Back in the day when Alex Ferguson managed Man U, the club scouts identify a brilliant young Nigerian player and sign him up.

The first training session gets underway. The young African lad is standing with the rest of the team and Ferguson places a ball on the ground. "This is "ball", understand? Over there is "goal"" he says, pointing to the goal. He then swings his leg in a kicking motion and "Kick...yes?" "KIIIICK". "Kick....ball...goooooal!"

At this point the Nigerian lad plucks up courage and protests..."Please Mr Ferguson, my English is very good, there is no need to speak to me like that, it is quite patronis....".

"Pipe down lad, I'm talking to Rooney....."
I am a 63 Yr old white male, all my life there has been two constants:
1. Africa needs money
2. Israelis and Palestinians hate each other
Apparently nowadays I'm responsible for both.​
