Magazine in doctor’s waiting room speaks of simpler time

A MAGAZINE in a doctor’s waiting room has taken its reader back to happier times before Brexit, vape juice and compulsory recycling. 

The magazine, believed to date from the years when Katie and Peter were still very much in love, contained no references to Theresa May, Netflix or Twitter backlashes.

Patient Norman Steele said: “At first I was annoyed that all the magazines were pre-Obama and looked like they’d been salvaged from a container ship accident, but I started reading one and my blood pressure sorted itself right out.

“It was full of harmless nonsense like footballers cheating on their wives, Patsy Palmer returning to EastEnders and Keith Chegwin showing a photographer around his house. It was absolute bliss.

“I hadn’t realised quite how badly we’d let everything go to shit until I was cast back just a few years to what now seems like an enchanted utopia.”

He added: “I managed to grab a March 2007 OK! and a Radio Times with Life On Mars on the cover. For when the shit really hits the fan.”
