    He's speaking live now and there's this bing bong bong sound keeps going off.

    Not sure if it's a coded emergency signal or if someone's playing soundbite bingo with him.

    Ah, they just explained it's a 3-minute beeper for when they go over.

    I liked the idea of bingo but when he mentioned Martin Luther King and no beeps went I suspected it wasn't really that.

    That's probably a counter of the number of air miles being clocked up by self-important politicians cashing in. It's like video conferencing was never invented.

    I wish I was a "leader" with my own a jet. Then I could fly to Paris and hang with my leader pals for two weeks with all expenses paid so I can sign up to to non-binding resolutions which present imaginary solutions to an imaginary problem. Then I'll need another golfing holiday in Hawaii because I'll be exhausted from all that leadership.

    It makes simultaneous translation difficult?

    Most French people can speak English, they just choose not to.
