Ever since the #Brexit fiasco started there have been some crazy things happening in British #politics.

This is the craziest.

Dr Victoria Bateman is the Naked Economist. That is not a figure of speech. She is giving lectures entitled "Brexit Leaves Britain Naked", in the nude. She also gave a nude interview on BBC Radio 4 (yeah, yeah, I know).

No, I'm not providing any pics. For more info you can visit her Birdsite:

Sorry folks...

I've just noticed that the previous post containing the embedded Tweet, shows the video preview image which is hidden on Twitter.

Oops.

@fitheach I was going to point it out but wasn't sure whether it loaded only after I clicked through out of curiosity :D

To be fair to her, I think any competent economist must understand we are living in an attention economy & that this would change minds to the extent that people who would not go to a talk about economics given by a clothed woman, might go to a talk by a naked woman. To change minds, they first have to hear you speak.

Anyway, as CW failures go this is at least an amusing 1.

@krozruch
I'd found her relevant Tweet, but hadn't clicked on the "View sensitive content" at the top. I then posted the link. It wasn't until my post had been boosted that I saw the video preview being displayed. My reaction was: "where did that come from?". Had I known I would have put it behind a CW.

She has certainly got people talking. However, I'm not sure it is about the economics of Brexit.

@fitheach @krozruch she does a good job, I feel. The absurdity of Brexit is now laid bare.

(I will show myself out)

@rysiek @fitheach I wasn't up to a pun to be fair so *doffs cap*
