Dany Cohn-Bendit: “Mr. Earl – why can’t you understand that the time of the Earls are over – they are not the solution of the democracy – can’t you understand this? That we are in a time – when we are in a time that, in thirty years, none of the European nation states – neither Great Britain, neither Germany, will be part of the G8.
Earl – why can’t you understand that the time of the Earls are over – they are not the solution of the democracy. … This is a time over – you can write poems about it and be sad about it – I understand that an Earl is sad about it, but it’s the cruel reality of the modern world.
Can’t you, Mr. Earl understand the modern world?”
No, he can’t, Dany – he is a member of the British Establishment and a UKIP MEP. That combination and the modern world just don’t go together. But their days are over – the only question is just how much damage they can do before they fade away.With my thanks to my friend Troels of Denmark!
