Story behind photo: EDL march in Birmingham upstaged by really nice tea party


We asked Europeans what they really think of the UK
This is rather silly, but sweet.

(I feel like curling up into a ball and hiding. This is an attempt at looking at something positive.)

Saffiyah seems pretty awesome - she was interviewed on Woman's Hour</> this morning and on our local BBC news this evening. She seems totally together and genuinely seems to feel it was no big deal. I love her smile, just a touch patronising because she knows EDL are morons.

I found PC Palmer's funeral procession deeply moving - as a copper's daughter it was good to see his sacrifice recognised.

So, do you agree with the iPlayer Europeans? What do you find weird (still) about this country? (BTW, we've replaced our separate taps with single mixer taps. Dave and I can eventually take a hint!)

Yes, few people I know think EDL have many brain cells between them. Not even bright enough to be Brownshirts. Lovely little article in the Grauniad today about her meeting the woman she went to support.

I wish our sodding government recognised and respected EU people can assimilate. Though the Brexiteers will always be weird to me, as to you. :-(
