Mr Gnome's in two minds about this sign on Oxford Station.
Justifiable civic pride, or a wee bit boastful?
Though he loves Oxford, Mr G would rather the city left it to others to toot the trumpet.
He relishes the city's beauty and its centuries-steeped air of academic seriousness.
But the unavoidable atmosphere of elitism can be hard to take - Mr G, like most of us, is prey to chilly 'Jude Fawley' moments when he wanders through the city.
