by duncanr

UK: We want a rebate on the fees
EU: OK

UK: We don’t want to be in the Euro
EU: OK

UK: We don’t want to be in Shengen
EU: OK

UK: We want a restriction on benefits
until people have worked here for . . .
some time
EU: OK

UK: We want to stop child benefit being
paid for children who aren’t in the UK
EU: OK

UK: We want to kick out people who
come here but don’t work and can’t afford
to support themselves.
EU: That’s fine, you already can

UK: We want loads of preferential
treatment that other countries don’t get
EU: Errr, can’t really give that without
everyone agreeing

UK: Don’t give us what we want and we’ll
leave
EU: That’s a bit of an over reaction, but
vour choice

UK: OK we’re leaving
EU: Bye then

UK: Now we’re leaving, we want all the
things we had before
EU: Errr, no, it doesn’t work like that

UK: Don’t give us what we want and we’ll
leave with nothing,
EU: (Scratches head) OK, umm, well,
yeah

UK: We’re serious, we’ll walk away with
nothing to teach you a lesson
EU: Bye (again)
