I don't know if this is true or not, but like it

In an Underground station in London
There were protesters on the concourse handing out pamphlets on the evils of Britain. I politely declined to take one. 
An elderly woman behind me was getting off the escalator and a young (20-ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined. 
The young protester put her hand on the woman's shoulder as a gesture ...of friendship and in a very soft voice said, 'Madam, don't you care about the children of Iraq ?' 
The elderly woman looked up at her and said, 'My dear, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea and my grandson in Afghanistan. All three died so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country. 
If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your arse and open it.
......................... God Bless Great Britain (What we have left of it!)
