Cambridge Don Strips Completely Naked To ‘Protest Brexit’

Dr Victoria Bateman
A Cambridge academic attended a faculty meeting completely in the nude this week, in protest at Brexit. But in true British style, her colleagues made no mention of her state of undress, and the meeting passed without incident. Dr Victoria Bateman, a lecturer in economics at Gonville and Caius College, appeared at the meeting on Wednesday with the slogan “Brexit leaves Britain naked” emblazoned across her breasts and stomach. But the two hour meeting, called to set teaching materials, and attended by around 30 economists from colleges across the university went ahead as planned, the Telegraph has reported.
