One More Reason To Love Everything Ulster

One of my primary sources for information on the elections in Northern Ireland was Everything Ulster. UK Must Pay More To EU not only gives us a good view of the internal tensions in the European Union, but gives us one more reason to love Everything Ulster. To quote:
No, not Everything Ulster, the other EU, the European Union. The French, German and Polish leaders today called for an end to the UK's rebate, negotiated by Margaret Thatcher in 1984 because Britain was paying an unfairly high contribution to the then EEC. Now the cheese-eating surrender-monkeys, the towel-throwing deck-chair theves (emphasis added - ed.) and ... well, Poland want us to go back to paying over the odds.
Long live the Anglosphere!
