The recent warm, dry weather has led to an increase in wildfires that are devastating to wildlife and habitats. 🔥🚒

With the sunshine set to continue over the weekend, we’re asking countryside visitors not to light fires or fly-camp. ❌🔥

1/4🧵 Image
Disposable BBQs are the cause of many wildfires. They should only be used at designated places where signs allow them, then be disposed of responsibly after the ashes are cold. 🚮

Fly-camping is staying overnight in vehicles or tents without the landowners’ permission. It increases the risk of starting wildfires from campfires, BBQs and discarded litter. 🚐⛺

2 years ago I had my 2nd @ASTRAZENECAUK #COVIDVACCINE
Within hours there was a burning feeling going from my trunk towards my face
An increase in intense itching, pins & needles
Vibrations in my foot, leg & thigh
Tight feeling going around my chest, ribs & back

Nerve pain down my neck, I thought I had shingles
shooting pains in my legs, arms & face
Increase in joint pain
Increase in fatigue
A sort of trembling inside my trunk
My thinking got worse, I was having to practice in my mind what I want to say
& other symptoms I can’t remember
Why did I have the 2nd #COVIDVACCINE after having problems after the 1st?

Initially a lot of the original symptoms were thought to be caused by my #diabetes so I was advised to have the 2nd one

But after the increase in symptoms after the 2nd, we knew..

When are @SeneddWales going to debate about the #chronic #VaccineSideEffects that are impacting on our lives

@WelshGovernment are responsible for the rollout of the #CovidVaccines in #Wales, so where is the help & support that we need?
@WelshGovernment @PrifWeinidog @vaughangething @CMOCymru @Eluned_Morgan & more kept saying how safe & effective these #CovidVaccines were

Encouraging us to have them, especially with being ‘classed as vulnerable’

Protect yourselves , protect your loved ones
Why am I tagging you all

Ive tried desperately to get well again

Ive asked for help from so many

Some ignore, so well, haven’t helped

I emailed @Eluned_Morgan

Much more was known 2022 compared to the info I was given in 2021 when I had my #CovidVaccines ImageImageImage

@WelshGovernment @SeneddWales @vaughangething @PrifWeinidog @Eluned_Morgan

When are you going to start looking into this

You have had plenty of time now

Why have groups like @ukcvfamily & @VIBUK1 have to campaign to get us heard ?
Ive had email correspondence with my MP, who informs me that healthcare is the responsibility of @WelshGovernment , also Welsh Gov are responsible for the rollout of the #covidvaccines in #WALES

MP writes to Térèse Coffery & despite reminding her, there’s no reply
MP goes on to write, he hopes that I get a better response from @WelshGovernment

Yeah right!!!

I raised I’d had health problems after @ASTRAZENECAUK by email to Eluned Morgan April 2022

She didn’t want to know…

Statues of ‘old White men’ may need to be destroyed, Welsh government advises

The government says the statues are 'offensive' to 'diverse modern public'.

Whites find their countries being demographically altered and any proof that they exist being erased or diluted. Image
First they claimed it’s only statues of slave owners while honoring the likes of John Chilembwe and Mahatma Gandhi.

Now, they are simply destroying and removing statues and paintings of any White men because it “offends” the “modern diversity”, which nobody asked for.
Whether Whites wants to acknowledge it or not, there is war being declared against us.

Our media, courts, politics and education have been infiltrated and taken over by traitors and an enemy that we have resisted for thousands of years. ImageImage

🔆UK: 50 Indian students suspected to be victims of modern slavery in North Wales
1. Investigators from Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) in its probe identified "more than 50 Indian students as being potential victims of modern slavery and labour abuse over the last 14 months" while working at care homes in North Wales.
2. The investigative agency got a court order against five people of Indian origin who abused these 50 students. GLAA was granted a Slavery and Trafficking Risk Order (STRO) indefinitely against the defendants at Mold Magistrates' Court last week.

Today it's Day 336 of #Russia's full invasion and war on #Ukraine.

It's also a special day for many people.
Burns' Night in #Scotland
St Dwynwen's Day for lovers in #Wales
While it's also the 45th birthday of @ZelenskyyUa - mnogo lita Mr President!

