Thanks, didn't spot they'd updated it to the whole county, should be okay now.

Yes, some purposely obfuscated code. Here is some JS . Still working on nicely-written Perl every day at , so it still feels like punching down, shrug.

Read , saw the throwaway line “the Woolwich ferry and some school bus services – the only services TfL is legally obliged to provide”, and so of course tracked down what turns out to be the Metropolitan Board of Works (Various Powers) Act 1885 (ta )

Nice list; its own error though was the jibe at Perl at the end, just made me sad, wasn’t necessary.

Just put a big “could be anything” symbol for the day, easier and just as, if not more, accurate

More importantly, read this: "All of this is a creative act. We are telling the story that no one need go hungry in Holbeck and Beeston during this crisis. To tell this story the best way we can we have to make it true. We are making it true.”

I know facts don’t matter. But the *total* claimed by *all* MPs in the subsistence allowance (outside Westminster and constituency, up to £25/day) for 2019/20 was: £1,900.21 You can be justifiably upset or not at your MP’s actions. But don’t make it easy for them to dismiss you

There are a number being worked on, looks like; to be frank, it seems to me more a ooh-tech-can-solve-this type problem. Will they be seen by anyone who actually needs it, is it what’s actually wanted, has anyone actually spoken to anyone actually involved, etc <shrug>

The expenses MPs claim are not just personal, but to fund their office for their constituency work; plus you should claim expenses for e.g. travel to/from Parliament, just like any other job. I may agree with your list, but I do not think comparing with expenses is helpful.

Expenses are to fund the entire MP’s office (for, you know, constituency work), we should not say that is a bad or unnecessary thing.

It’s only called "> now according to the RHS of that page (wonder if enforced).

The meeting would probably go a lot better, but sadly the 5yo has all-day meetings Monday to Friday at present, bit of a packed schedule to be honest, but they do knock off quite early.
