France gets it's act together

France has sent a stiff complaint to Brussels about the European Union’s choice of logo to commemorate its 50th birthday next year (EUobserver )

In a letter to José Manuel Barroso, President of the EU Commission, They say they object to the logo becuse it is in English and it looks like an inferior version of the logo for Google. They hate the playful R (registered in a circle) which makes the Union look like a commercial product.

French voters rejected the European Constitution last year in a referendum largely because the Union is seen as an Anglo-Saxon commercial venture.

The logo cost €200,000 (£134,000)

How do you say Caveat Emptor in french
