I feel strangely happy reading about Britain’s new oldest woman. Annie Knight’s lived through three centuries; fought for women’s rights and was a suffragette. I’d guess from the lack of quotes that she’s not quite lucid, but if she’s still getting through a bowl of porridge every morning she’s probably got some energy left in her yet. I fully intend to be around in a century’s time if luck, health, and medical science smile on me; people like her are an inspiration. Good on you, Mrs Knight.
