European Councilors Sail The Channel On Home Made Raft

You could not make this up - what a group of mucking fuppets.....

Quote "The two Germans and one Frenchman braved choppy seas to make the nine-hour journey from Boulogne to Folkestone on Wednesday. The raft, made from six oil drums and a sheet of wood, contained out-of-date flares, a radio that did not work and carried no life-saving equipment. "

Pity they didnt bloody sink

It was just as well for them they entered the UK that way rather tha France, where they take maritime safety law much more seriously. In France they would have been treated much more severely and would have certainly been fined as a minimum, and in fact may well be when they get back
 
It could be worse wait til this crowd get here!

Perhaps we should encourage our MEPs to travel to and fro this way... it would save on all those first class air fares for them and their families to and from the UK... infact why stop there?
