Ambiguous EU referendum sign, outside Victoria station
In the approach to the referendum on the UK's EU membership to be held on 23rd June 2016, a large "Vote Leave" notice has been hung outside this house overlooking the railway lines (as can just be made out, this is next to a poster that has for many years argued for the repeal of the ban on fox-hunting). However, as can just be made out in this snatched shot from a train, the word "Don't" has been hung onto the top of the poster, completely altering its import. By the time that the referendum took place, the "Don't" had been removed.
EU Referendum 23 June 2016

The UK is set to have a referendum on 23 June 2016 on whether or not to remain a member of the European Union (EU), an economic and political partnership involving 28 European countries. Basically, a referendum is a vote in which people eligible to vote can take part, normally giving a "Yes" or "No" answer to a question. The side receiving more than half of all votes cast is considered to have won. According to current opinion polls the British public are fairly evenly split.
