LCD Views can wearily inform today that the European Union has set up a recorded message to respond to daily nuisance calls from a British woman.
The woman in question is believed to live in a taxpayer funded, local government property in central London. One of the last of its kind thanks to the ideology of sensible inner London social cleansing promoted by the caring Conservatives when they resumed their reign of terror over the land in 2010.
“She thinks she’s British prime minister,” a caller claiming to be Donald Tusk told us, speaking freely this morning, “which is frankly alarming. We know the woman in that symbolic position is just a front for an international clique of disaster capitalists. And her daily phone calls? I believe she needs help. This obsessive behaviour is not normal.”
But why does she call each and every day?
“Well first she claimed to be a disgruntled customer of the EU. Apparently she wasn’t aware when she purchased her membership of the continental wide club that she would be getting freedom of movement, reciprocal health care, strengthening data protection laws, gender and race equality initiatives, a focus on environmental protections and investment in the poorest areas of her country, neglected by central government.”
It sounds like she should have read the fine print.
“Yes. The part about her membership that she was particularly disgruntled by was the reciprocal nature of it all. She had to give the same things back to foreigners.”
A bitter pill to swallow.
“If you’re a xenophobic, small minded little Englander mentally marooned in a misremembered past, it certainly is.”
So she’s calling to demand a refund?
“Membership is only a few pence a day. Not even sofa change. We’ve told her she won’t be getting a refund, but she’s welcome to leave the club. It’s her choice. She has personal sovereignty, even if she doesn’t want other people to have it.”
So why does she keep calling?
“She didn’t read the fine print on the cancellation form.”
Oh no. Here we go again. What’s upset her with that?
“Measures taken to attempt to prevent a return to paramilitary violence on an island a few miles to the west of where she lives. It makes you wonder what goes on in her head and the heads of the people around her.”
It sure does. So what are you going to do about the nuisance calls?
“We’ve set up a recorded message to answer her now.”
In several languages?
“No. Only in English. Bugger all point of recording it in any other when no one else would be stupid enough to call this particular negotiating hotline.”
