The English word twat is a vulgarism which literally means the vulva or vagina, and is used figuratively as a derogatory epithet.[1][2][3] In British English the epithet denotes an obnoxious or stupid person of either sex,[1][3] whereas in American English it is rarer and usually applied to a woman.[1][2][4] In Britain the usual current pronunciation is /twæt/ (rhyming with hat); the older pronunciation, still usual in America, is /twɒt/ (rhyming with hot or squat), reflected in the former variant spelling twot.[5] The literal sense is first attested in 1656, the epithet in the 1930s.[5] The word's etymology is uncertain. The American Heritage Dictionary suggests a conjectural Old English word *thwāt, "a cut", cognate with Old Norse þveit (thveit).[4] Jonathon Green suggests a connection with twitchel, a dialect term for a narrow passage.[5]

Why do you think I live in Spain?

 

I mentioned this quite a few times: My wife is spanish. As she is more drawn to her home country and I am not really that bothered where I live as long as I speak the language and it is not in a large city we decided to move here.

Jacques Parizeau had absolutely nothing to do with French politics. Trying to use quotes from him as a representation of France's government makes just about much sense as using a US politician's quotes to represent the UK government.

It's just an easter egg for Canadians. But since you have my argumentative side engaged I will say that the cultural politics of defensiveness regarding "protecting the French language" dovetails with notions in France of protecting French culture, and its aspect is nationalistic, and nationalism is fertile ground for ethnic-exclusionism, as in "White and French." That's the sentiment that Parizeau was conveying on the night they lost after more than a few alcoholic beverages - God's truth syrum.
