Gene editing technique ‘fixes’ embryos who would have grown up to vote for Brexit

BRITAIN suffering from decision made due to mutations in the earliest stages of development.

In a world first, scientists have corrected a mutation, which causes the carrier to make terrible racist decisions, so that the genetic disorder will not be passed on to future generations.

These findings could pave the way for eventual cures for thousands of idiotic decisions, caused by mutations in single genes, such as choosing to smoke, get a tattoo or eat a Krispy Kreme doughnut.

Professor Hardy Weinberg, from the Council of Science, said: “Thanks to advances in gene editing and stem cell technologies we are finally starting to address endemic stupidity that can blight the lives of millions of people.”

“We can use ‘genetic scissors’ to snip away defective genes that result in defective decisions allowing the embryo’s cellular repair systems to replace them with more rational versions.”

“Gene editing is still in its infancy and we do need to proceed with care, paying the highest attention to profound entertainment considerations.”

“If our techniques resulted in the elimination of all Brexiteers, who would we laugh at then?”
