A MAN is convinced that Britain should stay in Europe because he imagines it gives him continental flair.
Quantity surveyor Wayne Hayes, who believes himself a cut above the Little Englander types, argues that Brexit would make him look parochial and unworldly.
He continued: “When you look at me, you see a man who could be drinking Bellinis in Harry’s Bar in Venice for breakfast before flitting to Barcelona for tapas on Las Ramblas.
“How’s that going to work if we leave the EU? I don’t want to be thought of as a man who’s always queuing for visas.
“I support Inter Milan, I watch the films of Francois Truffaut, and I read Herman Hesse in the original German, or certainly I’d like people to believe I do.
He added: “I believe there are other reasons, tariffs and such, but they are really beneath the attention of a dashing, George Clooney-esque Europhile like moi.
“No, staying in Europe is the suave, sophisticated thing to do and that’s the sort of person I am.”
