Damp rag

Stiltskin Van Rumpel, appointed King of Europe precisely because nobody in Europe has ever heard of him and never will, appears to be bothering those who appointed him by trying to actually behave like the King of Europe. Meanwhile, the British member of the European Parliament who told Van Rumpel he has “all the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk” has been fined 2,700 pounds by that parliament. This is presumably because an unelected individual who is paid 353,950.00 Euros of taxpayer money per year is entitled not to be called names. Or is it because the correct version is “the charisma of a low-grade bank clerk and the appearance of a damp rag”.
