GOD BLESS OLD BRITS- I’m with this lady !
It happened in an Underground station in London . There were protesters on the concourse handing out pamphlets on the evils of Britain. I politely declined to take one. An elderly lady behind me was getting off the escalator and a young female protester offered her a pamphlet, which the lady politely declined. The young protester put her hand on the woman’s shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, “Madam, don’t you care about the children of Iraq ?”
The elderly lady looked up at her and said, “My dear, my father died in France during World War 2, I lost my husband in Korea and my grandson in Afghanistan . All three died so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country. So if you touch me again, I’ll stick this umbrella right up your arse and open it.”
