More chalked comments seen in a Northern city. Has the #GraffitiGranny of #Wakefield inspired Chalksy of Lancaster?

"Let's bin Brexit"

A quick thread instead on whether the core myth we need now is Restoration or Emergence, in response to @GeorgeMonbiot's outstanding TED talk. (TLDR: both!)

ted.com/talks/george_m…
In his talk, George argues that progressives keep failing because they lack a big unifying story. They didn't have one at the time of the financial crisis. They still don't now. I *totally* agree.
George argues that the story we need now is a Restoration myth. Look at the Bible; Harry Potter; Narnia; Lord of the Rings, he observes; look at the narratives used by so many great political thinkers and leaders. There's great disorder in the land, and we need a hero to fix it.

Today we remember our colleague Jo Cox MP, who was tragically killed on her way to a constituency meeting on 16 June 2016.

#moreincommon #JoCox
"While we celebrate our diversity, what surprises me time and time again as I travel around the constituency is that we are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us" - Jo Cox

The creative juices are flowing and ideas about how the work that the #SouthSouthMigration Hub does over the next five years can #makeadifference are bubbling over on to the table

Turned my phone on after a lovely day attending synagogue with my family, with its security guards with bullet proof vests, and I see our community’s worst nightmare has come true

Love and strength to everyone in Pittsburg. We must remember we have more in common than divides us
For everyone who is saying how awful this is - we can all do something to help lessen hate.

Every day do one more thing to be sensitive and empathetic to people who are different to you. It’s that simple.
And in the meantime, we must be vigilant against racial intolerance and hate.

It’s in our society as it is everywhere. It transcends political creeds.

We can diminish it but it will never disappear.

These awful events can be rallying cries for the good people to stand up
