Do they understand?

But then do you!

Poor Ms Worrall. She is the fragrant 20 year old from Blackpool who has become famous for her tweet -

Why is our president Barraco Barner getting involved with Russia, scary.

In her defence it should be said that Obama became the 44th President of America in 2009 when Worrall was 15 years old. As for the comment 'our president', well the BBC has, all those years, treated Obama as if he is the Messiah so perhaps her mistake is understandable. Which leads us on to the flatulent Nick Clegg. He is older than Worrall but politically just as ignorant. And try as he did with his speech at the LibDem conference the possibility is the Worrall Tweet will be read by more people than attendees at his conference. This despite the BBC trying to present his words as important.

The Spectator reported on the Worrall story and it got over 170 comments from readers. By contrast the reports about Clegg scored 36, 234, and 6. Now you would have thought the politician would have fared better than that. And there was a less than favourable reaction to Clegg from the Guardian too.

It is said that Worrall was rather shocked by the world-wide reaction to her tweet. Clegg by contrast is a professional politician so has no concept of shame.
