The famous Iron bridge over the river Severn

On Thursday morning we went to Iron Bridge, the first arch bridge in the world to be built of cast iron, in 1779.

In the evening, my toothache got much worse. I spent the night waking up with the pain, whimpering until I could safely take another painkiller, then checking the referendum results-so-far while I waited for the painkiller to kick in. It did not make me happier.

This result is going to cause problems for me, but I think it’s going to be much worse for the UK as a whole.
