From the Financial Times:

Jacques Chirac, French president, on Thursday night stormed out of a European Union summit after a French industrialist began addressing leaders of the bloc in English.

Mr Chirac and two senior ministers walked out in protest at the decision of Ernest-Antoine Seilliere, head of the Unice employers organisation, to make a plea for economic reform in ‘the language of business’.

Symbolic for the troubled times in the EU?
