If ever there were a greater exhibition of folie de grandeur than shown by unelected EU official JC Juncker today I've yet to find it. This petulant little nobody says he 'feels betrayed' that Greece has failed to agree austerity measures by today and is set to default on loan repayments tomorrow.
Dear Herr Juncker, you are a nobody. When the history of Europe is written you will be lucky to appear even as a footnote in 6pt print alongside other forgotten trash such as the Vuvuzela. No-one knows who you are, few recognise the silly titles and pompous styles you have adopted. You are a minor here today gone tomorrow unelected official. Greece on the other hand is a sovereign nation with five thousand years of history, art, culture, war, civilisation and literature behind it. Against Greece you are as nothing, so small and insignificant so as not even to register on a macroscopic scale. You are, to paraphrase Napoleon, a turd in a Milanese silk lounge suit.
You are an unelected official of a corrupt non-federation to whom no democratic citizen of any sovereign state in Europe owes even polite recognition, let alone fealty or allegiance. You are a minor clerk, a grey pen pusher, a nonentity, a servant and the only people who may betray you are your sub-clerks and minions, dags of your nothingness. Certainly the 500m citizens of Europe are not obliged even in good manners even to recognise you.
You are clearly, in the vernacular, so far up your own arse that you can lick your own gall bladder and are in clear need of some perspective on how utterly insignificant you are.
