Takes credit for UK's achievement, overlooks as a supernation their starting lineups would have been significantly reduced

Not exactly what caught my eyes.

It was a brexit twist in there too, I guess.

It just shows how superior to Americans and Chinese that EUians are.

And even with the EU's enormous drag coefficient it shows how superior that GB are to the rest of the EU.

Basically GB > *

Last time I checked, the Olympics does not admit bloc's but nations & nations are limited in the number of athletes they can enter for an event. ASSUMING The EU was a nation ... take Men's Skeet... Italy took gold and Sweden took Silver ... NOP only one would have been allowed to enter & thus one medal NOT two to the "bloc".

Dodgy number's from the EU... what to expect when they got Junker king of dodgy corporate tax avoidance at the helm and dodgy Bank Stress tests showing the banks are all OK :lol:

The E.U. is no different than the old Soviet Union, which would have every subjugated territory represented as a separate country in the UN.

Come to think of it, the E.U. is like the old USSR in many respects, for example the lack of free speech.

No. Both are, or were, authoritarian nanny-states, where individual freedoms are sacrificed to the collective.
