And this week's Alanis Morissette Award For Irony goes to... this video!

For in it, a man - believed to be a member of the right-wing group Bolton North West Infidels - attempts to burn the EU flag. (Watch the video to understand why he's not happy with the EU. Something to do with it "forced mass immigration" which is "genocide on the British people".)

The only hitch? Due to what are no doubt EU safety regulations, the flag isn't flammable.

According to Joe.co.uk, the clip was posted to the Infidels Facebook page, "but was soon taken down owing to the amount of pointing and laughing that followed".

Well, thank goodness it didn't make it out any further onto the internet, eh?
