I like Chig! ... I really do!

I'd be interested to know what he finds so appealing about slurping on Jean-Claude Juncker's cock?

Juncker is the elected head of the EU. He was voted in by the EU Parliment, which is composed of MEP's put forward by the individual EU constituent countries. That's perfectly democratic. Nobody is sucking anyone's cock and no one is getting bummed either.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electio ... Parliament

And Juncker is from Luxembourg, he's not German.

The UK should have tried to engage with the EU and improved it for the better. I'm sure that Ireland, Scotland and Wales would have agreed with most of any proposed changes, as might other countries. You sent Farage.

Was Farage trying to do anything constructive? No, he was going to the Parliment and telling everyone there what fools they were every chance he got. And he sent that message back to blighty for dim lads to read in tabloids.

Instead of trying to make Europe, the world, a better place, you have thrown your toys out of the pram and sulked off. The EU was created with the best of ideals in mind - the spirit of cooperation etc., and to never let needless divisions cause strife and wars like in the past.

We really need that now more than ever with a nasty, narrow-minded spirit seems to be sweeping around globally and manifesting itself politically on the far right with Wilders, Hocke, Le Pen, Farage, Trump etc.

I think Germany as a country is very invested in the EU, but ethically as well as financially. Part of it is its the logical path but it's also a kind of atonement for the countries past. The war changed the national character and most Germans - even the young still being born - feel war guilt. They are for more integration, not less.

I think now may be the moment where Britain (England) realises it's not an empire anymore... Just another island off Europe. The reality will set in.

You reap what you sow!

The EU decided to ignore the wishes of the majority of its citizens and plowed on with its plan for a Federal Europe regardless!

I, and apparently millions of others were totally pissed off with being steamrollered into something they didn't want, and chose the only option left open to them!

Thank fuck for the ballot box! It's the only weapon the little man has left to inflict damage on corrupt and arrogant politicians who won't listen to what the electorate want!

If you're happy to be lorded over by a set of elitists who couldn't give a flying fuck about you and yours, and will shit on you in a heartbeat if their own self-interests are threatened, then be my guest!

Just count me OUT!


Peace, Des.

MPs voted by a massive majority to trigger Brexit on Wednesday night! A few knobheads committed political suicide by voting against, but basically it's all over bar the shouting!
