Why is it always the French that are Eurocrats!?!
A term used largely by British "newspapers" the Daily Mail
(AKA the Daily Heil
and the Daily Hate
) and the Sun
, as well as ignorant right-wingers such as the BNP
, to describe people who work for the European Union's administration. The implication is that the laws and decisions made by the EU are only a hindrance to EU citizens, a stereotype perpetuated by fabricated scare stories circulated in the above-mentioned "newspapers".
EU announcement: "We will be taking measures to ensure a high level of quality in the fruit of vegetables sold throughout the EU."
Daily Mail headline: "Eurocrats ban curved bananas!"
Average Daily Mail reader, broadcasting to everyone s/he meets: "Oi has you heard the fuckin' EU has gone an' banned curved bananas? I'm gonna vote BNP to get this country fixed!"
Rational person: "That sounds a lot like a typical sensationalist scare story... I hope you've researched this dubious claim yourself, and not just believed what some bullshit media source has told you?"
