Euroweenie Alert!
Ciar Byrne in the Guardian reports that:
The Sun could be forced to pay a £30,000 fine after branding the French president Jacques Chirac a "worm" in a special French edition handed out on the streets of Paris.
The tabloid's controversial stance breaks a French law that makes it a criminal offence to insult the president. Breaking the law carries a fine up 45,000 euros.
The French, who have strict privacy laws and no tradition of tabloid newspapers, are unaccustomed to such direct attacks on their politicians.

Jackanapes Chirac the worm boy

Y'all can bill me.
