Guy's First Date Gets Seriously Awkward After Asking One Question

Guy's First Date Gets Seriously Awkward After Asking One Question

It's divided a nation for over a year, so you can imagine it also split opinion on a first date also.

Twenty-three-year-old Lettie, a political activist, was set up on a date with Cambridge graduate Fred, 26, on Channel 4's First Dates.

It was an obvious question for two educated, politically-minded individuals. And with one opting for leave, with the other remain, you can imagine that settled well.

The Conservative within Lettie was brought out early on in the afternoon when Fred questioned her dedicated to politics. He asked had she always wanted to be an aspiring politician.

Lettie responded: "At seven, my answer was to be Prime Minister."

Despite admitting she was bullied in her formative years in primary school for being 'ugly' which left her feeling 'worthless' and 'really unattractive', Lettie went on to work in the Houses of Parliament.

She went on to study philosophy and politics at Sussex University, where she interned with a couple of Conservative MPs.

Fred, already noting some concern about her passion, then asked: "When you came in here, were you hoping for someone of the same political bent?"

Lettie answered no, but then Brexit arrived. She herself a leaver, soon discovered that she was sat face-to-face with a remainer.

"Let's struggle gamely on, as Boris Johnson would say," joked Fred. It left a nice awkward silence between the pair.

In her opening gambit to the show, Lettie did not hold back.

She told the audience: "I was voted most likely to become prime minister; my political ambitions must have shone through.

"People always talk about Westminster being this hotbed of sex and everybody is bonking each other. Nobody has invited me to be part of a sex scandal, which is just rude."

She also spoke of how she had previously 'fangirled' over the ex-chancellor George Osborne.

After deciding to split the bill, Fred told the camera that he felt Lettie was interested in talking to him, but not interested on a romantic level.

He was left pleasantly surprised when she did want to see him again. Lettie added he was a 'good looking guy' and 'did not anticipate getting on with someone this much'.

Yet it was not to be. Just like Britain and the EU, it appears the second date did not end well. In the closing sequences to First Dates, we are told the pair 'struggled to maintain a united front' and that 'both plan to stay in the single market for now'.

Will the end of the UK's negotiations read a similar line? Will they decide to remain in the 'single market'?
