Good joke from the Newsnight digest

Anyone who is interested in news and current affairs should subscribe to the Newsnight newsletter, it always has a good joke, including today’s:

In advance of the Hutton Report, a colleague sent this:

George W Bush goes to a primary school to talk about the war. After his
talk he invites questions. One little boy puts up his hand, and the
President asks him his name.
“Billy!”
“And what is your question, Billy?”
“I have three questions,” says the boy. “First – why did the USA invade
Iraq without the support of the UN?; Second – why are you President when
Al Gore got more votes?; and Third – whatever happened to Osama bin
Laden?”

Just then the bell rings for recess. George W Bush informs the children
that they will continue after recess. When they resume, the President
says: “Okay where were we? Oh that’s right, question time. Who has a
question?”
A different little boy puts his hand, George points him out and asks his
name.
“Steve!”
“And what is your question, Steve?”
“I have five questions: First – why did the USA invade Iraq without the
support of the UN?; Second – why are you President when Al Gore got more
votes?; Third – whatever happened to Osama bin Laden?; Fourth – why did
the recess bell go 20 minutes early?; and Fifth – what happened to
Billy?”
