    Does he mean that staying in the EU is a crushing colonial regime ruled from a distant Imperial capital that oppresses the poor minorities of the marginal nations?

    Because, you know, that is what I like to think British rule is all about.

  2. Given the Bottler’s “kiss of Death” track record his gob-rattling is good news for Brexit.

    “Every lying sack of shit in the world etc.”

    It does no good to lose your soul to avoid “nuclear war/global meltdown –both literal and metaphorical/ disease and/or bureaucratic Armegddon” but to avoid a socialist mental cases idea of what “British” means?

    “Gort to hand it to you Cohagen–dis is de best mind-fuck yed”.

  3. Ahh! With a bit of luck Bottler Brown has put his usual catastrophic oar in. We will be guaranteed to be out on the 24th of June.

    When I think of Britishness I think of fish and chips, cricket on the village green, and breathtakingly corrupt ramshackle bureaucracies run by German communists and Belgian pederasts.

  5. Being at war with Germany is about as British as it gets. If the French aren’t available, obviously.

  6. We always were English, and we’ll always be English, and it’s just because we are English that we’re sticking up for our rights to be Burgundians!

  7. The great Broon wakes up!

    This is good news for us – any cause he supports usually crashes and burns before long.

  8. Chris – “We always were English?” Who’s “we”? I had previously thought that it was the UK that was a member of the EU, and not just England.

    The Inimitable Steve – “When I think of Britishness I think of fish and chips, cricket on the village green, and breathtakingly corrupt ramshackle bureaucracies run by German communists and Belgian pederasts.”

    In fairness the only genuinely British breathtakingly corrupt ramshackle bureaucracies run by German communists and Belgian pederasts are large parts of British academia (if you include the odd Polish communist as well) and Britain’s various Communist parties.

    Aren’t they doing well?
