Right now @BBCRadio4 @BBCr4today have @AndyBurnhamGM on, spinning yarns & trying to blame everyone but himself for the farce that his vehicle charging plans are in. Completely contrary to his last appearance @TransportCttee
He has U-turned & his ‘manofpeople’ shtick = transparent

A reminder that it is ⁦@SadiqKhan⁩ as Mayor of London who is also the elected police and crime commissioner for London - and all he does in this article is pass the buck of responsibility.

No leadership, no humility & no apology to Londoners


@NaomiLWood Many adults carry the weight of being labelled something as a child. We all need to be so mindful of how we talk, and what our words mean.

We did ok in the end. Likewise the ones labelled as ‘bossy’.
Replace ‘bossy’ with having leadership skills.
Replace ‘chatty’ with the ability to communicate.
Replace ‘shy’ with considered.
Replace ‘reluctant’ with measured.
Replace ‘unable to sit still’ with active.
Words matter

Language matters. I have made clear that the word ‘woman’ should not be removed from key women’s health pages.

I have been assured that the changes highlighted below, as well as others, are being reversed.


As Future of Aviation parliamentary group chair, earlier I wrote to the Prime Minister and tabled House of Commons questions to ensure Britain continues investment in becoming a world leader on sustainable aviation fuels research and development.

Something I continue to wonder - many European cities have street tram networks but even those UK cities with trams have built them largely grade separated, almost like heavy rail (many of course are conversions). Why don’t we have street trams like Basel, Bern, or Budapest? https://twitter.com/createstreets/status/1541619874363064324

Why cities should have trains & trams. And why towns should have trams

Steve Bray has spent six years screaming abuse through a loudhailer at me and many others as often as he saw us for the ‘crime’ of trying to fulfil the democratic decision of the UK to leave the EU. This action by the police to stop his violent protest is very welcome 👏👏👏 https://twitter.com/lbc/status/1541754410392555521


A large group of police surrounded Stop Brexit Man Steve Bray and seized his speaker under a new law banning ‘noisy protests’ https://www.lbc.co.uk/news/police-swoop-stop-brexit-mans-speaker-under-new-law-banning-noisy-protest/
