A MIDDLE-CLASS family who returned from Cornwall a fortnight ago are still all wearing wetsuits, friends have confirmed.
The Cooks have been seen gardening, driving, shopping, and visiting National Trust properties while uniformly clad in wetsuits and apparently have no plan to take them off.
Neighbour Helen Archer said: “I saw them over the fence and said hello and over wandered Bronwyn, wearing a wetsuit while raking leaves as if that was perfectly normal.
“Behind her the kids were playing with a frisbee, wearing wetsuits, and as we chatted Julian came home in his Audi A6, carrying his briefcase, wearing a wetsuit. I didn’t say anything. I didn’t want to look stupid. It wasn’t even raining.”
Julian Cook said: “Why are we still in wetsuits? Well first, because other people hire them but we’ve bought ours. I think it’s important everyone know that.
“Second, they let everyone know that we’ve actually had a bloody good beach holiday while being responsible enough to stay in Britain, and that we spent it doing expensive activities like surfing, coasteering and stand-up paddleboarding.
“Third, you can piss in it.”
