The end of English.
A front page story in the local paper saying that French will overtake English as the worlds most widely spoken language by 2050. The accompanying article is short on facts.
The papers readers also learn that the Swedish King and Queen are coming on a State visit to Paris. A multi-coloured map shows where Sweden is in relation to France. Next to it a photograph of the Swedish King looking decidedly glum. The Queen and the two Princesses are standing beside him smiling bravely in what appear to be costumes designed by Disney World. '' Bet they won't wear them in Paris " comments 'The Font'.
The fancy baker has been making use of his colourings. Angus buys four cakes and takes them home. Bob and Sophie are given slivers of shortbread. The 'religieuse violette' a talking point.
