Liberte, egalite, infidelite: French leaders.

There’s a lovely piece in today’s Sunday Times.

You’d have to look up the whole article for the stuff on just about every recent President, but the bit that tickled me most was the closing paragraph.

Charles de Gaulle was married to his wife Yvonne for nearly 50 years. Both were devout Catholics.

The first lady was reportedly asked during a presidential visit to Britain for the secret of their famously successful marriage.

“A penis,” she replied in heavily accented English, before being quickly corrected by her husband: “No, no my dear, I think you mean ‘appiness”.

Sadly, the story may be apocryphal.
