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 and UKIP, 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?"

A tourist-orientated town in the South of England, with a population of 50,000.
The young people of Salisbury can be divided into three main groups: pikeys, squaddies and the posh kids.
Salisbury's pikeys are the most visible group, usually seen roaming the town in packs. They are indigenous to the Friary and Bemerton Heath, but are known to go to McDonalds and Burger King in order to feed. Other popular points of congregation include Tesco Metro, Poundland and the Library Steps.

The squaddies are usually only visible on Saturday nights, trying to pick up 18-year-old posh girls in Whiterooms and fighting each other and pikeys. The rest of the week they are busy invading Third World nations, shooting people and feeling good about themselves for it.

The posh kids spend most of their time either at one of the town's two grammar schools or at one of the copious private schools. At these institutions they learn how to vote for the Conservative Party as well as the art of banter. In their spare time they drink tea in Starbucks or Nero, or smoke undersized spliffs in the Cathedral Close. At the age of 18 or 19, almost all posh kids emigrate to "classier" (read: preppier) locales such as Oxford, Cambridge and Exeter. The Guild Hall Steps are a meeting point for posh kids with identity crises and lack of direction in life.

The British National Party is a far-right political party in the UK, founded in 1982 as a splinter group of the National Front. Historically an openly racist party, nowadays there is an odd situation whereby BNP members claim not to be racist and try to avoid making overtly-racist statements, while still trying to appeal to the racist sentiments of working class Britons.
Until February 2010 non-whites could not be members of the BNP; the rules were changed due to anti-discrimination laws. The key motivation for the BNP is to protect what they perceive as "indigenous British culture", which they believe is being "eroded" by immigrants and their descendants. BNP are not a one-issue party, with right-wing views on a range of issues other than immigration and multiculturalism: they also oppose gay rights, freedom of religion, socialism and European integration; on top of this they want to "get tougher" on crime and criminals and believe that climate change is a myth. During their campaign for the 2010 general election, the BNP focused specifically on their idea that Muslims pose a threat to Britain.
Many non-academics brand the BNP a Nazi or neo-Nazi party, but this is not accurate. Political scientists generally consider the party to be fascist, although leader Nick Griffin has rejected this label.
"The BNP will repeal the Race Relations Act and all other far leftist social engineering projects, such as the Equalities and Human Rights Commission"
