On-topic, this study by the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics in Oxford is extremely interesting, mapping the genetic signatures of Britons by region...

So it proved: a statistical model lumped participants into 17 groups based only on their DNA, and these groupings matched geography. People across central and southern England fell into the largest group, but many groupings were more isolated, such as the split between Devonians and Cornish in Britain’s southwest.
People who trace their ancestry to the Orkney Islands, off the northeast coast of Scotland, fell into three distinct categories. They are likely so differentiated because the islands made it hard for different populations to mingle.

Clearly there are genetic differences between us based on region and geography.
Is it enough to make a song and dance over? I'm not so sure, but an interesting read nonetheless.

I updated your joke:

A Eurocrat, a Eurocrat and a Eurocrat walked into a bar in Brussels, each ordering a litre of beer.

When the beers arrived they all had a fly in them.

The first Eurocrat rejected his beer because the fly had been weighed in ounces.

The second Eurocrat rejected his beer because the fly wasn't the regulation length.

The third Eurocrat barely looked at his fly but just waved it onto the UK.

Loses a bit of fun doesn't it? But if we don't vote Out in June...
