0TMSTMS — A Reassuring Presence in Brexiting Times

On Thursday 23 June Bri­tain (well, Eng­land and Wales – the Scots are seem­ingly more sens­ible) voted to leave the European Uni­on.
As the stark real­ity of what the nation had thrust upon itself sunk in I was in a rather depressed state of mind. At work I couldn’t even stom­ach my bacon but­tie such was my frus­tra­tion with the plebis­cite.


But driv­ing home I switched on the radio and was greeted by the wel­com­ing and sooth­ing tones of the BBC’s cov­er­age of the crick­et. Jonath­an Agnew was hold­ing court and sud­denly all felt good again.
Of course I’m not crazy enough to sug­gest that Test Match Spe­cial (or TMS as it gets shortened to) is a cure for all the world’s many ills but to hear that crick­et is still being played and calm col­lec­ted voices are point­ing out the rel­at­ive mer­its of a sol­id for­ward defens­ive whilst oth­ers around them lose their heads – well as long as it’s going I guess I will be too!
