Dusty lorry

A couple of quick mobile phone pics today…
I’m not sure how long people have scrawled dusty graffiti on vehicles, but this one in front of the Barbican Centre gave us a laugh as we walked by.

Sealand up for sale!

The Principality of Sealand, the ‘world’s smallest country’ (an anti-aircraft gun platform taken over by the Bates family in the 1960s) that I visited in 2002 and took pics of, is up for sale.

You can apply to Prince Michael of Sealand if you want to run your own nation. is Prince Michael told BBC Radio his family had been approached by estate agents with clients “who wanted a bit more than a bit of real estate, they wanted autonomy”. He described Sealand thusly: “The neighbors are very quiet. There is a good sea view.”
