THEY CAN'T COME TO THE PHONE RIGHT NOW

Italian man, 101, told he needed his parents to confirm identity after Brexit app glitch

(Thanks to Jeff Meyerson, who says "His honorary Florida driver's license is on the way," and Le Petomane, who says "I'm guessing the same app company used in the Iowa election also supplied the Brexit software.")

He worked at a fish and chips restaurant in London until he was 94.
He looks pretty good for 101.

That’s the sort of glitch the we saw a lot of in the run up to y2k.

Am I the only one who can generate my parents' signatures even after all these years?

"Well, if your parents aren't available, how about your grandparents?"

I guarantee that if he just dug 'em up and took 'em down to the Home Office to vouch for him, he'd get his ID card immediately.
