It’s nearly 18 years since Britain crashed out of the European Union and it is more divided than ever: politically, culturally and racially.

A betting man visiting Cardiff in Wales and meeting a baby Brian Twinney in 1936 would have given very long odds on him making it into his teens, let alone being 78 years old and living with his family in the north of Thailand. For this is a survival story, just as much as tales of shipwrecks or walks across Antarctica.
