French term or phrase: Les Anglais disent que les faits sont plus forts que les lords-maires.
I have just seen this sentence in a text I am reading. Does anyone know what it is (in English) that the English are supposed to say? I have never in my life heard an English with Lord Mayors in it of this sort!

English translation:Facts are stronger than the Lord Mayor
Explanation:
There is one google hit for this phrase in a text about the Catholic Church where it is used as a quote.
Otherwise, I haven't heard it either.
Hope this helps.
