We Don't Like The Brits

Most amusing this. In the case of the Birts it really is true that absence makes the heart grow fonder:

A poll of Europeans showed people of different nationalities liked each other more after getting to know each other, except in the case of the British -- who became less popular.

A project organized by the Notre Europe think tank brought together 362 citizens from 27 EU states for two days of deliberations in Brussels last weekend.

They were asked their views on a range of issues before and after the event, including how much they liked or disliked German, French, Polish, Italian, British and Spanish people.

The Spaniards were most popular with 78.6 percent approval at the end of the weekend. The Poles the least with 67 percent.

But all nationalities gained in popularity, bar the British who went from a 70.3 percent approval rating at the start of the weekend to 68.1 percent by the end.

It would seem then that given our uniqness in character, given our differences with all of the others in this glory that is the EU, we should leave then, eh?

That, of couse, would be just fine by me: the Norway solution perhaps. Fre trade and bugger to everything else.
