Given their policies and their absolute determination to ignore the lessons of history and plough every country they have power of into the dark ages you'd have thought they'd have a blinding sense of humour.
But no. Proof was given once again in Strasbourg when the woman who makes Harriet Harperson look like a decent member of society; our beloved new Minister for Europe, was giving a press conference.
I'll let another fruitloop, Mary Honeyball, set the scene:
Yesterday UKRep, the UK Permanent Representation to the European Union, held their traditional reception to welcome British MEPs to the European Parliament. It was, for me, a deeply depressing experience.
Shall we find out why it was a 'deeply depressing experience'? It's not, as you might imagine, because it was full of idiots who think Keynesian economics and ignoring the choice of the voters is a good idea.
It's much more serious than that...
Not only were most of the UKIP MEPs present; they were also accompanied by young women in fairly flimsy purple dresses...
Did you read that? Can you see how appalling that must be? Women went to an event looking good! They weren't sporting paunches and crew cuts or unattractive suits which made them look of questionable gender.
Glenys! bring the tar and I'll fetch the feathers!
It does, however, get worse. Lady G was talking about how wonderful it was that 35% of British MEPs were women and quite rightly pointed out that they needed to ensure they had something to do.
However, there were some bright spots. It was good to see British Commissioner Cathy Ashton there. The keynote address from Baroness Glenys Kinnock, Minister for Europe, was absolutely delightful. At last we have a Europe Minister who knows not only knows the subject but has years of experience as an MEP. Glenys, of course, talked about her passion, international development, and how she wished to continue contributing to Europe on the world stage.
Cue a voice from the back from that sexist beast Godfrey Bloom who said that, and I can hardly bring myself to type it, 'They can make the tea'. To add insult to injury those floozies in their dresses had the audacity to laugh. They actually laughed at a joke. Whilst wearing a dress and being a woman.
Of course, the socialists standing next to them quite rightly told them all that they should not be laughing at jokes because they weren't funny.
Godders himself thought that Mary Honeyball was playing an absolute blinder as far as humour was concerned. "Mary Honeyball's going to scratch your eyes out ladies for looking significantly more attractive than she..." he warned.
