image for PIIGS?? Eurozone states face GIPSI evictions
Non-kosher image of the EU flag

Brussels - EU runt states of Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain have demanded an immediate makeover of their tarnished porcine image.

Threatened with default sanctions by their First Brussels Gravy Train Bank masters the PIIGS group said today the blame lies entirely with 'pikey' unelected politicians running the EU feeding trough.

They cite latest figures showing European Commission officials' salaries, pensions, expenses and emoluments cost more than the entire combined Eurozone sovereign debt.

A media report last week said the worst 'offenders' need to be graded according to a new system of acronyms in line with 'localist' agendas - like the UK's Dale Farm** traveller evictions - that 'the proles' can easily understand.

This suggested the GIPSI moniker should replace PIIGS - and that EU High Commissioner Barrenness Ashton undergoes corrective facial plastic surgery to remodel a sneering porky snout.

Her annual tax free salary, expenses, commissions and other kickbacks have earned her the nickname of 'Napoleon' - the chief swineish protagonist in George Orwell's prophetic 1945 satire on the EU called Animal Farm.

** An update on the Essex site eviction is expected later.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
