Funny Things My Kids Say - The EU Edition

The EU vote is everywhere today; you really would have to be living on another planet to have missed it. With less than an hour to go at the polling stations, I thought I would share some of the funny things Zachary and Charlotte have said about the EU.

Whilst we were having dinner, we were talking about going to vote.

Husband said, "No matter what way it goes, that Cameron will have the final say on what happens. He just announced it today!"

Charlotte said, "Who? Are you talking about next door?"

"No, David Cameron," replied Husband.

"Who the heck is that?"

Zachary replied, "he's the prime minister of the UK however Barack Obama should be the leader of the world. I mean he technically tells us what to do anyway!"

Husband said, "yes but he's only the President of America!"

Zachary replied, "Of the whole of America? So north and south?"

"No just the United States. South America is a completely different country!"

"I think you mean continent. It's a continent! It's a bit like Africa. A lot of people think Africa is a country. Like in class, the teacher asked us to name a hot country and the Primary 4s said "Africa!" and I said, "Africa is not a country, it's a continent. Maybe Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo or Tanzania would be a good choice!" I just couldn't believe it!" replied Zachary.

"So if we leave the EU, will we not be able to have the Euros in France any more?"
