Goodness. What a strange few days for the UK. My social media feeds are mostly full of people expressing sadness and anger about the outcome of the referendum on the EU; and anything else appears to have taken a back seat.

I’ve spent much of the last few days watching the domestic BBC News channel and, of course, listening to the radio. BBC Radio 4 ‘s Today Programme was a fascinating listen on Friday morning on a long drive (courtesy of TuneIn), and I’m also grateful to have access to the BBC World Service on DAB+ here in Australia (disguised as ‘SBS Radio 4’ for reasons that currently elude me). I’ve also dipped into coverage from LBC. This is a time when reasoned analysis is rather helpful.
