Today in Ireland (tomorrow in @ABDiocese) we celebrate #StOliverPlunket: the Archbishop of Armagh, he was the final martyr at #Tyburn London in 1681. He was beatified in 1820, and canonised in 1975. In 1997 he was made the Patron Saint for peace and reconciliation in Ireland…1/
…yet in @RCWestminster there is still no place in the #Westminster Ordo for this #UltimaMartyr, & senior martyr, of all @TyburnMartyrs. Such a focus of international unity, who even has a 1924 mosaic by a Russian outside #StPatrick’s Chap in @WestminsterCath, surely deserves..2/
…an annual Memorial in the Ordo of the diocese where he gave his life? His Letters are gold… #StOliver himself potentially threads together Armagh, Westminster & Europe in a unique way. It is sad to see him neglected in the diocese where he suffered. 3/

⚡️ #Scotland is awash with natural resources. We produce five times the oil and gas we require and yet every price rise makes us poorer. We can already keep the lights on using renewable electricity alone.

1/
💷 The price of wind or water has not gone up but #Westminster prices Scottish electricity on the international price of gas.

⚠️ Our problem is that our resources are controlled by international capital - London pockets the revenues and Scots pay the bills.

2/
👆 That is why we have huge levels of fuel poverty in our land of energy plenty.

Tomorrow I receive my #UniversalCredit twice a month I receive £293.00. I have a shortfall in #HousingCrisis of £54 per month , paid my bills . I have bought £14 of food. I now have £6.21 left until 6th June . #DUP get back and form an executive .
I also just remembered my next #UC will have to be used for oil . I rely on friends and my 68 yr old father . Im also disabled and had to return my #motability car as I could not pay for fuel. My car gave my some freedom . Since #covid my anxiety is unbearable @RobinSwannMoH
So I reached out to @CommunitiesNI for support . However money for people in crisis is needed now. I have to wait up to 10 days for a call not for money . #DUP get back to work #UniversalCredit #Westminster Image

Looking forward to hearing what should be an interesting debate from an illustrious panel on what contents of the #LevellingUpWhitePaper will really mean for local & regional policymakers #PolExEvents
First speaker Mayor @BenHouchen opens his talk saying that the #LevellingUpWhite Paper was never going to please everyone due to "different people wanting different things". However, welcomes the fact we now have definition for #LevellingUp & list of govt priorities #PolExEvents
Houchen says we now need to see a delivery plan ASAP. Gives his priority as the future of #Devolution - which now has a "sliding scale" between County Deals & creation of more Combined Authorities. Says we need to see clarity around devolution in rural areas #PolExEvents

1-Don’t get me wrong, I’m v pleased that @UKParliament are now taking #COVID seriously & doing SOME of the simple things we know ⬇️ transmission.

#Masks #SocialDistancing #WorkFromHome

Assuming everyone working on the estate is >18, the vast majority will be doubly vaccinated.
2-So tell me, why are pupils (largely unvaccinated), education staff & families of both not afforded such protections?
I searched the #DfE website HOPING for advice on 😷s, social distancing, options for CV/CEV pupils & staff to work/learn from home, ventilation?
@educationgovuk
3- But NOTHING, just👇🏼from @nadhimzahawi in the last few days re LFTs, NO MENTION of any other mitigations at all.

#COVIDVaccination has only just begun in the 12-15s, so what are CV/CEV pupils, staff & those with CV/CEV family members to do?

Maybe the @UKHSA can help….?

For many years I have been commenting abt the air we breathe on #aircraft and have been and continue to be politically active on this very important issue for #Passengers & #Aircrew. Image

This continuous thread will be added to as & when I discover new issues that #Consumers should be aware of. At this stage I will simply point you to my new book: Gaspers; a potential source of information! amazon.co.uk/Gaspers-passen…

To give you a flavour of the issues at stake, read this #BBC report of a diverted transatlantic flight and its affect on the occupants of the aircraft, their findings and the #airline's response

#COPENHAGEN, April 14 - Results of investigations into the #AstraZeneca-associated blood clots “showed real and serious side-effects,” Danish health agency head Soren Brostrom told a news briefing.
What do we do when we encounter the truth?
- Are we afraid of it?
- Do we run from it?

Students at Pimlico Academy school are leaving school early because of the protest today.

