Eddie Izzard on the EU

The above is from one of Eddie Izzards DVD’s “Dressed to Kill” in it he describes the European Union as “the cutting edge of politics in the most extraordinary way” and he is so right. He accurately states that Britan needs to be in the driving seat, but also highlights a few issues with the complexity of the EU, especially when it comes to languages. This was recorded when we only had 15 member states, we now have 27! Even more languages to contend with!

PS: Eddie Izzard is one of my favourite comedians ever. And here is one of my favourite sketches from that DVD. Languages

  1. The site looks really great Stephen. I’m also a huge Eddie Izzard fan. Must get over to eBay to buy some way over priced tickets for one of his Irish shows this year! I’m a fan, just not a queuing type fan!
