EU puts itself TOP of the Olympics table – and REMOVES Great Britain completely
THE EU has sparked outrage after trying to take credit for Britain's incredible haul of Olympic medals.
It has placed itself at the top of an online Rio 2016 medal table after combining the 28 members of the bloc into a federal superstate.
Team GB, which is ranked second in the actual table with 50 medals including 19 golds, does not appear on the EU's table at all.
The table, created for the EU, proudly boasts how the EU has won a staggering 223 medals at this year's Games – including 78 golds – compared to the United States' 84 and China's 51.

Seriously though, I know you've mentioned your dislike for the British Empire, but just because land is acquired in a different way, does it mean that the 'right' way to become a superstate is different?
Or that war is war whether it be economic or military?
The irony of this thread is immense since Team GB referrs to England, Scotland & Wales only and makes no mention of Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and the 14 UK Overseas Territories such as Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands all of whom send atheletes.
I wish all the competitors well and am proud of their achievements but I would prefer a more inclusive name for the team.

Team United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland with Jersey, the Channel Islands and UK overseas Territories.

Catchy. Has a nice ring to it :)

Brexit needs to hurry up.!
Do you honestly think it's going to happen? Truthfully?
Yes, otherwise I will get the pitchfork out and declare war.!.
That's not genuinely what happens. It'll be put off, there will be studies into it, there will be realisations that the promises can't be delivered on (free movement will be a condition of any half-decent deal), there will be reality checks about the financial impact and eventually it will just be forgotten about.
Maybe you'll get a new party to vote for (a right-wing amalgam of UKIP, Britain First, disgruntled Tories and maybe even some socialism thrown in for good measure) that will give voice to the ignored underclasses but that'll be about it.
Greater social divisions at the lower rungs of the ladder but business as usual at the top. It's a rubbish compromise in all honesty but division is the future of this country seemingly.
You see it's the sheer ignorance and over confidence of people like you and the Londoners why the Northerners overwhelmingly voted leave, Nobody listens to anyone outside London, we might as well not exist.
Keep telling yourself that it won't happen, I'm sure us Northerners will easily forget such an event.
I know plenty of people from the North who voted remain, and I know people from the South who voted to leave so you can't quite put it in those terms. I think it's more of an ideological divide.
Here's the thing though - you say nobody listens to people outside London (not true but we'll use that description). Firstly, why is that and secondly why do you think it would change now?
The 'disenfranchised, ignored voices' will suddenly be the leaders of our economic destruction? Financial institutions who contribute £60 billion+ per year to the country's coffers are going to be ushered overseas because car manufacturers in Sunderland want to vote against their own best interests? That's what you think will happen?
Sorry if this sounds harsh, arrogant or anything else but it's a reality check. You want good schools, good healthcare and decent infrastructure in this country then you need businesses and businesses will drive the political agenda. Sorry about that.

I'm still scratching my head trying to recall which previously banned member you are... any clues?

But... that's not the same. The official name of the team that includes these "regions" is Great Britain, and they compete willingly under that name.

I didn't say it was the same mate, of course the EU doing this is nonsensical and they should know better. But I wonder how many of the 21 Northern Irish athletes representing Team Ireland at Rio 2016 would have joined the 8 representing Team GB if the felt that the organisation actually wanted to include them?

The reason why Northern Ireland isn't part of Team GB is that it is not part of Great Britain. It is in the United Kingdom and British Isles, but only England, Scotland and Wales are Great Britain.

No, it was made by a third-party that has no relationship (so far as I can tell) with the European Union or any associated body.

This seems akin to thinking a twitter handle called 'ChelseaFanFTW' speaks for Roman Abramovich or Antonio Conte.

You'd have to be thoroughly inexperienced with marketing bs to think that this company has any real relationship whatsoever with those bodies. I'm not sure what your experience of the EC is but anytime you work with any body or organisation linked with it then they'll use English 90% of the time (the other 10% is usually French).

Again, they're a third-party private organisation who have no official links to any of the bodies they say they do, so to infer that they're creating this medal table for any official body is spurious at best.

One of my first jobs was working for an events and publications company that worked across many different fields, but one of mine was oil and gas. That meant cold-calling companies in that field to get them to buy advertising space and their reward was to be associated with individuals associated with the European Commission or foreign governments.

It was bs. The website talked up all these links that simply weren't true, or were half-truths.

A quick google shows they're still in business, still talking up the opportunities to do business at an 'executive-level' with 'Fortune 500 companies'...and it's still utter tripe.

It's amazing that you're willing to be open to the idea of a government publishing propaganda but apparently unwilling to believe that private companies might do the same. That's......odd.