They are staggering the different year groups out.

Embrassing day for school hierarchy powerful day for students who made the school stand up and pay attention.
1/5
Just spoke with to two year 11 students @ #PimlicoAcademy

They said the school avoided the elephant in the room + said nothing to the students, sent an email to the parents saying they would close early + the leadership (the reason for the protests) hid out of sight all day
2/5 They said problems started with new head teacher 'who seemed to be on a mission'.

He tried to implement Christian hymns, tried to over-emphasis 'British values' in a manner that alienated senior staff who left and were subsequently replaced by like minded ideologues.

About #pledges, elected legislators and listening to diverse opinions: we are concerned that our representatives at #Westminster & in the #Senedd don’t adopt positions which eradicate the reality of same-sex attraction & the protected characteristic of #sexualorientation 1/14
Some MPs, for instance, have endorsed the Labour ‘LGBT+’ Pledge. We give the benefit of the doubt; maybe they haven’t thought it through. We hope the #Senedd, looking at a forthcoming Action Plan allegedly about us, makes sure it considers our views in putting it together. 2/14
We want training for #RSE teachers, including the importance of watchful waiting, rigorous #safeguarding & refusal of #transingawaythegay. NSPCC guidance is clear about #secrets 3/14

Yesterday we published our latest report BREXIT AND THE UNION @UKandEU

What challenges does leaving the European Union pose for the Unions of Great Britain and Northern Ireland? 👇 Image
#NorthernIreland #Brexit is challenging the 3 strands of the Belfast Agreement and tensions can be seen in internal relations, as well as relationships with the South and with the UK. Constitutional change in now part of the broader Irish political narrative @MaryCMurphy
#Wales is easily forgotten in UK territorial politics. Welsh Government has always pledged strong support for the UK Union while favouring further devolution. #GE19 made parties assess their approach to #Brexit and reconsider their constitutional stance. @Jaclarner @DanielWinc

BOOOOM. Regno Unito, ecco l'emendamento che potrebbe cambiare le sorti della #Brexit. E bloccarla.

Ecco perché, nel mio racconto su @repubblica e nel thread a seguire (e scusate l’attesa) 🇪🇺🇬🇧

repubblica.it/esteri/2019/10…
1. Allora andiamo per ordine. Innanzitutto il primo firmatario dell’emendamento Letwin è appunto Sir Oliver Letwin, deputato conservatore moderato ed europeista, tra i 21 cacciati da Boris per aver votato la celebre legge anti No Deal, che può scattare domani.
2. È uno che spesso propone emendamenti molto scomodi, che non di rado hanno successo. Questo di domani è stato firmato da rappresentanti di tutti i partiti di opposizione. È molto breve, di poche righe. Ma potrebbe avere conseguenze decisive sulla #Brexit.

"Banks gave £450K to #Farage after Brexit vote"

Pymts for Chelsea home, Land Rover, trips to US-including to meet Trump and RNCCLE 2016🚩pymts to US lobbyist Gerry Gunster

Via "Rock Services Ltd" & "Southern Rock" 🧐

Russia ➡️"Diamond mines" ➡️Banks

theguardian.com/politics/2019/…
RECALL: BANKS: "In 12/18, So African intel officials confirmed to me that Banks, who owns diamond mines, had been the subject of two investigations by the Hawks....”

"This detailed @NewYorker investigation into Arron Banks, his Russian connections, and his opaque funding of the Leave.EU campaign makes an unanswerable case for a Mueller-style inquiry into whether the EU referendum was stolen."

1/ Saw wee bit of @daily_politics #BBC2 #Scotland superfluous to their #Brexit discussion. Job losses, limited youth opportunity, choking off of essential labour force enhancement as well as curtailment of #DevolvedPowers & real threat posed to @scotgov continuity is meaningless!
2/ That short discussion centered, as it was within #Westminster bubble & which toxic #Tory is internally most palatable to their party & who can lead 'next round' of post #Brexit negotiations. #BorisJohnson seems favourite held back from embarrassing himself awaiting election.
3/ #Scotland just isn't in the mix at all. We face the gaping maw of #Brexit with only @theSNP truly, directly & unequivocally holding us back; saying with the facts of devastation all the while: we must stop this threat in its tracks before its too late.
