The European Elite played a game of poker with the people living in Europe. If it were a game of Texas Hold ‘Em (which would never be played in Brussels), they were holding pocket 3s. Not bad, but not a hand you would bet your whole pot on. They felt that as elites they could bluff their way through and the common folk would roll over.
Well, after seeing the French and the Dutch people call the elites bluff, the game may be over and the EU may have to be folded.
