What the???!!!

January 16th, 2007

Via Washington Monthly is this unbelievably strange story in the Guardian:

Britain and France talked about a “union” in the 1950s, even discussing the possibility of the Queen becoming the French head of state, it was reported today.

[…]

When Mr Mollet’s request for a union failed, he quickly responded with another plan – that France be allowed to join the British commonwealth – which was said to have been met more warmly by Sir Anthony.

What the hell? Strangest thing I’ve seen in months.
