Holiday weekend

It was a holiday weekend here in the UK and to celebrate this I took my family to Oxford for the day on Sunday to have a look around the natural history museum and to treat them to lunch out. We had a really fun day, the weather was sunny and warm and the museums were interesting and uncrowded. My son snapped this picture of a procession of skeletons of related species, for some reason I was reminded of our political landscape, a procession of old fossils giving every illusion of movement but going nowhere. I couldn't help but reflect on the many famous historical personalities who have graced these hallowed University halls over the centuries, they would surely have disapproved of our current crop of lacklustre leaders.
