Joe Biden Is Neil Kinnock Is Robert Kennedy

BARACK Obama’s running mate Joe Biden has modelled himself on which British politican from the last twenty years:

a) Maggie Thatcher
b) Tony BLair
c) David Owen
d) Neil Kinnock

SAYS Neil Kinnock , former Labour leader and light bulb head:

Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get into university? Why is Glenys the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get into university? Was it because all our predecessors were thick? Did they lack talent? Those people who could sing and play and recite and write poetry? The people who could make wonderful, beautiful things with their hands? Those people who could dream dreams, see visions? Why didn’t they get it? Was it because they were weak? Those people who could work eight hours underground and then come up and play football? Weak? Does anybody really think that they didn’t get what we had because they didn’t have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment? Of course not. It was because there was no platform upon which they could stand.
