"I think this is what's known in Britain as V-E day (Victory in Europe). I think it's a good example of that wonderful British semi-detachment: we agree it was victory in Europe, but decline to commit on whether *we* are part of Europe. It would be a bit, you know, emotional, to actually celebrate - just because we had to sort out a load of bickering continentals *again* shouldn't be understood to imply that we actually *care*."
