France Versus England: October is the time
14 October 1066 - Battle of Hastings - a chap called Guillaume Le Conquérant, later renamed William The Conqueror, crossed the Channel and for some time the official language of England was French. This was before the European Union tried to rule Britain.
25 October 1415 - Battle of Agincourt - English and Welsh armies defeated a French army in France and the English tried to tell France that they should speak English as their main language, something the French still very much oppose.
An Italian called Carlo Buonaparte and his wife Marie Letizia Buonaparte had a son in Corsica and they called him Napoleone Buonaparte. After a revolt in Corsica, the Buonaparte family fled to France where Napoleone Buonaparte became Napoléon Bonaparte and decided to become Emperor of France.
21 October 1805 - Battle of Trafalgar - rather than sorting out their differences on land, problems were solved at sea and the French and the Spanish were definitely convinced that it was not a good idea to try and conquer England.
Having said that, the message had to be repeated on 18 June 1815 at Waterloo, about 8 miles South by South East of Brussels.
Unfortunately, the French are persistent and never give up. Since they lost in Waterloo, they are now trying to use Brussels to finally enslave the British.
They couldn't do it when they were run by an Italian and they are trying again with Nicolas Sarkozy who is of Hungarian, Greek Jewish and French Catholic heritage. You could say that some things never change. There is always some bloody foreigner trying to ruin everything.
Taking records into account, final decisions regarding the new Euro Treaty might take place in October 2012 at the Battle of Brussels. Notwithstanding, it must be said that if Le Pen is mightier than the Sword, such battle might never take place.
