Send them to Uganda, Rwanda, my veranda. It’s all economics really

It Jesus Christ and his mother Mary and father Joseph had arrived in a dinghy on the south coast the Home secretary would have sent them to Uganda. And if God were there

Would they have sent God to Uganda?

Well since God is everywhere he’s already in Uganda.

But 2000 years ago aeroplanes did not exist

Why,is it a long way to Uganda?

Where do you think it is is?

I thought it was one of the Shetland Islands.

In that case why are people from Uganda black?

Well it can get very hot in Scotland.

Is it doesn’t make sense because we are further South than Scotland and we are not all black

And Africa is further South than England and most of them are black.

This form of argument is clearly not very satisfactory. A lot of people in Britain believe that Uganda is an island off Scotland that might be why Suella Braverman gets away with her proposals. But I don’t think she really thinks Uganda is in Scotland.

I didn’t know she went around making proposals. I thought she was already married. Does she come from Uganda do you thinj?

What a racist remark. My newsagent came from Uganda because they were afraid of idi Amin

I’m sorry but I didn’t realise it was racist to mention Uganda

What about Uganda?

Strangely before the Germans killed the Jews they had wondered about sending them to Uganda. It’s understandable but Jews are not black. And Uganda was and probably still is very dangerous place to live for anybody.

Some Jews are yellows and they live in China.

What a remarkable coincidence. Can they speak Chinese

Yea they realised that’s Hebrew is not spoken by many Chinese people.Nor are Jews born speaking Chinese even when they’re living in China yet Chinese babies speak in Chinese. It’s all very puzzling

Well the Hebrew alphabet is easier to learn than the Chinese alphabet.

It’s one thing learning the alphabet but it is another to speak the language.

Just think most people in Britain didn’t know the alphabets until the last 200 years. They could communicate with each other really well. They could speak English perfectly

And when they learnt the alphabet they could read the Sun and the Mail.

What a great step forward for humankind. They couldn’t read the Moon though.

Don’t start talking about horoscopes.

Surely it’s the planets that count.

I can’t!

Very intelligent people can’t always count

Perhaps they were born before numbers were invented

I never knew numbers were invented

Well have you ever seen a number when you been out walking or when you been at home with your beloved.

Are you telling me that numbers are not real?

They are a product of our imagination starting off from the need to count your goat so sheep when the human race we came agrarian rather than Hunters gatherers.

But even Hunters would need to count the number of animals that they had caught unless it was only one or two

So the development of a number system which took hundreds of years then became something that anybody could use The symbol 0 zero is believed to have been invented by Indian mathematicians and I believe that when they traded it wasn’t only spices and silks and all sorts of goods but also ideas will travel. Maybe that’s why Marx believe that everything was economics.

In a very real sense everything is economics
