UK wins Greece in poker against EU

A rather puzzled British prime minister left the Brussels summit, arm in arm with an equally confused Greek prime minister. After promising to leave the talks with an improved deal for the UK, a sheepish Prime Minister left, now the proud owner of a bankrupt Greek economy, seven cans of old paint and a four-pack of AA batteries “with two missing”.

Some cynics have suggested the EU has used the situation to unload a lot of unwanted ‘tat’ on an unsuspecting UK. But the prime minister looked exuberant as he waved a wire coat hanger and an old bath mat over his head. Clutching a rubbish bag full of expired medicine and blind electrical cables, the Prime Minister declared the talks a great success.

His spokesman agreed: “These treaty concessions and old greeting cards left by the Belgian finance minister are the spoils of victory. This Betamax tape is a tribute to the Prime Minister’s negotiating skills. Nobody make fun of these… what is it? Oh, yes – those beautiful used makeup sponges – that he won.

Addressing the onlookers, the Prime Minister assured them that he had made a good deal: “I hold in my hand four magic beans. I believe these are peas in our time.
