Re: Animal storieS

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

Theresa May's tactics left EU leaders 'shocked'- and Donald Tusk deeply unconvinced Don't believe Tusk. He can't even read the documents he's waving. “We have to be careful, like two loving hedgehogs,” said Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president. “When two hedgehogs hug each other, ...

You should get a Russian tractor: puncture-proof tiers, remotely controlled guns firing anti-tank and -aircraft missiles, programmes for invading your neighbours' plots and hacking the US election if you connect it to the Internet.
