Steven SwinfordFrance has said it is better than Britain because the NHS is "ailing" and its health service, roads, rail and tax system are all superior.
In a riposte to criticism from British commentators, the French Embassy in London has drawn up a list of 10 reasons why it is not a "failed socialist experiment" which is at risk of "turning into a tragedy".
In highly undiplomatic language, the embassy dismissed claims that its government oversees "absurd levels of inefficient public spending".
