Following on from Brexit Party MEPs reaching ‘peak bell end’ on their last day in the European Parliament, European Commission President, Ursula von der Layen, has ordered that the EU’s stock of Union Jacks should be sold to Iran at a bargain-basement sale price, with up to 70% off. Originally, these were to be storied in a safe place or field latrine ‘just in case’.
In Iran, demonstrators against practically everything celebrated the EU’s action. A spokesman for the Revolutionary Flag Burning Society said: ‘Due to the illegal sanctions of the Great Satan Trump, Union Jacks have only been available on the black market. Now I can teach my children how to burn flags in keeping with our ancient traditions, and help them achieve their aspirational values.’
