Literal rather than metaphorical
Although logic would dictate that Britain would do very well after leaving the financial sinkhole known as the European Union...and in fact doesn't even use the Euro...the European Union currency. There's nary a hope in hell that it will happen. It will be the usual (as in the past several decades) "too close to call" election....with the "stay in EU" side winning by a hair....then everyone will go back to their local pub for a good pint and plate of "bangers and mash" or "squishy peas"....don't you just love the Brit's culinary fare...NOT! : )
The reason I'm even bothering to post on the topic is because of the hilarious "must view" video linked above. It shows EU President, (former Prime Minister of tiny Luxembourg) Jean-Claude Juncker, well into his cups and "cutting a rug" as they say in the old sod. Apparently, Juncker was not favoured to become the president of the EU by British Prime Minister David Cameron...but the US wanted him in...so there you have it.
Juncker reminds me of one of the characters from Stanley Kubrick's final cinematic masterpiece, "Eyes Wide Shut". You can just picture him at one of those wierd get-togethers of the illuminati. I'm sure he was there...in that diabolical circle in the big room.....where everyone was wearing long dark cloaks, masks....and had their bare @$$es hanging out.
