The Truth about Goats

‘Grandad, do you remember a time before Brexit?

Sidney Whiteside (109) is the last surviving voter, who was alive when Theresa May first started negotiating the UK’s exit from the EU.  Sidney is old enough to remember the Wright Brothers first flight, when Boris Johnson was simply figure of fun and what the Common Market actually was.

Some historians have suggested that 2016-18 has only been twenty-four months, but for the UK population in has been a lifetime.  In reality, two years of Brexit are the equivalent of 100 years in dog years, or half of Cher’s real age.

Said Sidney: ‘When Brexit began, a loaf of bread was 99p – which seems ridiculous, as post-Brexit, we won’t even have bread.  Of course back then you didn’t call folks immigrants, we called them nurses, teachers and the like.  But obviously times change and we’re now much more enlightened in the way we label people.’

Sidney recalls when Mrs May was on her first of thirty-eight Brexit secretaries: ‘We couldn’t predict the future.  Robotics, the Internet, nano-technology – we had all of those things and now we’ve just got these two bits of wood to rub together.  If you’d told me back in 2016 that one day we would have a man of Mars, I would have laughed at you – as Mars clearly has an immigration problem’.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
