Freddie Mercury sums up the EU

Donald Tusk says:

As a motto for tomorrow, the words of Freddie Mercury, who passed away exactly 27 years ago: “Friends will be friends, right till the end”.

Here are some more appropriate words from Freddie Mercury:

You suck my blood like a leech.
You break the law and you preach.
Screw my brain ’til it hurts.
You’ve taken all my money, and you want more.


Misguided old mule
With your pigheaded rules,
With your narrow-minded cronies
Who are fools of the first division.


Death on two legs,
You’re tearing me apart.
Death on two legs,
You never had a heart
Of your own.


Kill joy, bad guy,
Big talking, small fry,
You’re just an old barrow boy.
Have you found a new toy
To replace me?
Can you face me?

But now you can kiss my ass goodbye.

  1. “Won’t you come into my parlour said the spider to the fly…”

    ends thus:

    “And now dear little children, who may this story read,
    To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne’er give heed:
    Unto an evil counsellor, close heart and ear and eye,
    And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly.”

    The Spider and the Fly
    by Mary Howitt

  2. Bravo, sir! Can there be any better summation of the ridiculous European Union than “Big talking small fry“?

    (Y’know, when I was growing up, during – more or less – the height of their powers, I always thought Queen were a bit crap. But they grow on you.)
