In recent days, stories on various local news websites have flagged places like #Plymouth, #Hull, #StokeonTrent and #Stockport as having the “highest number of empty shops”, according to a new survey. So, here's my take (a long thread).
Let’s have a look at this in more detail, and do the one thing that often gets overlooked – scrutinising and interrogating the data on which these claims are based.
The first thing to ask is who’s behind the data, and, hence, get a sense of how reliable that data is. Articles cite the research as being conducted by a “tech firm”, Property Inspect.

I would give @Only1Argyle 6 stars if I could in relation to their 2020/21 accounts. They are out early, they are comprehensive and they are transparent. #PAFC #Plymouth
Revenue was down 19% in 2020/21, mainly due to the season taking place behind closed doors. The main hit was in terms of matchday (down 68%) but broadcast was up and academy/merch/commercial was solid #PAFC
Main costs are wages, Argyle's hardly changed during the year although went up from 69% to 85% of income due to Covid.

While incels are in the news again it’s important to remember
- concerns were raised about this over two decades ago
- Black women raised the alarm
- journalists were asked to address problems both documenting incels and their own poor sex and relationships writing, but avoided
Not just concerns about incels but worries about poor sex and relationships education, lack of parental supervision/awareness online, PUAs, g*mer**te, the far right and more, and all amalgamations of these.
Journalists may want to cover this now, because it’s “news” not recognising there’s a long history of growing problems and a legacy of many people who tried to raise concerns and in many cases were dismissed as killjoys and prudes (particularly in the early to mid noughties).

Apologies for inactivity on Twitter. Our #PlymouthCOVIDCollaborative has been hard at work. The task: vaccinate 80 carehomes, 1800 patients, 2700 staff, across 17 GP surgeries, in 5 #primarycarenetworks IN 10 DAYS. What follows is a brief chronology of events /1
Tues 5th Jan: I was asked to join amazing #Plymouth PCN COVID Collaborative team as #COVIDvaccination coordinator for #carehomes.

The Mayflower landed in 1620, carrying a group of religious zealots. And when these "Pilgrims" arrived at the place they called #Plymouth, they found there an abandoned Patuxet village where they could live. THREAD 1/x
The next part of the story, as it's told in the classroom, goes something like this: The #Pilgrims w/ their belt-buckle hats & Bibles landed in a vast untamed wilderness to make a New World for God. God in all His infinite glory provided them a village & a kind man, “Squanto” 2/x
who would help them settle their Promised Land. He would give them the gift of corn & they would celebrate by giving thanks. But the truth is more like this: Just 6 years earlier, in 1614, the English had already raided those same shores & taken the Patuxets into #slavery 3/x

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

#PraiseTheLORD #PraiseGod #Borisjohnson #Downingstreet #PritiPatel #UKParliament #Dailymail
In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

🔴🔴🔴Lorsque @BegonThomas commettait son erreur concernant Idéale, une Charolaise devenue Limousine dans son tweet, @farmers3b a lancé une série fabuleuse #ThomasCeciEstUne 👉🏻 pour nous offrir un tableau de races bovines incroyable.
Lançons #EmmanuelleCeciEstUne ⬇️
@emma_ducros je vous remercie pour votre anecdote ! @jegat5 m’a proposé alors le lancement d’une série sur les poules. J’attendais une occasion de le faire : le « kairos » s’est présenté. La poule-mouette n’aura qu’à bien se tenir.
Pour m’accompagner dans cette démarche, je vais utiliser entre autres un livre offert par le @ServiceInfoCNPO au #SIA 2020, qui propose une diversité de races de poules. Aussi, chaque jour (je ne sais pas si je serai aussi assidue que @farmers3b !) vous aurez une présentation 🐓 Image

My office was vandalised again this morning. There is no place for hate and abuse in #plymouth. As our city’s first openly gay MP I sometimes receive hate based on who I love but I know those who peddle hate do not speak for the vast, vast majority of our city.
My offer of to sit down and talk with the individuals who vandalised my office still stands but they need to be aware that hate and abuse will not silence me and my team in standing up for our city and it’s people. #plymouth
The graffiti has been reported to the Police. I want to thank @plymouthcc for acting so swiftly to clean off the graffiti and also to my brilliant #TeamLuke team for their fast response. They do such a superb job and should feel safe and secure in their workplace

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

The #PlymouthChallenge is an example of collaborative action by a number of educational specialists working together to improve educational outcomes across #Plymouth
The #PlymouthChallenge seeks to replicate the success of the other successful challenges right across the country, most notably in London and Manchester. #Plymouth needs the #PlymouthChallenge because it's in the bottom 10 of local authorities for secondary school performance.
