Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

(Pro-Brexit Conservative) MP Heather Wheeler sparks Twitter backlash with British Empire post

"The post angered many Twitter uses and was shared by hundreds of people.
Tory Mrs Wheeler though told the Mail this morning it was 'nothing more than a tongue in cheek pop' at the European Parliament.
The European Parliament Twitter account had earlier uploaded a graphic celebrating European Union medals highlight the 325 won by EU countries, compared to the USA's 121 and China's 70. Mrs Wheeler said: "It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet it was purely that."

Since the UK (or "Great Britain" as known during the Olympics for some reason) won 67 medals (27 golds) it would seem that the rest of the EU countries put together did better than the UK (e.g. France + Germany + Italy = 112 medals (35 golds)).
