Olympics Under a European Flag: Team GB Takes Beijing

by | 24th, August 2008

“EUROPE bids to hijack our medal.”

The Sunday Express brings news to shock and to cheer.

Finally, after so long we can win the rhythmic gymnastics, the shot putt and the Molesworthian  walking races. Says the Express:

The controversial plans have been drawn up by the Young European Federalists, a 35,000-strong organisation that has received hundreds of thousands of pounds in grants from the EC. The Brussels-based organisation argues that a single European team would lead the medals table and help people to feel more like European citizens.

It would. Anorak has already shown that it would.

“It says the move would also help to “combat nationalism that is always very fast in spreading on these sporting occasions.”

Poppycock!

Shadow Europe Minister Mark Francois said: “Britain’s amazing athletes have shown us how Britain can be one of the best in sport…Team GB means Great Britain. On 19 occasions the Union Flag has been flown at the top of the pole and they have been very proud moments for all the athletes.”

Indeed, Old Mr Anorak has suffered premature rigor mortis from repeatedly standing for the anthem of our great nation, enever dating to sit as another Wrne or Tommy stuck the falg in fopring sol and claimed it for Queen and Country.

Beijing is ours. To the ramparts…
