Brexit Naked Protest

July 5th, 2016

One of the great characteristics of the British is their taciturn reserve, their ability to say nothing even in extreme circumstances. Read the following report about one of the repercussions of the recent Brexit vote:

“A Cambridge academic walked naked into a faculty meeting of economists in an act of protest against the UK’s vote to leave the European Union.

Victoria Bateman, a fellow in economics at Cambridge University, arrived at the meeting on Wednesday with the words “Brexit leaves Britain naked” written across her stomach and breasts.

Ms Bateman reportedly sat through the two-hour meeting, in which 30 other economists were discussing teaching material and courses at Cambridge University’s Faculty of Economics, without anyone mentioning her lack of clothing.”   Read more.

Clearly Economics is more spell-binding than I thought!

  1. Two economists walk into a bar. It could happen!

    I have to agree with Simon Schiama that the exit vote was the greatest act of voluntary self-harm that any nation ever committed.
