A rhyme too obvious to overlook…

Eurozone boss Jeroen Dijsselbloem (see here for a pronunciation guide) was caught off guard this week in a Dutch TV interview, lightheartedly referring to his predecessor Jean-Claude Juncker as “an inveterate smoker. And drinker too.”

To mark the occasion, ‘ere’s a limerick.

Of course.

A Dutchman said of Jean Claude Juncker,

As colleague, he’d never known drunker,

But despite all the wine,

His judgement was fine

Late at night in the eurozone bunker.
