French or English?

Sitting in the BA lounge in Vancouver yesterday I spotted this gem in Time magazine:

Ernest Antoine Selliere, the french head of UNICE, the European employers group, openened his address to the EU spring summit with the words “I am going to speak in English – the language of business”.

In protest at this perceived slight, French President Chirac walked out.

I like Ernest Antoine Selliere already.
