Man tweets about his mum voting leave, both camps unite to take the p*ss
A man has united the vote leave and remain voters on polling day, with one bat-shit insane lie about his 93-year-old blind mum voting for Brexit.
There have been a lot of lies leading up to this referendum, but Keith Adams managed to tweet a lie so bizarre he managed to unite Brexiters and remainers, helping the country to heal from this divide.
Earlier today, after voting, he claimed his blind mum did this:
Just took 93yr Mum to vote, she's registered blind. In a very loud voice she said, "Which box for out?" A cheer went up from waiting voters— Keith Adams (@keitheadams) June 23, 2016
Immediately, he was accused of lying.
@keitheadams think that breaks voting rules Keith, it just never end happened did it— Gareth Eccles (@ticsmon) June 23, 2016
But Keith stuck to his guns, and said this:
@ticsmon it did happen, she's registered blind with limited sight.— Keith Adams (@keitheadams) June 23, 2016
...As if his mum being partially blind was the bit that anyone thought he was lying about.
A fact he kept repeating to whoever accused him of lying
@Joshalar truly happened, she has macular degeneration, some limited sight— Keith Adams (@keitheadams) June 23, 2016
Soon after that, just about the whole of twitter took the piss out of Keith, no matter what their political views. It was beautiful...

The waiting crowd cheered "Bo Selecta"
and proof that no matter how the vote goes...

Britain will heal again...
Took my 93yr mum to vote, she's registered blind. In a very loud voice she said "The lannisters send their regards" then stabbed me.— Andy (@ItsProbablyAndy) June 23, 2016
United by our need to take the piss, when the piss needs to be taken...
Took my blind 93 year old mother to vote. She said "existence is a bleak meaningless hell. I crave death". Everybody in the queue cheered.— Nihilists4Brexit (@NihilistBrexit) June 23, 2016
And point it out when people's mums are clearly made up time travellers who aged 3 years in just 18 months...
Keith’s mum is a time-travelling moaner. pic.twitter.com/rbl9E7VwKg— SimonNRicketts (@SimonNRicketts) June 23, 2016
And maybe that was his plan along. Maybe that's why he's still claiming it's true...
@fazza95 genuinely did happen, small village hall this morning— Keith Adams (@keitheadams) June 23, 2016
And writing bat-shit insane blogs insisting that it's true...
Later, I'm going to set up a blog which I've never done and set out the facts of my Mum voting. it's impossible to do so in 140 characters— Keith Adams (@keitheadams) June 23, 2016
Because maybe he's not the hero we want. Maybe he's the hero Britain needs right now...
The hero who can unite the whole f*cking country, even more than Blair ever could
Keith, we salute you. And your mum, if it turns out she exists.
