There’s been a surge in walking and cycling in the #pandemic. Government has promised extra billions. It’s what @TheGreenParty has campaigned for, for many years. So how is it looking in #Sheffield?

Parliamentary colleagues will all miss Labour’s @RuthSmeeth @CarolineFlintMP LD @joswinson + @lucianaberger who = eloquent, fearless + friendly ... but, I suspect, few will miss the likes of @DerbyChrisW + @LauraPidcockMP ... the @HouseofCommons is collaborative most of the time
As the dust settles I leave you with 1 last #GE2019 thought: understand that all GE #candidates,+ #councillors too, have the courage and commitment to put their head above the parapet + make their case.
#Democracy is a great thing. Can’t do this without people willing to try 👍 Image
