I shouldn’t think so Shane. Folks were a lot less sensitive in those days and didn’t go looking for reasons to take offence. The French call the English "Les Rosbifs" in the same way we call them Frogs and, whilst the thinner skinned, may take get upset I consider it to be good natured mickey taking between the two nations.
If we want to be offensive we can do better than "Frogs" and call them "cheese eating surrender monkeys" but, after the recent performance by the Royal Navy in the Persian Gulf, I think we’d do well to keep our mouths shut in the future. 🙁
