Boris Johnson has erupted into polished franglais during a question and answer session with the press in Washington as the Prime Minister lost his temper with Emmanuel Macron over the French President’s reaction to the new alliance between the UK, US, and Australia. Sam Coates told Sky News: “Switching into peerless franglais, the Prime Minister said ‘Prenez un grip and donnez-moi un break.’

“In other words get a grip and give me a break,” added the Deputy Political Editor,

Speaking to reporters in Washington, the Prime Minister said: “I just think it’s time for some of our dearest friends around the world to prenez un grip about this and donnez moi un break.

“Because this is fundamentally a great step forward for global security.

“It’s three very like-minded allies standing shoulder to shoulder creating a new partnership for the sharing of technology.

“It’s not exclusive, It’s not trying to shoulder anybody out. It’s not adversarial towards China, for instance.”

Paris has reacted angrily at being left out of the new anti-China alliance. 

The decision by the Australian Government to ditch a supply deal with France for submarines in favor of a joint British-American agreement has also triggered a war of words with Paris.

On Tuesday, Conservative MP Tom Hunt dismissed the outcries from France as “childish” when asked to give his view on BBC Politics Live.
