Olympics: Forget TeamGB - it's the EU wot won it

I was waiting this to happen just at it did four years ago as I reported HERE. The EU has claimed that it sits at the top of the Olympic medals table with Team GB, currently second behind the US, submerged into team Evil Empire.

The EU table shows that the Evil Empire has won 223 medals at this year's Games – including 78 golds – compared to the United States' 84 and China's 51. Team GB - on 50 medals and 19 golds - disappears.
Remember that it is your taxes that funds such a pointless exercise. Do you think that in the streets of Athens they are cheering every time Team Germany gets a gold? Or that the folks in Dublin really give a flying wotsit that some chaps from Portugal have won bronze medals in the underwater synchronised volleyball?

Across Europe hard working folks pay taxes so that empty headed and overpaid wasters sitting in an office in Brussels or on a jolly in Rio can come up with this nonsense. Is it any wonder that those hard workers hate the institution in every greater numbers as each day goes by?
