Newspapers in Great Britain are, increasingly, suggesting President Cough Cough is anti-British.
Apparently, one of his uncles, or great uncles or some such was tortured by the British in the Mau Mau uprising somewhere in the dim and distant past.
This uprising took place from the early 50’s to about 1960 in Kenya….which, for the geographically challenged is somewhere in Africa.
I have no idea, nor any interest, in whether President Cough Cough’s uncle / great uncle / second great cousin twice removed was or wasn’t tortured during said Mau Mau uprising – personally I reckon anybody calling themselves Mau Mau probably deserved what they got….Mau Mau???
Still…sometimes repetitive names work. Piri Piri sauce springs immediately to mind.
With the greatest respect Mr President Cough Cough. Whilst the Brits fully realise that BP…aka BRITISH Petroleum… have made a major cock up and are, indeed, responsible for polluting the ocean and many miles of America’s coastline, we would appreciate you acknowledging that, whilst we, the Brits, may well have tortured your uncle / second cousin twice removed and polluted your bit of ocean, we have also supported the good old USA unwaveringly and sent ‘our boys’ in with yours on many many occasions.
All too frequently ‘our boys’ have come home in body bags due to American ‘friendly fire’.
By all means slag off BP to your hearts content – I’m right up there with you there – but chill mate.
Your rhetoric is becoming increasingly anti-British. Bad move.
The vast majority of the British people love America but, if your rhetoric continues to slag off Britain – as opposed to specifically BP – we might just withdraw our troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Now. If we do that, who the hell can your chaps kill with friendly fire?
BP are a bunch of arseholes by any standards.
Do me a favour Cough Cough. Don’t go areshole on us as well eh?
We, the British people, aren’t to blame.
Any more, for want of a better word, crap from you and we might just start getting pissed off.
I realise you are feeling helpless and are getting battered from all sides for your apparent inability to solve the problem. It is very unfair but, stop slagging GB old bean.
You might find that this little old country across the water starts to say “Well…F*ck you then!”
BP screwed up. We didn’t.
Get a better script writer mate. Sorted.
Oh yeah…and by the way…Paul ‘Sir’ McCartney doesn’t speak for the Brits….
It might be worth remembering that sort of thing.
We aren’t impressed with you right now.
All this “My uncle (or whatever) was tortured by the Brits” is going down like a lead balloon.
Firstly, we don’t give a crap and secondly, most of us weren’t even born or older than 5 then anyway.
A little island we might be…but don’t for one iota think we won’t tell you where to get off mate.
Somebody advise your guy a bit better will you?
