He was “Danny” when I came across him as a Gramsco-Marxian “student” agitprop-droid. Many, many years ago now. He’s forgotten the incident, I’m sure.
But to insult Klaus in his own castle, smacks of bad manners. D C-B has clearly learnt nothing in the years in which he’d have been expected to slough off, as is normal, his Marxist mantle, and start to behave like a normal human being, specially in the company of others. I don’t think he’d be invited to many people’s houses up here where we live.
But perhaps the EU reall IS “the Problem”? We here often say it is “a” problem but not “the” main one, which is our unelected GestapoMarxiaNazi bureaucrats, who think (righty by default as we don’t stop them yet) can trample with impunity over us and our customs and beliefs. Perhaps our own home-grown wannabe-jailers behave like they do because of the EU and the fact that it exists and also consists of people like “Danny”? he encourages them to be brave, to push out the boat and see what they can get away with.
Perhaps we shall have to bring down the EU after all? I was hoping not, as it’s better, as Sean Gabb says, to be governed by a load of distant corrupt arse-ocrats from places like Italy and Greece (and Spain at a push, or even Germany) than the following fate: to be locally-tyrannised over by unimaginative British bureaucrats who probably don’t even speak proper Engllish and whom you can’t even bribe, as they’ll have the Police round to shoot you dead in about three minutes.
