King tells president to shut up

“Why don’t you shut up!?” said the Spanish King to Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez in a summit held in Chile on Sunday. King Juan Carlos had clearly had enough of motormouth Chavez, who had launched a verbal assault on Spanish President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

The video was also quickly posted on YouTube, so it’s there for your viewing pleasure. It’s in Spanish, of course, but the King’s face says it all as he leans forward to silence Chavez.

The Spanish are known for being a little more direct and fiery than us Brits, but could you ever imagine the Queen telling George Bush to shut up? Now that would amuse one.
