It's been fun.

for England maybe, not for Europe.

a few years of sad marriage, no orgasm, not even preliminaries

Dave's banker mates are more important than us, so it is only right they are also more important than you.

a few years of sad marriage

I first read that as "mad sausage".

it was mad sausage for the first few months

Perfides Albion!

Funko

No-one really seems to have a clue what's going on.

Fistandantilus
09-12-2011, 14:06:25
Not even Cameron?

Funko
09-12-2011, 14:19:39
He's never had a clue.

Dyl Ulenspiegel

Seems he has sidelined the UK to pacify the old tory farts. Quite pointless, but also quite irrelevant.

Funko
09-12-2011, 16:08:31
I think he genuinely didn't think they'd tell him to fuck off. The twat.

Dyl Ulenspiegel
09-12-2011, 17:03:01
Probably.

Funny how after what, 38 years, they still don't get the informal EU diplomacy rules. You go along with things you may not really like, you help out even if it's not 100% your business, and in return you can expect a favour when something matters to you.

Being the upper class twit does not earn you any points. Tough lesson for the old boy, I think.

Funko
09-12-2011, 17:05:35
Nothing new from us really.

When are you gonna come down
When are you going to land
I should have stayed on the farm
I should have listened to my old man
You know you can't hold me forever
I didn't sign up with you
I'm not a present for your friends to open
This boy's too young to be singing the blues

Goodbye, and please close the door quietly!

The Euros aren't exactly distinguishing themselves. Not that that makes Cameron right.

C.G.B. Spender
09-12-2011, 18:31:10
Say who?

zmama
09-12-2011, 18:31:36
Who are you who who who who?

C.G.B. Spender

My name is Ivor

Pleased to meet you Igor!

All my Euros are extinguished.

Invest in beer!

Lurker
09-12-2011, 20:57:44
Beer currency is best currency.

Dyl Ulenspiegel
09-12-2011, 21:02:27
I'd start a beer bank. Instantly.

Lurker
09-12-2011, 21:39:41
I'd be happy to be a teller.

Nah Lurker spills!

I don't understand why we don't buy Greece and use it as a holiday cottage.

Too much of a fixer-upper

Dyl Ulenspiegel
11-12-2011, 16:58:34
And it's all mortgaged up already.

MOBIUS

And full of surly Greeks.

So on the one hand the Tories are trying to split with the Germans, but on the other hand they seem to be trying to curry favour.

Cool :lol:

Btw aren't LibDem part of the coalition in power? I thought they were proeurope?

Funko
12-12-2011, 10:06:58
Indeed. They are finally coming out against this. This quote from a French diplomat is my favourite explanation on why it took them 2 days to come out and say what they thought:

"If your wife's been out all night you're livid in the morning but first you have to check whether she has had an accident. Once you discover she's been sleeping with your friend you're entitled to let her have a piece of your mind."

"Did Cameron inconvenience the UK's relationship with its European allies all for the sake of needing to visit the conveniences?"

The more that comes out about this 'negotiation' the worse Cameron seems to have done.

Dyl Ulenspiegel
13-12-2011, 11:13:08
The pee strategy fits well with the upper class twit of the year sketch.

Funko
13-12-2011, 11:18:48
He is utterly useless.

Funko
13-12-2011, 11:21:12
I'm not saying the proposed deal is perfect, it doesn't sound that great.

But it does sound like there was the possibility to negotiate a better deal, if we could have helped the Germans drive it. If we hadn't gone in like retards and shat all over everyone.

What I fail to understand is what is the purpose of wielding a veto in a position of weakness (as it seems to be if 26 out of 27 members will sign the pact) unless your goal is to really sewer ties with Europe.

Then again maybe the UK is better alone.

I am just curious as to whether Fist meant "sever" or "sewer" there. The latter being somewhat appropriate. :D

Exactly. One blogger in The Economist said "that's not called wielding a veto, it's called losing". (He was quoted by the opposition leader yesterday, although not credited)

There is some speculation that this all comes hot on the heals of the largest backbencher rebellion in history where 81 Tories rebelled on a three line whip on a European vote and that part of the problem is that he might think he can't get a treaty change through parliament.

Mmmmm ... curry.
