Debout, la République!

It’s far from being the most-watched, but I think that this has to be my favourite bit of footage to come out of either APEC or the G20.

Such a pity that we’re at the wrong angle to witness Putin’s Look of Death here; it appears to have been a particularly fine example of the art.

The French news announcer is trying valiantly to suggest that it was intended as a calculated snub on Hollande’s part, which is clearly rubbish. If it’s a calculated snub you do not immediately proceed to jump up as though your chair were made of fire and tin tacks.
