Playground politics

Ahh, quality snide remarks in "UK's EU logo flies into trouble":


The [Eurosceptic] Bruges Group, which has Baroness Thatcher among its members, says [Jack Straw] must adequately explain the similarity [of logos] by noon on Friday.
Otherwise, the group ... says it will consider applying for an injunction to stop the presidency logo being used.

Lord Lamont [of the Bruges Group] said: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Obviously, the government has realised that the Bruges Group has been right all along about the federal ambitions of the EU."

"Michael Johnson, of the design firm, said ... "I'm afraid that Mr Lamont's (logo) seems to be too old and too unmemorable for anyone to know of it,"



Great stuff.
