I worked from home a fair bit last week (more on that later in the thread)

On Thursday I was going out for dinner in town and needed to take my bike in for a service.

I snapped this in Holyrood. It was 17:10. The queue backed up round the corner past the Salisbury Crags. 1/5
No LEZ is in place yet, and this park gets congested. If the #Edinburgh LEZ is not amended to include the park, I fear this will become the norm.

With that comes increased danger to the people enjoying the park and the wildlife residing there. 2/5
I mentioned I WFH (worked from home) last week. So it goes without saying I wasn't having to #commute.

With today's technology, more work can be done remotely, and remotely doesn't have to mean a different city or country, it can just mean a few postcodes over. 3/5

Today we’d like to tell you about fore-edge painting...

#Foreedgery
Which is a technique for decorating a book's fore-edge (the edge opposite a book's spine).

#Foreedgery
There are several types of fore-edge painting, including painting directly onto the fore-edge, but what we’ll look at is the ‘fanned’ technique of fore-edge painting.

Finally got to see @MaryQueenMovie in a cinema, a different experience to the laptop preview, the big screen emphasising the beauty of the whole thing. So I thought I’d update what I said on @ScotlandTonight ... first on its #anglocentric version of Scottish history ...
The credits give a big shout out to John Guy & his book ‘My heart is my own’. Dr Guy is a fantastic English TUDOR historian. #MaryQueenofScots was a Scottish STEWART. It shows...
This #anglocentric perspective, predicated on notions of English cultural/governmental superiority & echoed in ancient English claims to overlordship of Scotland, surfaces immediately as #MQS lands on a wild beach instead of the stone harbour at Leith ...

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

1/"Ian Paisley apologises at supporters' meeting" bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northe… "Mimicking the actions of the Conservative MP Boris Johnson, a number of Mr Paisley's supporters served tea & biscuits to the waiting media."Does that seem like taking the piss' to you? #JustSaying #Brexit
2/ "The North Antrim MP could face a by-election if 10% of his constituents sign a petition. A recall ballot, where voters can sign a petition calling for a by-election, has been opened.The recall petition is the first in UK parliamentary history." #Brexit #Northernireland #Derry
3/ "In politics they say when you are explaining you are often losing the argument. In recent weeks Ian Paisley has been doing a lot of explaining.
This meeting was organised by supporters of Ian Paisley so the suspended MP was speaking to a very receptive audience. He was in

Dear @BBCR4Feedback
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.
