The EU Have A New Hero

And he goes by the name of....Captain Euro!

Bring it on dickwad, bring it on. I'll go toe to toe with you any day.

Many thanks to Richard for the link.

Then again, Captain Euro may just fade away, if this piece over at Rosies Hoose is accurate.

I cannot think of a single thing I would want more for Christmas.

Fingers crossed!

Have no fear, I had a brief look at it. Its utter shite, and will be gone in a matter of days. My eleven year old, presumably the age range targetted, said it was rubbish. He would have said it was utter shite if I had not been standing next to him.

Captain Ranty said...


Do they think we will take that shite seriously?

Before your comment I would have said it was aimed at 11 year olds, but they can clearly see through the bollocks.

5 year olds? Will they be fooled?

Another waste of our money.

Any bairns who have parents who talk to them will see through this. Surely?

If Edward and his colleague are correct, that's my holiday gone. I was going to try to rustle up another 18 local people so as we could have a freebie to Brussels. The visit to the Parliament need only last an hour or so as a token gesture.

Before it all folds, I think we should all toddle across at taxpayers' expense.

That is the most hilarious thing I've seen in ages. As a means of propaganda it's so bad Goebbels must be turning in his grave.

WTF is this thing about him having a metal alloy kneecap? I mean, surely this rubbish needs to have some kind of coherent narrative, or am I expecting too much? ;-)

FFS don't get your Mrs one of Mala's Bags, with its plastic explosive disguised as lipstick and "soporific face powder"...

Dan Hannan wrote about Captain Euro a while back here. There's a few rather sinister aspects to it going by that column.

Bleedin' thing has been around since 1999 apparently.

I think it's metal alloy because you can recycle it....

Sinister is right. (Well, left, actually). They do not do anything without a hidden agenda.

How much did that crap cost us???

I think it's aimed at the X Factor Strictly Get Me Dressed By Gok Wan set.

They think Jeremy Kyle is the centre of their world. And he's right there, in living colour!

Of course they will be taken in. Their ability to think has been sucked right out of them.

That Brussels freebie story really got my goat. £25M utterly wasted. Mind you, I wouldn't go to that unholy place even if you paid me to.

I am praying mightily that Edward and John are right.

It gave me a boost, so it did.

It so bad it [almost] defies belief...

Nice to see it's in 'European' English as opposed to the proper stuff. I like to think they couldn't find a native who supports the Euro to check it for them.

Love the Goebbels comment!

It looks like a fucking KwikFit advert. I was looking around the page expecting to see a special offer on low profile Yokohamas.

Apologies but all I can muster is one word:

Having looked at it again (I've seen it before) I am reminded of all that propaganda art of the USSR. Shite.

Captain Euro? Captain Ranty can take him with one hand tied behind his back. :)
