Can't set migration, so just a redirect. Will pin this.

Thanks to @admin
No reflection on the person who gave a welcoming space.

Just moving to somewhere with a finance/regulation structure that fits with my ideals a little more.

Hope to see some of you over there at some point, my lovely strange and diverse souls 😀

OK, my timeline seems to have gone all non-linear. Times and toots all over the shop. Reloads get different results :blobshrug:

"None of the election’s other major parties had adverts pulled in recent months, according to the records."

Google bans eight different Tory election adverts as disinformation concerns mount

Alex Cobham, director of the Tax Justice Network said: “For political donors to run companies in secrecy jurisdictions need not imply wrongdoing, but it certainly increases the risks – the risks of tax abuse, and of violations of the laws on political funding.”

He added: “It beggars belief that the UK is conducting another election without addressing any of the very clear issues of opaque funding that have been, and are still being, uncovered in relation to the most recent votes held here.”

Follow the money goes the saying. Bit difficult when it goes to a deliberate black hole. Doesn't imply wrongdoing, but it does raise questions.
Fine writeup from The Ferret.

Tories and LibDems given £658,000 by firms linked to tax havens

Conservatives and LibDems accepted hundreds of thousands of pounds to help fight the general election from companies linked to tax havens.

Back from the hill.
Nippy start, but a bright day.
-6°c at the start.

Maybe. 500 errors on web interface and an oops error via Fedilab :blobcatgooglyshrug:

Oh, and the fact that what his power grab proposes, is predicated on taking advantage of the death of someone opposed to his policies and proposals.

We are all but pawns and playthings to the privileged.

Racist, homophobic, inflammatory and looking for any chance to appeal to base emotion and provoke response. Lets be clear, there is no opportunity this man and his ilk would not take in order to serve a personal agenda. People are just toys and playthings.

I give you Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson.

Bear in mind his opinions of those that are *different* to him.

I’d rather have a burgundy coloured EU passport than a blue coloured UK-only passport. I’d rather be an outward-looking internationalist than an inward-looking isolationist. Please retweet if you agree.

Spineless and pathetic from the BBC.

I am sadly, NOT that surprised.

Good morning friends! White-out world of ice & heavy freezing fog today. The sun a perfect, sharp edged dull silver circle in the mist I could comfortably look at for a second or more. Walking through frozen meadows is a strange experience–grassy hillocks collapse gently & crisply underfoot as if my tread is folding paper, stiff peaks of mud crunch & crumble like meringue.

Feeling of lightness & hope that even in the cold my body feels mostly my own.

May we share honesty & compassion today!

Chilly this morning, but that means other people stay indoors, which is where I prefer them to be.

Phone camera has a long exposure mode so I tried some stars 😁 It came out well, especially for a phone! :o

That's what happens when you try to do a good deed...

Subtle, just a bit of colour.
Not the best picture, but you'll get the idea.
