"I'm French, f*** you!"

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Wed., 12/1/2011: At the end of today's press review, meet France's most obnoxious man (the headline is a direct quote!). We start with the British papers which are getting hot and bothered over whether France may have leapfrogged Britain to become America's closest ally. Also, unrest in Tunisia and Confucius facing up to Mao in Tienanmen Square.

There’s a part of the British press that is willfully dyslexic, says John Lichfield in The Independent. Obama said that the US has no stronger ally than France which does not mean France is America’s strongest ally, he insists.

The Guardian also covers the media furore in the UK.

We also take a look at coverage in Algeria’s El Watan of the continuing unrest in neighbouring Tunisia.

We finish with an article in the South China Morning Post about Confucius’s revival in China and a story in Gawker on “the most obnoxious Frenchman on Earth!”
