Barack Obama held a ‘town hall’ meeting in London and the audience was hand picked. But without any cries of racism, we wonder… is this audience really representative of the British people or is Obama making a political statement?
As the Daily Mail reported,
The President was introduced on Saturday not by the democratically elected Mayor of London, as one might have expected, but by 21-year-old Khadija Najefi, a political science graduate who has recently been working as a volunteer at the Jungle camp in Calais, from where thousands of migrants have been attempting to enter Britain illegally.
No box was left unticked. Other guests included a woman engaged in tackling ‘gender inequalities’, an Iraqi refugee, a disabled domestic violence campaigner and someone described as a ‘non-binary Muslim’, who refuses to define as either male or female.
We’re not saying that these are not all good and fine people, but being a hand-picked audience, were they really a genuine representation of the UK population as a whole or was this just another attempt by Obama to push his political agenda?
