My adopted county of Berkshire (or should that be my county of exile?) seems to be positively teeming with connections to Barack Obama. First we had the night Obama sensibly excused himself from a stag night do in Wokingham when a stripper arrived. That was for the wedding of his half-sister who lived in Reading.
No another Berkshire town of my intensive acquaintance, Bracknell, is at the centre of attention. Obama's half-brother has been "revealed" as staying there currently to visit his mother Kezia (a good biblical name). He is Bernard Obama. I do hope that the fact that he is a Muslim is not used somehow in the forthcoming US election campaign.
