Alastair Darling: Listen carefully, Juan Manuel Barroso. Gordon Brown conquers and controls everything he rests his eyes upon. He leads an army of civl servants so massive it shakes the ground with its march, so vast it drinks the rivers dry. All the God-King Gordon Brown requires is this: a simple offering of loans and bonds. A token of the EU’s submission to the financial genius of Gordon Brown.
Juan Manuel Barroso: Submission. Well, that’s a bit of a problem. See, rumor has it that the Americans have already laughed you out of town. And if those Philistines and… burger-lovers have found that kind of nerve—
Nick Clegg: We must be diplomatic -.
Juan Manuel Barroso: (cutting him off) And of course Eurocrats… have their reputation to consider.
Alastair Darling: Choose your next words carefully, Juan Manuel Barroso. They may be your last as head of the EU.
[Juan Manuel Barroso turns and ponders the offer, looking at various people around him, the last of whom is Angela Merkel.]
Juan Manuel Barroso: Loans and bonds…? [draws his pen and points it toward the Alastair Darling, whose back is to a financial black hole. The Eurocrat guards draw their pens and point them to the other messengers.]
Alastair Darling: Madman… You’re a madman!
Juan Manuel Barroso: Loans and bonds… You’ll find plenty of both down there. [indicates the black hole with his pen]
Alastair Darling: No man, Portuguese or Greek, no man threatens a Chancellor!
Juan Manuel Barroso: You bring the denial of EU demands to my city’s steps! You insult my Eurocracy. You threaten my people with non-payment of emergency funds! Oh, I’ve chosen my words carefully, Darling. Perhaps you should have done the same.
Alastair Darling: This is blasphemy! This is madness! [Juan Manuel Barroso lowers his pen and looks toward Angela Merkel, who nods.]
Juan Manuel Barroso: [facing Alastair Darling] Madness? THIS IS THE EU!! [kicks Alastair Darling into the black hole]
