Thank you for having me on the @ELRAgeSpeaks Radio Show @MervChangeAGEnt. You are a wonderful host.
If anyone is interested in listening to my dulcet tone 😂 you have come to the right place.
Other reasons to give it a listen:
1. It’s sexual health week, so it’s my annual reminder that many older adults are sexually active, enjoy a variety of sexual acts, take sexual risks, but can face structural and personal barriers to realising their sexual agency and expression #SHW20 #SHW2020
2. You get to hear my Barnsley accent 😱

My cancer story - 2019

This is tough for me but I want to explain what I went through, especially before I was even diagnosed with cancer, so that you don’t ignore the signs or allow anyone to fob you off.

Here goes....

*deep breath*

At the start of 2019 I started feeling very lethargic, I put this down to being anaemic . Had blood tests done & they confirmed that I was very low on iron & prescribed iron tablets.
They didn’t make a difference, I began to feel weaker & nauseous...
The smell of food made me feel like throwing up.
I then started getting sharp pains in my chest
It got so bad I thought I was having a heart attack
The ambulance came
My heart rate was at 150
It’s usually around 67 BPM

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?

To set the scene … since the 1960s, Sheffield had been developed to encourage the private car. Politicians competed for the motorist’s vote.…
The £2 billion, 25-year #PFI contract with #Amey failed to enhance safe pedestrian crossings or walking routes, safe cycling facilities, safe dropped kerbs for wheelchair users, safe routes to school.

It was a contract to keep roads just as they had been 25 years previously.

Where should 'pop-up' cycleways go? We analysed data for 10 cities, 4 of which are shown below, finding that there are 'spare lanes' near city centres in all of them.

Results + interactive maps:

Interpreting the results (this is a starter for 10 where there is excess road space, many other options exist):…

We’ve been inspired by @SeamusBlackley - this is our favourite spot in the world, and we are lucky we can get to it in lockdown. We wonder what #bluebellwoodbread will taste like...wish us luck??!!! Image
After 8 hours, we returned to bluebell wood, and our experiment was undisturbed. @SeamusBlackley Image
Safely back in our kitchen, we gave the new member of the family a permanent home. Mick (our white starter) and Mack (our rye starter) were waiting. We decided “Muck” was the perfect name for the newcomer. Image

Despite posts yesterday highlighting issues of people still visiting the #PeakDistrict despite government guidance, the message is still not getting through. @DerPolDroneUnit have been out at beauty spots across the county, and this footage was captured at #CurbarEdge last night.
Cars were parked in both the car park and on the hill up to it. A bags of stones that was at the entrance as a roadblock had been pulled to the side to allow cars to enter. Plenty of people were walking, many of which had parked up in cars before heading out for their walk.
Some number plates were coming back to keepers in #Sheffield, so we know that people are travelling to visit these areas. Daily exercise should be taken locally to your home. Under government guidance all travel is limited to essential travel only.

My thoughts on 'The Future of Further Education' lecture by Martin Doel last Friday @IOE_London

Notably for me, this was not a perspective I hear often in my own educational bubble as Doel is ex-military! (1/11)

Full of insight & delivered in straight-forward and convincing fashion.

My summary and impressions:

-need to self-define purpose & values, instead of being 'not school or university'
- under-investment is the other perennial issue, but Doel thinks this will change (2/11)
We are now in 'post-market' economy with greater intervention:

-a strategic/entrepreneurial state
-greater regionalism and continuing devolution
-in discourse of Brexit, 'scaling up the left-behind places'
-clear major role for FE (3/11)

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

Read 33 tweets In 2019 #Liverpool and 9 other UK cities will have 5G. Has anyone consulted with the communities, and people it will be rolled out on as to the environmental and public health concerns? @peter_dowd @dancardenmp @Bill_Esterson @FightingGran @IanRCrane
The dangers of cell phone technology have been widely known since the 1990s. Many people expressing concerns are respected scientists I would urge everyone in #Liverppol #Merseyside to read the links in this article. The concerns expressed are not publicly known and how many of us were informed that 5G would be rolled out in #Liverpool this year?

The #BBC's @Hoskea10 digs into #LOBOloan bank debt at Sheffield City Council (from 27mins)… #Sheffield had to pay a £12.3m "breakage loan" to the Royal Bank of Scotland #RBS to escape a £20m loan.
Clive Betts, Chair of @CommonsCLG and a Sheffield MP said: "that the bank #RBS actually gets a double benefit, once for fiddling the #LIBOR interest rate, a second time when their council #LOBOloan interest rates go up"… #localgov #fraud
#Newham resident @rachel_shares said: "this country has to stand up to the financial institutions that made hundreds of millions of pounds out of them over the last decade. Who has the most power in this situation, #Barclays and #RBS, or Newham Council?"…

I've just been informed that I've been suspended by the Green Party again, this time for two years, for a single tweet
So it goes
Even more shocking is that I was just by-catch
Original complaint/expulsion demand was against @DawnFurness for simply 'LIKING' my tweet - I was added when it was noticed that I was a member too
She's been targetted for speaking at a @Womans_Place_UK meeting
Thanks to all for messages of support, much appreciated, apologies only replying with a 'like' but overwhelmed with things to do & really need to prioritise getting an income somehow (dj 60/70th birthdays a speciality - 'a great dance & an early night' 👍😊

Dear @BBCR4Feedback
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.
