Ou est le microlight?

Posted in Geography, Grammar & usage, In the news by uninformedcomment on January 26, 2010

From The Times, a news item about the tragically fatal loss of a microlight aircraft off the coast of France:

"Two French customs cutters were sent to cruise along the coast where it was thought Mr Bromage might be found, but were hampered by not knowing his exact position. "

“Exact position”? Maybe The Times has a Francophobe writer. Wouldn’t surprise me; that particular racism is rife here, even in 2010.
