Technically, the British hate themselves. But it's the flailing-around kind of hate that lands on all foreigners over time.

Bill Bailey got a lot of mileage out of Belgian accents and French, that's for sure.

It said that China had covered the €21m bill to buy and refurbish the nine-floor, state-of-the-art embassy building known as "Dar Malta" in 2007

There really seems to be a wide swath of Europe that desperately wants to believe that history ended in 1991, enabling everyone to be blissful and trusting and naive for the rest of time. China absolutely loves farks like you. Go on, sell them some more ports, you need more cash for your Russian pipelines.
