapentree, a holidaymaker. But they're not stupid. They are simply upholding a great British tradition, cemented by Captain Oates, of going out into the snow incorrectly attired."


  • You can buy a set of emergency snow chains for as little as ¬£39.


    I'm going to get some after next pay day.
