Bespectacled, aged, bald, hearing-aids wearing, short, plump, reporter Inchcock Chambers, has discovered that time-travel is happening!
He has interviewed a traveller from the future, one Zip Alonso, who he claims came from the year 2218.
Inchcock: Why did you travel back Zip?
Zip: Life was finishing on earth, and it was either £819bn for a ticket to the moon, or £102m for a one way trip back at the 'Travel-back Arcade'!
Inchcock: When and where did you 'land' here, if that's the terminology?
Zip: Same place, it always is, in this time it was on the embankment near Trent Bridge in the Meadows area of Nottingham. Of course in my day, the Bridge had been long gone, no fresh water left you see, where I appeared if you like, on the steps of the river, was actually the same space as the Travel-back Arcade's departure lounge.
Inchcock: What was your first thought on getting here Zip?
Zip: That the history tapes were all wrong, you actually have food available in 2010. Our tapes tell us only the rich were eating in this era, while the deficient, impecunious, impoverished, disabled, and inadequate ones had already starved to death, been fed to the few remaining cattle, or been used in experimentations"
Inchcock: Oh, er.. What are your plans now then?
Zip: To get myself 'in' with the predecessors' of the families that will run the world, to make sure I can afford a ticket to the moon when it comes this time... do you happen to know any of the Scottish Brown or Cameron family members, the Bin-Laden's, or Bush's families do you?
