Why "tread carefully"?
I just liked the idea that the EU politician was being named 'Barmier', or 'more barmy'.
From the Collins dictionary:
Barmy:
Word forms: comparative barmier , superlative barmiest
adjective
If you say that someone or something is barmy, you mean that they are slightly crazy or very foolish.
