A COUPLE stockpiling food and medicine for post-Brexit Britain are looking less like paranoid nutjobs and more like useful people to be friends with.
Martin Bishop initially dismissed his next door neighbours as ‘total crackpots’ when they started filling their garden shed with tins of chickpeas, but now views them as people of immense wisdom and foresight.
Bishop said: “Roy and Mary Hobbs are the type of people who cover up the camera on their laptop so the government can’t spy on them, so when they started stockpiling for Brexit I thought it was just an extension of their oddness.
“Having ignored them solidly for the whole time I’ve lived here I’m going to try and ingratiate myself with them before March 29th.
“I’m sure they’re community minded folk who will want to look after me.”
Mary Hobbs said: “We voted for Brexit and we can’t wait until it’s time to get our guns out. That arrogant remainer twat next door will be the first up against the wall.”
