The fact you think that anyone could be impressed by that word, or would use that word to impress, says a lot.

Why did you vote to stay in the EU, by the way?

It's a pretty stupid to conflate intelligence and educational attainment. The two are undoubtedly linked but the reason why people with more qualifications tend to have voted to remain is simply because younger people are better-qualified than older people (over 50% of 18 yo now go to university), and their idealism was a large part of their reasoning for voting to stay in.

You make a good point that people are more likely to go to university than before.

Look up idealism in a dictionary in 20 years and you'll see a picture of a kipper waving a Union Flag.

Nah. A bunch of pro-EU halfwits waving the meaningless 12 star 'flag', whilst not having a proper reason between them for why they voted leave, and whilst backing the organisation that represents the capitalists they profess to hate.

I think John Cleese wrote an episode of Fawlty Towers called the Kipper and the Corpse which seems rather apt.

Has a tabloid used that as a headline yet? Criminal if they haven't

They're keeping it for when the economy is carried out in a laundry basket. At least The Major will be able to say what he wants again.

I know this is meant to be humourous but when has anyone ever said the EU prevents them from saying what they want?

I imagine MDP to be similar to Basil.

Your interest in me is touching, though sad. It's like I give you a reason to exist, like all the Lefties who buy the Daily mail to be offended and call it 'funny' names like 'Daily Fail', etc. Like you. 

You remind me of Manuel: hapless and dim.

He'll be along in a minute to hit you on the head with a spoon. Don't forget you know nothing.

In Derek's case, could you argue with that?

Cybil bullying you again?

Don't you spell it 'Sybil'? Nevermind, Manuel. You try hard, that's all that matters, not success.

Manuel was a likeable fool, Basil was a fool but was too arrogant and pompous to know it.

I don't think being called a fool by you really registers, much, to be honest, mate. 

Still, doubtless see you on other threads as you follow me around, giving you a sense of purpose.

Where did I ever say I did? I'm sure you get your knickers in a twist when people claim youve said or done things that you never have. Ironic.

Okay. Which way did you vote in the referendum?

Then why did he celebrate his birthday seemingly alone...?

He was no more liked nor disliked than Basil. The series never went into that depth.
