Cycling culture, #Croydon style. (Photo Thread - 17/06/22)
Some seem to think it's only a certain kind of people that you'll get on a bike.

Not here.
Everyday people - and they all deserve safe conditions to ride in.

@Waddon Councillors have commented on the limited consultation on the partial review of the #Croydon Plan that sets the planning policies that guide decisions on local planning applications. I summarise these comments in the following tweets. 1/15
@waddon councillors welcome the creation of much needed new homes but have significant concerns about the Croydon Plan review and the way that it has been put together 2/15
@waddon councillors question the legal basis for including so many policies in the Plan that were not in the more open previous public consultations as it applies to #Waddon and especially Purley Way 3/15

Let's be frank. The Fairfield Halls Report in the Public Interest is another deathly blow for Labour Croydon. What follows are remarks I have put on another social media platform. I attach some photos to lighten the mood as we go along. These photos come from my #XCroydonwalk
This article by me as attached was published by @InsideCroydon on Saturday afternoon.

The removal of long-standing supporters of a Directly Elected Executive Mayor (DEEM) as @CroydonLabour candidates in the local election is route 1 to Labour losing. My candidature being #rescinded for re-interview, @JamieAudsley being removed as cllr & not being allowed to be 1/6
considered in a Labour members' postal ballot, as a very good Labour candidate for Mayor, after being the by far leading male candidate in terms of votes at well attended constituency party meetings & the blocking of DEMOC activist & former candidate Ranil Perera 2/6
reveals a #Labour party entirely unreconciled to having a Directly Elected Executive Mayor. Voters, quite reasonably, will take the view "If Labour don't like the job. Let someone else do it." 3/6

UPDATE: coming up soon. I have received a response to my polite and bridge building letter to @CroydonLabLCF re my #rescinded Labour candidacy for #Waddon. I am analysing the e-mail. Time to stand up to Wotan? 1/32
UPDATE: I have read response to my polite & bridge building letter to @CroydonLabLCF re my #rescinded Labour candidacy for #Waddon. LCF Response is a top-class piece of surrealist art of the absurd. But first a briefing on the background 2/32
UPDATE: Selection process for 2022 @CroydonLabour Cllr candidates saw the excellent @JamieAudsley barred from council candidacy for not mentioning the words "Directly Elected Mayor" often enough in his interview. @JamieAudsley was 1 of 2 Labour Cllrs to speak up for DEM3/32

Sadiq Khan faced the @LondonAssembly this week to answer questions on his Congestion Charge hike, divisive statues review, and City Hall's latest budget crisis.

In case you missed this week's Mayor's Question Time, here are the important points. ⏩ glaconservatives.co.uk/post/what-you-…
1️⃣ @Tony_Devenish slammed Khan for TfL's appallingly short Congestion Charge consultation.

The Mayor refused to answer Devenish's questions about who instructed Transport for London to have such a short consultation for such a major change.

WATCH ⏩
2️⃣ Sadiq Khan confirmed that his divisive review of London's landmarks may remove statues, but "none of this has been worked out".

After questioning from @AndrewBoff, it's clear that Khan's virtue signalling announcement hasn't been thought out.

Have just started my weekend attempt to walk and run the Vanguard Way. 66 miles will take me from Croydon to Newhaven on the south coast. Will keep adding to this thread as I go!
No signs for the first few hundred meters, but reassured to have spotted my first by @ParkHillFriends
Walking through #Croydon and - while it has its iffy points - lots of beautiful green cut throughs to stumble upon

Let me tell you a #knifecrime story I dealt with last week as a GP in #Croydon which has a lot of knife crime and loads of chicken shops.
Social services @yourcroydon rang me to ask whether I had any background information on a teenage patient of mine who absconded from A&E after having a stab wound sutured. Didn’t explain how it happened and left before the police and social workers came #KnifeFree
Yes I did!
Parents had been worried about him for several years due to disruption and behaviour problems at school.
Under resourced school didn’t have the capacity to give him pastoral care and asked parents to see GP to get a referral to adolescent mental health services.
