APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

It's appropriate to remind Americans of the US Elections today

The teacher said, "Good Morning, Class, let's begin by reviewing some History. Who said: 'Give me Liberty, or give me Death'?"

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Akio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan, who had his hand up: "Patrick Henry, 1775,"  he said. "Very good!" said the teacher,

"Who said:  'Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth'?"

Again, no response except from Little Akio: "Abraham Lincoln, 1863."

"Excellent!" said the teacher continuing. "Let's try one a bit more difficult.
Who said, 'Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?"

Once again, Akio's was the only hand in the air and he said: "John F. Kennedy, 1961."

The teacher snapped at the class, "Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Little Akio isn't from this country and he knows more about our history than you do."

She heard a loud whisper: "Fuck the Japs."

"Who said that? I want to know right now !" ...she angrily  demanded.

Little Akio put his hand up, "General MacArthur, 1945."

At that point, a student in the back said, "I'm gonna puke."

The teacher glared at the class and asked, "All right! Now who said that?"

Again, Little Akio says, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991."

Now furious, another student yelled, "Oh yeah? Suck this!"

Little Akio jumped out of his chair waving his hand and shouted to the teacher,
"Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!"

Now with almost mob hysteria reigning in the class, someone said, "You little shit! If you say anything else, I'll kill you!"

Little Akio frantically yelled at the top of his voice, "Michael Jackson to the children testifying against him, 2004."

The teacher fainted.

As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, "Oh Crap, we are finished."

Little Akio said quietly, "Americans, if Hillary gets elected.
