The professor who went naked days ago to protest Brexit has gone naked again during a Brexit radio interview.

Dr Victoria Bateman, an Economics Fellow from the University of Cambridge, appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme to talk about the advantages of the EU.

During her discussion with presenter John Humphrys, she took off her coat to reveal she was completely naked underneath.

She had the words ‘Brexit leaves Britain naked’ scrawled across her chest.

During her interview, she invited leave supporters to strip off and discuss Britain’s withdrawal from the EU.

She said:

I invite Jacob Rees-Mogg to do a naked debate with me and we will get to the roots of this issue.

She added:

Britain faces many, many problems right now from housing to the NHS, and the European Union is not the cause of those problems.

Dr Bateman said she decided to talk about Brexit with no clothes on to demonstrate that leaving the EU is the same as ‘the emperor’s new clothes’.

She told the programme:

 

I have myself written thousands of words looking at why Brexit is bad for Britain, but I thought it would be useful to reduce all of those words down, condense all of those words down to one powerful message.

Brexit is the emperor’s new clothes – that Britain has sold itself a project that cannot possibly deliver on what it promised.

The professor has previously generated debate online due to her numerous naked protests, both on Brexit and gender inequalities within economics.
