Sarkozy loves Gordon Brown in a non-sexual way

Sarkozy loves Gordon Brown in a non-sexual way

The Guardian’s Andrew Sparrow flags a very strange excerpt from the Financial Times’s account of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s “finest moment” — his 2008 bank rescue plan:

Tom Fletcher, Mr Brown’s private secretary, recalls Nicolas Sarkozy, French president, telling the prime minister at the height of the crisis: “You know, Gordon, I should not like you. You are Scottish, we have nothing in common and you are an economist. But somehow, Gordon, I love you.” Mr Sarkozy hastily added: “But not in a sexual way.”

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
