Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding. I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop... it was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

Portuguese Monarchists waving the flag

 The pre-1910 flag of the Kingdom of Portugal


The Special Correspondent has sent me this link to a Twitter post about a demonstration by Portuguese monarchists in Lisbon yesterday: https://twitter.com/ZsuzsannaKun/status/741663202887520260
