        No, seriously, I do.

        Well, must dash – got to work out where the hundreds of thousands of Roma are going to live when they start arriving in 2 months’ time. Spiffing!

        What ho!

    Of course all the people saying ‘who elected you’ and similiar are simply playing in to the hands of the Eurocrats who would love to see an ‘elected’ president, with the inbuilt eastern European majority…

      It should be possible to disconnect all the bits of Britain you like and tow them about 1000 miles further south to get better weather and less rain and leave the miserable, socialist, bits behind in their Slough of Despond.

    Farage is good, very good and he is definitely in tune with a huge number of UK citizens but theres no getting away with the fact that voting for him will let Red Ed in to Downing Street ably supported by two faced Clegg and all his Union bosses. Perish the thought.

    OK Herman do you have solutions to any of the following:-

    2000 killed in road accidents every year
    6000 commit suicide
    1000 murdered
    10,000 victims of serious crime
    100,000 children in care
    10% of population on anti-depressants
    2.5million people out of work
    Public debt 90% of GDP
    Private debt 180% of GDP

    Because if you haven’t can you please take your 3,600 laws, your Osram CFL lightbulbs, your windmills and your expensive EU quango and shove it where the sun don’t shine.

    I would love to have seen Mr Rompuy’s face when this lot started to appear on the screens. With all the largesse that the EU enjoys you would have thought that they’d have some savvy PR wonks who could have helped the old gentleman to avoid this cyber equivalent of a good beasting. Or is it a case that the EU doesn’t need to bother with good PR as they think they already own us, body and soul, and feel able to laugh at our backward little nation from their luxury gold plated apartments in Brussels?

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
