In brief: it’s an either/ or scenario

Ben Bradley (a friend of the late John F Kennedy) on Radio 4’s Today programme yesterday morning:

Jack [referring to JFK on his election] was half Irish and half an educated and sophisticated man. And he wasn’t sure which one he wanted to be yet. He hadn’t decided which one he wanted to be.

Because, clearly, you can’t be both.

We love the casual racism.

    It’s nice to be accounted for!

  2. Yep… I think the ‘non belivers’ pleased a few people Pink. Are you religious tenderhooligan? (slightly off topic I know… but Pink started it)
