    David Cameron was visiting a Scottish primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

    The teacher asked Mr. Cameron if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'Tragedy'. So our illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a 'Tragedy'.

    A little boy stood up and offered, "If ma best freen, wha’ lives on a ferm, is playin' in the field and a tractor rins ower him and kills him, that wid be a tragedy."

    "Incorrect", said David, in his best trying-not-to-sound-too-Scottish-accent, "That would be an accident."

    A little girl raised her hand, "If a school bus kerryin' fifty children drove ow’r a cliff, killing a'body inside, that wid be a tragedy"

    'I'm afraid not', explained David, "that's what we would refer to as a great loss’’.

    The room went silent. No other children volunteered. David searched the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

    Finally, at the back of the room, a wee lad raised his hand and, in a quiet voice, said: "If a plane kerryin' you and your deputy ' wiz struck by a 'freendly fire' missile & blawn tae smithereens, that wid be a tragedy."

    "Fantastic!" exclaimed David, "and can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"

    "Weel", says the lad, "it has tae be a tragedy, because it certainly widnae be a great loss, and it probably widnae be a f*cking accident either!"
