Sketching in the stairs of Weston Library  (part of Bodleian) last month in a still EU member country. Oxford  voted against Brexit. There was a correlation between higher education and Remain vote. Less educated people and a man with very suspicious blond hair voted for Exit.

Pandora’s box is now open, let’s see what happens. Higher Education, Culture and Creative Industries probably will be highly penalized.

Holborn station at 5.30 AM waiting for the first train to take me to Queen Elizabeth II Aquatic Centre to swim 200m butterfly. The tiny trace on the left was a mouse. On the same group of benches where I seated, an Italian old gentleman (also heading to the pool) was whistling “La Dona é Mobile”. I imagine he sings it mentally while swimming. I always sing mentally Monty Python’s Liberty Bell March, but only in 50m butterfly. It is way too fast for longer distances.
