Weird UK Oldest People Co-incidences - World's oldest man now UK guy
The oldest man in the world is now a UK guy, the Jap died.

Oldest Man (World & UK)

Bob Weighton,
born 29 March 1908

Oldest Woman (UK Only)

Joan Hocquard,
born 29 March 1908

Note they have the same date of birth.

Third oldest in the UK... born within 24hrs of the co-oldest

Violet Davies-Evans
born 30 March 1908


Here's even more weirdness, until Summer 2017 there were 3 joint oldest people in Britain, all had the same date of birth.

Alfred Smith
born 29 March 1908

So last year the top 4 oldest people in the UK were all born within 24 hours of each other.

I heard him being interviewed this morning. He was certainly no vegetable. Very smart and lucid still.

The condescending interviewer mentioned social media and said "do you know what I'm talking about?" The old fella told him yes, and the look on his face. Lol.

There is an interview with him in the BBC link above. Still looks full of energy and looks in his 70s.

They asked him what the secret was to longevity he replied "avoid dying".
