Une analogie trop loin?

French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, has used the following analogy regarding Britain’s attitude to The EU…

“Imagine Europe is a football club and you join, but once you’re in it you can’t say, ‘Let’s play rugby’.”

Clever, Monsieur Fabius, but here’s a more accurate analogy…

You can’t say, “Hey, let’s play a game of football”, then change the rules over a period of time until it becomes a game of rugby.

Taking the analogy further, you can’t expect us to still be happy when you invite us to a gang bang, get the hump when we don’t join in and say we’d prefer to stay in the kitchen with some of the other ‘less keen’ players – and then it turns out that the gang bang was a bit of a let down after all and you are struggling to keep your partners awake.
