The learned gentleman seems to assume, as the foundation of his reasoning, and as the great argument for immediate treaty, that every effort to overturn the system of the French revolution must be unavailing; and that it would be not only imprudent, but almost impious, to struggle longer against that order of things, which, on I know not what principle of predestination, he appears to consider as immortal.
There is something brewing over The Channel, and with a World Cup looming it all seems to be simmering nicely in the land of Jeán-Pierre.
The Scotch do not seem to be the pushovers they have been in recent years yet Louis Baboon swatted the sweaties aside at Murrayfield. Ireland travelled to Paris after an exceptional run and were humbled. The Welsh, with a fired up Cardiff crowd, were silenced with a blue blitz in the first half. Earlier this year France travelled to New Zealand and won. They beat current world champs South Africa during the Autumn internationals.
Of course, Gallic flair is fine when it flows, but in times of crisis what those chaps over the water would do for a bit of English consistency. They are a bit like a spinner with an array of googlies, flippers, sliders and arm balls, but no stock ball. Or maybe an association football world XI without a goalkeeper.
Certainly one to look out for come the World Cup. Likewise, from afar Australia seem to be building upon something good, NZ are always the favourites, whilst England tend to be able to drag the rose to WC success against the odds. These four would remain my picks to take home the Webb Ellis trophy. It would be foolish to limit my options further, as it is yet so long away from the tournament.
