He said it was 'very sad'.
Well, he would say that wouldn't he.
But not because he, or anyone else for that matter, is going to miss us, but because he is going to miss our money.
And he's going to miss it big-time, since Britain is one of the biggest contributors.
In fact, Britain is in the top 4 highest contributing states, we pay more in than all of the scuzzy Eastern European countries, put together.
That's why they like it.
Hard to research for sure, as for obvious reasons, they don't really like you to know.
However, I did find a figure on a well-known, reputable website of 14 billion odd pounds contributions from Britain, for last year.
Anyway, we're not going to split hairs with all the losers out there who believe, simply because they repeat everything they have been told and do not have their own brain to think with, that the E.E.C. is wonderful.
The point is, it is a massive amount of money to lose from any budget and will represent something like a 12% budget deficit for them.
Think about it; we get services losing 1 or 2% of their budget in this country and they're on their knees struggling, so the E.E.C is going to be absolutely decimated.
All of which is good, of course.
I would say it will bankrupt the E.E.C. but of course as we all know, they already are.
That's both morally and financially, obviously.
What's more, Commandant Junk knows it.
Well Chairman Mao... oh, sorry, wrong article... got confused.
Ahem...Well Chairman Junk, we don't think it's sad.
We think you are though!
We think it's fantastic.
In fact, we think it's so good, such good news and such a momentous decision to finally break free from being chained down by you, that we think it is probably the best thing to happen to Britain, since the end of the Second World War.
And if the arrogant French say the British have to leave France, will that included the dead; you know, the ones that fought to save you, Mr. Junk?
