Twitter Is Taking The Piss Out Of This Guy's Totally Fake Voting Story
Listen, we get it, politics is a big deal. A lot of people get pretty riled up, and to be honest why wouldn't they? There are a lot of big issues to tackle at the moment, and Britain seems, by and large, split right down the middle.
Some stand shoulder to shoulder with immigrants, those affected by the migrant crisis, the European Union, the economically displaced and less fortunate, the LGBT+ community, the international community, and common decency as a whole, and some would prefer to be as far away as possible from everything that isn't in their back garden.
So today, on this day of days, where we're voting not just on a single issue, but choosing a path that will affect ourselves, our children, and our children's children, it's only natural that people are fighting tooth and nail for the result they want.
Some post memes, some take pictures of polling station dogs, and some make up totally fake stories about their aged relatives...
