OK, perhaps it’s all down to Europeans being to fat, but in all honesty I really don’t think so. There must be more to it than that !.

Leicester going into Lockdown.
I read over here 300 people that were in a Suisse nightclub have got it.
Good Luck with the Pubs opening up and the seasoned pîss heads getting back on it.

"Just had conversation with a British couple who have a holiday home near us. They voted for Brexit and have made no arrangements whatsoever for what happens on Jan 1. They have now discovered the reality of their situation.

The blame apparently is with "Brussels".

Quick follow up to this:

They have always assumed I am British and only recently discovered I have dual nationality. When I told them and revealed all my EU rights were protected I was told that was, "very unfair" and "typical of the EU"

Further follow up.

Their son (lives in UK, uses house for holidays) called me at lunchtime.

"Is this true what those bastards in Brussels are doing to my parents?, we'll see about that. They have no right right to treat us that way"

My wife has just spoken with the lady of the couple in question.

She is in tears as she has just today realised the full extent of what is going to happen. They had planned on retiring here in about five years when her husband retired but no longer. They will now have to sell

The son has been back on, it seems he will be, "Taking this to the top" I have no idea what that means.

He's not going to be "pushed around" by 'Brussels' and he's spoken to his friends at work who all agree with him. Seems this is the EU bullying his parents and being vindictive toward British people because they are jealous of Brexit. My only reply was, "Well ok then"

Received a largely incoherent message from the idiot son via WhatsApp.

Says that my wife and I are 'part of the problem', wants to know what we are doing to help, should have warned his parents, Farage was right, (not sure what about), something about the War, the Empire etc.

Latest Development:

The wife called my wife again. More tears, seems the idiot son has been shouting at his work about this and has been sent home to cool off. Meanwhile they have made the decision to sell the house and have asked if could help with viewings. We have said yes.

O Christ

Another call, this time from the son. He's decided to come over next week and "sort this all out with the Mayor" I tried to explain that it's nothing to do with our Mayor and that this is down to the UK leaving the EU. He said he didn't vote for Brexit to have this

I said he needs to take the time to understand what Brexit means but he will not listen. I told him he will need to wear a mask when here. Surprise, surprise he, "Doesn't believe in them" I doubt he can get a Channel crossing so he probably will not make it.

Long email from the original couple.

They are very angry. Feel they have been lied to (not sure if they mean me or the UK government) and want "compensation" (again not sure who from). Want me to write a letter confirming they knew nothing about the effects of Brexit.

The icing on the cake has been delivered.

WhatsApp message from the idiot son. He is saying he has a Eurostar crossing for Thursday and will be here late Thursday night after taking the TGV from Paris

He asked if I can collect him from the railway station.

OK although I was tempted to collect him she who must be obeyed has put her Gallic foot down and made me say no.

I have also dropped a text to our Mayor who immediately phoned me roaring with laughter. He has promised a crack team of Gendarmes will be on standby just in case.

That's it for the day. My wife has prepared canard à l'orange and she will be angry if it gets cold.

Good evening.

Brief update as so many asked

The duck was excellent, my wife is a brilliant cook.

I had creme brulee for pudding

The story is true and that is how it happened today

Our dog is now asleep

I promise to update the story as it develops
Idiot son has been drinking.

Just called me via WhatsApp. I am his best friend

SIGH"

Amen. And I bet that this is happening all over France, Spain, Italy, Cyprus and every other nook and cranny of Europe

I don’t understand, why do they have to sell?

Does that mean all those on the Chatteau thing have to sell up and move back to Blighty.

The guy over the road didn’t say anything about having to sell, he’s only back here to visit his mother...

Duh. I assumed this was actually happening to you.

Shouldn't it be in the Brexit thread?

The whole thing is a Ponzi scheme.

Or possibly a dream sequence....

In a minute you will wake up and David Cameron will be on the morning news announcing a decisive referendum result of 83% for Remain.
I've had weirder dreams than life over the last few years, but not many.
