The UK government is hoping the French will shrug off their laissez faire attitude and help with the build up of traffic crossing the Channel after Brexit.

A petition has been signed by over 400 MPs apologising for jokes they made in the past about the French.

The remaining cast of ‘Allo ‘Allo has also been assisted in signing the form and said they would only do it once.

One MP, who did not want to be named, said: “I used to go around saying ‘ooh la la’ and talking with a nasally French accent. I’m so ashamed. It wasn’t funny. It was much funnier when I took the ‘oui oui’ out of the Germans.” The MP chortled.

Another MP said: “I’ve nothing against the French. My sister-in-law’s French and a hot bit of stuff she is, too, but we had to get behind this petition if we don’t want traffic backing up all the way to Yorkshire.”

The government is to ask the French to assist with border control on the French side of the Channel to prevent disruption to freight. They offered to waive tariffs on onions, garlic and baguettes but the French weren’t impressed.

The French said it was not their problem and hinted that the plethora of French jokes was a major stumbling block in negotiations.

The government hopes the petition will enforce the Entente Cordiale and offered the French to share some English jokes if that would make them feel better.

The French replied:

“Q: What do you call a smart and attractive couple in the UK?

“A: Tourists.”

The Brexit and border control negotiations continue.
