The Latest EU Directive

The English Penny
EU Directive No. 456179

In order to meet the conditions for joining the Single European currency, all citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland must be made aware that the phrase 'Spending a Penny' is not to be used after 31st December 2009 .

From this date, the correct terminology will be: 'Euronating'

Thank you for your attention.


  1. It would be funny, Sue, if it were not quite likely to come to pass!

  2. *Applauds*

    Made me giggle (even if, as Oldrightie suggests, it may come to pass)

  3. Wouldn't be at all surprised. No doubt 'a penny for your thoughts' will be Eurified to 'I don't give a flying fuck for your opinion. The issue has already been decided for you by an unelected bunch of thieves, frauds and liars.'

    Economy of expression is not a strong point of the Eurocracy.

  4. I toured parts of Eastern Europe in the dying days of communism, the further east you went the worse the bogs became, past Bucharest the tiles as per your graphic would be considered an idle luxury.
