👎🏻 Folks I have some disappointing news. The Lib Dem Federal Conference Committee has decided my right to safe air emergency motion doesn’t qualify to enter the EM ballot at Lib Dem Conference this weekend 😢

The motion was highly commended for the quality of its drafting and content - and I’ve received really encouraging feedback, especially from the party’s Health team. However, it ultimately fell because the motion did not address an issue that had arisen unexpectedly.
🚨 IMPORTANT: this particular battle has been lost but the war isn’t over! I’m disappointed the motion won’t get a hearing at conference, but point 2 of my motion is still achievable even without it becoming party policy👇 3/ An emoji finger pointing at recommendation number 2 of my em

A thread because I can't keep up with all the agendas, minutes, live streams and municipal machinations. If you're sitting in council chambers in Ontario, you need to DO BETTER! If your discussions and decisions sound anything like 10, 5, or even 2 years ago, you must stop now!
Everything you decide on today needs to be radically different than ever before. You need to stop taking new land and putting it under concrete. You need to make space for more people in places where stuff is easy to get to so they can walk. You need to stop pillaging the future!
The world is on fire. Everything left that's natural needs to be put into service to fight climate change NOW. Fields, meadows, wetlands, forests, we need all of them! If you're thinking about a new highway, a new airport, a new warehouse, a new subdivision on virgin land, STOP!

The English Civil War ended with the alleged beheading of Charles I in 1649. Like the previous history of England we are sold, this history never made much sense.…
If we look broadly at the given history of Charles I, it seems like he did pretty much the same thing his father did, shutting down Parliament whenever he liked and stealing freely from all those around him. So why did he fail where other kings succeeded?
Should we believe the mainstream historians who tell us he just made more mistakes than previous kings? No, we shouldn't. We shouldn't believe anything mainstream historians tell us, and least of all things like this.

Yorkshire has given the world the Brontë Sisters, the first-ever football club, Wensleydale cheese, the selfie and #Yorkshire puddings. It's also home to what's thought to be the world’s first public #railway. Wakefield’s Lake Lock Rail Road opened in 1798. #YorkshireDay 1/3 Credit: Chronicle / Alamy S...
Two centuries later, Yorkshire’s pioneers are helping to build Britain’s new low-carbon railway, #HS2, including @soil_eng in #Leeds who have spent 5 years investigating ground conditions for #construction of the high-speed route, while growing their business by 35%. 2/3 Image
Once complete, #HS2 will directly serve three of Yorkshire’s main cities – #Leeds, #Sheffield and #York – making it easier for people to live and work where they want; opening up new employment and leisure opportunities. 3/3 Image

To help stop flooding, we need to challenge the almost feudal power of those who dominate the countryside. My column.…
There's an urgent need to disband the Internal Drainage Boards. They tend to be dominated by landowners and unaccountable to government. Their interest is in speeding water off farmland. If there's a city at the bottom of the catchment (eg #York), too bad.
It often takes a crisis to expose the dysfunctional way a country is run. Every time homes and infrastructure flood, we get a glimpse of how powerful landed interests still dominate, and the great harm this causes.

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) Why am I, a remainer from Kent, putting all my energy into the #GreatNorthernMarch, rather than just getting on with activities in my own region?
It's because we need to mobilise the North to win this fight against Brexit. The north is where Brexit can and will be stopped.
2) If it were just about passion, I’d be going to Maidenhead on 24 March – to shout at Theresa May and wave a flag. But passion itself is going to get us nowhere. We need strategy to succeed. And the North is the place where we can best turn the tide.
3) The great cities of the North voted remain – the people of #Manchester, #Leeds, #Liverpool and #York knew what was and still is in their best interest. They all have strong groups: @Mcr4eu, @leedseurope, @Liverpool4EU and @York4EU who go on the streets and keep up the fight.
