What is Guido trying to prove?

Guido has got two stats up showing the Olympic medal tallies for both the EU and the British Empire.

Is he trying to say that becoming a more central part of the EU would be just as good as what we had under the British Empire (after all both kick China and America's collective arse's)? Or is he trying to say that the one Gold medal lead for the British Empire renders the EU impotent?

I know he says it's just for fun, but if that's the case what amusement can be derived? Sure I love stats, but really... fun??

Olympic medals neither prove the worthiness of a country (after all China is winning!) nor are they an obvious source of amusement. Confuzzling.
