The world holds its breath!
The royal family is seriously considering making a dramatic intervention in the referendum debate with an announcement that it supports Britain remaining inside the European Union.
Outside ‘experts’ have advised the royals that the intervention would need to be presented by a figure with impeccable European credentials, a strong affinity with the continent and the character to speak out, the family has decided that the move should be fronted by Prince Philip (this is not meant to be a joke!).
One insider said that Big Phil has been hugely impressed by the way the EU stepped in, not just once but several times, to save – yes SAVE – Greece, “He admires what Tsipras and Varoufakis achieved – in fact he told friends he sees something of his younger self in the charismatic, motorbike-riding, eye-for-the-ladies Varoufakis. Mind you,” added the source, “he also thinks the Greeks would never have got into this mess if the colonels had still been in power.” That’s more like the celebrated dictator-loving scrounger that we know.
It’s yet another reason for voting to get out of this haven for the fat cats and to work for a socialist Europe.
