Lesley seemed to hit it off with Tony as the pair discussed single life. But, as the conversations went on, cracks began to show and it didn’t take long for things to turn awkward.
Tony began by explaining that he’d lived in Spain for seven years and that he loved the weather.
Lesley began: “The thing is now you’ve got all the ex-pats going on about the EU and coming out of Europe”, but Tony interrupted her, saying: “England was a much better country before the common market.”
“Yeah but what’s been and gone, you’re not going to change,” argued Lesley.
Tony went on: “Most of my life I was a right-wing Tory – I’m not sure about Farage, I was a founding member of UKIP.”
Lesley, clearly surprised, said: “He’s mental.” Tony clearly disagreed, replying: “No, he’s not. He’s a very clever guy.”
