….. and if it wasn’t enough chewing the cud on the contradictions of capitalism, what about this from ‘The Guardian’?:
“Even England football fans weighed in on the Brexit debate last night during clashes with riot police in Mareilles ahead of the country’s opening Euro 2016 game this evening. In what might be a pithy reflection of public opinion, fans sang: “Fuck off Europe, we’re all voting out.” …. “They also sang anti-IRA and anti-German songs before singing: “Sit down if you hate the French.”
They will certainly be sitting with bated breath throughout the rest of the continent as the great British democracy decides. A decision that might see the “mother of the free” rejecting the Brussels dictatorship with a certain “billionaire inventor” Sir James Dyson, who apparently got rich through the invention of a dual cyclone bagless vacuum cleaner, backing the leave campaign.
Of course, you couldn’t make this shit up and as a little land on the corner of Europe celebrates the Queen’s 90th birthday – and there he was, “the already senile 30 years ago, but he was never quite right in the head, anyway” 95 year old Duke of Edinburgh dressed like the complete clown, sitting beside Liz and the minions are given one more reminder of just what it is that makes them British and why they should be proud before they decide a great nation’s fate.
