We will continue to work closely with people with direct experience of poverty to listen to their concerns and be the best possible ally over the coming weeks and months @abigail_scottpaul @jrf_uk 3/

To help stop flooding, we need to challenge the almost feudal power of those who dominate the countryside. My column.
theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
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.
