Lessons from history are never learned. Especially In Politics
CHINA

A man went and built himself a wall
He built it high and built it tall
He built it wide he built it strong
Built it very very long
He knew what it was all about
He’d keep the marauding buggers out

He didn’t

ENGLAND / HADRIAN

A man went to build himself a wall
He built it high and built it tall
He built it wide, he built it thin
He’d stop the buggers getting in
The Romans they just left for Rome
The marauding Scots then called it home

And knocked it down

BERLIN

A man went to build himself a wall
He built it strong, he built it tall
He built it all around Berlin
To try and keep the buggers in
He shot them down outside the gate
Death was to be their awful fate

They knocked it down

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A man has gone to build a wall
He’ll build it high and build it tall
When all is said and all is done
They will pay for every stone
Of this He's sure, he has no doubt
His wall will keep the buggers out

It won’t ?
