“The emperor is wearing no clothes!” my child cried.
It was too late to muzzle her, and besides, she was right. “Listen to the innocent child!” I shouted.
The crowd fell silent long enough to hear her say it again. “He hasn’t got anything on!”
Soon we were all standing with the child and shouting, “It doesn’t matter what he thinks he is wearing. He hasn’t got anything on!”
