Freddie Mercury sums up the EU — 3 Comments

  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.)
