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:
I've just noticed that the previous post containing the embedded Tweet, shows the video preview image which is hidden on Twitter.
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 Yeah, I suspect what it shows above all is that people of all kinds feel powerless right now. I wonder if a Cambridge-educated eonomics professor, if that is what she is, would have felt powerless before the vote, but still, that's my take away: a desperation to try to get people's attention to talk about what matters when so often, that isn't what's happening. Clumsy at best here, but not, I think, as directly harmful as many things we have been seeing.
I'm not sure if she is "Cambridge" educated, but her Twitter bio states she is a "fellow". So, she is, at least, taking a hand in running her department. Quite senior.
