Isn’t it always the way? Mob rule took over on twitter against Boris Johnson because tweeters didn’t know their British history. What happened in Kenya is a huge blot on British colonial dealings, one of the very worst episodes involving the British Empire. Details are hear.At one stage over 90,000 Kenyans were slaughtered by the British army. Anyone with any Kenyan blood would be bound to be deeply distraught and traumatised by what happened.
Thousands were tortured and ill treated by the British.
In the light of Kenyan history, it is clear what Boris meant, when he referred to the Kenyan blood of President Obama. So often his comments are greated by a storm of abuse from those who totally misunderstand him. In this case, as always he is making a valid point.
