He seems to have a thing for older women. Much older women.

For someone so high up among the French elite with the requisite specialist schools, ENA and all of that, his English is a bit clumsy and awkward.

He probably means 'delightful'!

He seems to have a thing for GILFs alright!

PM's wife's husband was the famous barrister? Was he the same guy who represented the Peter Wright in the Spycatcher court case?

I see they have an excellent term in French to describe this situation - words that sound the same in two languages, but having quite different meanings "faux amis" which I see now is in the linked article. Never mind.

Reminds me though of the time I looked up the French word for 'kiss' and got 'baiser', but was told quick enough by my female french teacher, not to 'use that word' especially as a verb.

The real question is how appropriate it is for a foreign leader to be proposing to eat the spouse of another foreign leader, not necessarily how good that spouse tastes.

Another classic is the word "introduire", which seems to be the equivalent of the English "to introduce". I know of more than person who used it when introducing people, instead of the verb "presenter".

The verb "introduire" has a meaning relating to animal husbandry practices, where they will introduce the mare to the stallion.

Faux amis are a minefield.

I dont think Macrons English is that good, despite the fact he would undoubtedly have had years of lessons.

Its still better than Trumps, though.

It's pretty good, but very heavily accented in the manner of 'Allo 'Allo. He actually speaks better when he's not reading it.

Even very good French/English speakers fall into the faux amis trap.

What is it with Macron. If a woman is under 80, he won't even look at her.

It's like he was wired wrong or something.
