In a speech to the House of Commons, David Cameron called the events in the EU “a colossal economic disaster”, saying that “the whole root and core and bank balance of the British ex-pat Army” had been stranded at Dunkirk and seemed about to perish or be left penniless.
In his ‘We shall fight on the beaches’ speech on 26 March 2013, he hailed their eventual rescue as a “miracle of deliverance”.
The second Dunkirk evacuation, commonly known as the Non-miracle of Merkel, code-named Operation Eurodisaster by the British, will be the evacuation of British ex-pats from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk, France, as they are cut off by the German EU Troika squads trying to empty their pockets and pension funds.
One Dunkirk Mark II evacuee said: “F*ck it I’m swimming. I’m not even waiting for a boat.”