Here's the daily thread
@ZelenskyyUa It should also be a very special day for #Ukraine's military leaders with confirmation coming from #Germany and the #USA that the country's top fighting tanks are finally going to be given to the country.

The news leaked out y'day. Here's Tuesday's thread
It's also been a very pleasant start to the day for me, to see two more donations to my "coffee fund" this morning.

Eric and Renée (who has been super generous), I give you my sincerest thank yous.

And thanks to everyone who writes messages of support or kind words.

A sprig of mistletoe that had been used in the Christmas decorations of a church would bring good luck to its possessor 🌿

If an unmarried woman placed a sprig of mistletoe taken from the parish church under her pillow, she would dream of her future husband 💍

This is thought to be the earliest photograph of a snowman in the world and it was taken in Wales ❄

As a follow-up to my article on the #WorldCup2022 for @PillarCatholic, a couple of notes on religious aspects of this tournament.…
1. This is the first time the World Cup is being played in a Muslim country, and only the second outside of the traditionally Christian world. The first was South Korea & Japan in 2002.
2. 2002 also marked the furthest a traditionally Muslim country ever progressed in the World Cup, with #Turkey placing 3rd, after beating South Korea in a very exciting game.

Today is the 30th anniversary of my company. On the 20th November 1992 I sold my first bottles to and tiny independent shop wine in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Since then the ride has been amazing.
From my first sales I slowly built up my range of products and my first important break was to get the exclusive UK agency for @chateaufilhot. We still work with the De Vaucelles family today and it been a key part of my offerings for over 2 decades.
At one point I was selling @chateaufilhot to Sainsburys and also working night shifts at the same company to make ends meet. I never told @Just1nHS the wine buyer at the time. Funny we both live in Southern France now!

UK Plebs!
Inspired by @modernTman's #BeefInitiative I've started orange pilling local family farms in my part of the world: #Wales.
My neighbour @redrubykate has a herd of slow maturing Red Ruby cows & she is now accepting BTC for her excellent beef.
Kate's farm is a family hill farm that is desperate to reach out directly to their customers rather than selling to supermarkets. We've been buying their meat for ages and can vouch for their conscientious farming methods & exceptional meat quality.
I am also putting together a simple database of local UK farmers who accept BTC for their beef on the website It's not quite ready yet but we're looking for suggestions of other farmers to add to the database, so please DM me if you know of any.

1/6 We have submitted our response to the @WelshGovernment's consultation about plans to extend the six-month notice period landlords are required to give to apply to existing tenancies
2/6 Shelter Cymru supports increasing the notice period for pre-existing tenancies from two months to six months as soon as the Renting Homes (Wales) Act comes into force on 1 December 2022 #RentingHomes #Wales
3/6 We are pleased that the @WelshGovernment has championed the benefits of longer notice periods - allowing more time to find alternative accommodation locally in our pressurised housing market, for moves to be planned and disruption to family life and finances to be minimised

🚨 The fifteenth & final report on non-devolved provisions of the Coronavirus Act (2020) has been published.

Since the last report, all temporary, non-devolved provisions in the Act have now expired or been
repealed. Apart from some 'permanent provisions' under the Act...contd.
Although the majority of provisions have expired, specific powers remain in force under the Act & new primary legislation is required in order to repeal them.

We imagine this will be completed after the winter season has ended, i.e. by 31st March 2023.
(i.) Section 11 relating to continued indemnity cover for 'NHS clinical negligence'. Make of that what you will.

(ii.) Section 63, yet again the Govt are retaining these powers to make further provisions, if necessary, within the Act.

🚨 THREAD: As #Britain continues to mourn the loss of #QueenElizabeth II, the remaining provisions of the #CoronavirusAct are due to expire in #Scotland on 30th Sept & #England #Wales around the same time.

But some 'permanent provisions' may not expire as expected... (contd.) The Coronavirus Act (2020)
While three of the provisions & a part of the fourth (s.55b) were repealed, there's mention of provisions remaining 'necessary' to support 'pandemic recovery' & the Govt Living with COVID plan.
The 'permanent provision' of s.63 - 'power to make supplementary provisions' & it's permanent fixture by virtue of s.89 of the Act, raised our eyebrows 👀

'Retroactively' to our interpretation is the Govt saying that they don't want to let go of this particular power.
