Yay! La Leadsom est suddenly disparu in a puff of green smoke!
Sorry about the Franglais but I just had to on this occasion. I was driving when news of her withdrawal from the Prime Ministerial contest came over the radio. If it had been possible to do a wheelie in a Skoda Fabia half way up the A2, I do believe I would have.
To continue the blue-green theme: Three thousand two hundred blue-green, naked people in Hull.
(Hull: part of Oop North.)
The blue-green people came together to make yet another art installation, this time choreographed by American photographer Spencer Tunick. Nerve-wracking as it is to be British at the moment, it’s getting to be almost fun. I can’t remember …well, any time I could have said that.
I gather it wasn’t a very warm day but then we Brits are used to stoical huddling behind wind-breaks on the beach in March and being drenched at bus-stops all year round. Stretching out in the middle of the road must have been uncomfortable, though. The oldest participant was eighty.
The actual title of the installation is Sea of Hull. Hull is a port so it symbolises the city’s maritime connections. The Sea will be returning to Hull in 2017 as part of its City of Culture celebrations.
Do you think they felt any less bare because they were blue?
