Chirac under fire after slamming 'terrible' British food

UK - President Jacques Chirac has heightened Anglo-French tensions on the eve of the 2012 Olympics host city decision with jibes about British food. Mr Chirac reportedly made undiplomatic jokes about mad cow disease and "terrible" food to Russian President Vladimir Putin and Germany's Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder at a weekend meeting. The French leader began with a taunt about the British and BSE, saying: "The only thing they've ever done for European agriculture is mad cow".
