Asked what was discussed at the Sarkozy lunch, the PMOS said that it was a wide-ranging discussion, as you might imagine, which went over Europe, the Middle East, and other relevant issues climate change included. As you’d expect its range was wide. Asked what was on the menu and more importantly was the chef French, the PMOS said if the reporter waited half an hour or so he would cook up a response.
Asked if there were any plans for the Prime Minister to meet Madam Marie-Ségolène Royal, the PMOS said, as he had said this morning, if Madam Royal were to come to London and asked to meet the Prime Minister, he was sure the Prime Minister would meet up with her but it is entirely a matter for her.
Asked if the discussions with Monsieur Sarkozy were in French, the PMOS said that quite a lot of it was in French, as the Prime Minister enjoys speaking in French which is a bit of a bind for those of us who are less fluent
