This week, Cornelius returns to give his take on the floods that have blighted the UK and that repository for right wing hatred – the EU.
For those who missed it, this week saw the quiet announcement by some busybody grammar schooled bureaucrat that, statistically at least, Britain has benefited economically from its involvement with the EU. Tish and fibsy! Whatever those blithering Whitehall spreadsheets might say, any chap with his head on straight can tell that the E Ewe has done nothing but ruin this country. We put up with all their accented interference in our legal system (no never ending life sentences for filthy criminals? Thanks Brussels.) but what do we get in return? Bugger all! If it’s a common market, why do I still have to slog down to bloody Calais to get my case vin rouge for cinq euro? Sure, we put up with all the lumpy Polish builders streaming in, but when are all the fruity Scandinavian blondes going to waltz through immigration control? It’s all take and no give with Europeans. Can’t trust ‘em. Done nothing but ruin all our fun with ‘human rights’. And the flooding? You can bet that if the French hadn’t been pouring away all that farm subsidy wine, there wouldn’t be any of this rising sea level nonsense, and the South would have been spared. That’s a scientific fact.
