It has been a long and difficult road, but it's immensely satisfying to see this first step. Lots more work to do now! πŸ’š

I bookmarked this a little while ago and finally got round to reading it. It's bloody brilliant. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

"Despite these hurdles, what’s holding back a night train through the tunnel isn’t regulation or safety or costs, but political will. All of this could be overcome if the government decided to back a project..."

I forgot to post here, but on Friday I really enjoyed being on @[email protected]'s morning panel discussion. Here's me talking about the channel crossings. So ashamed of our Government. 😞

Redesigned my site. Now using the super-lightweight theme by @kev (with my slight edits) which is based on Susty by @jacklenox

"A theme built to demonstrate how small a WordPress site can be"

I keep the top scores on the speed tests πŸ˜€

Yes, France! "Ecology Minister Barbara Pompili said outside heating or air conditioning was an "ecological aberration"." πŸ’šπŸ‡«πŸ‡·

Β£1000 should be enough money for a really good bike. For Lee-Anne, this is less than a fifth of what they need. Cycling is my favourite way of getting around, and it breaks my heart that significant barriers are put in the way for some. Help get Lee-Anne on a bike again!

I never thought I'd say this, but can I hear more from Theresa please?

For full clarity here πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ:
πŸ’· FDR's new deal involved a total spend of about Β£600bn in today's money, not 5
🏫 NAO said it would cost £6.7 billion to "to return all school buildings to satisfactory or better condition". Johnson's plan offers £1bn
🌳 FDR planted 3bn trees, not 30mn (most of which are already planned and were in the Conservative Party's manifesto – so not news)

Anyone with any understanding of behavioural psychology could see this was inevitable after Tuesday's briefing. @[email protected]'s nuances were obviously going to be ignored, and to say measures will be eased on a future date is read as "now". πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

'...shortly before Marcus Rashford was born to a single mother who he idolises for her tireless work and sacrifices, Boris Johnson was writing that single mothers were producing a generation of "ill-raised, ignorant, aggressive and illegitimate children".'
