This is Leanne. We’re having a small private funeral next week (though Theo and I are already planning an epic memorial event for ‘after the germs have gone’). If anyone would like to donate to charity in Paul’s memory, I’ve set up this JustGiving page.

This is Paul’s wife, Leanne. Paul passed away yesterday. It was entirely unexpected but peaceful, in his sleep. We will miss him horribly.

Not asking the hard questions even though the region where his constituency is has the highest per capita infection rates. Old fashioned lobby fodder.

Thank you - he’s in bed now but I’ll tell him in the morning and he’ll be so proud!

We’ve been in lockdown for fifty days now and getting our daily exercize has meant that for the first time, the boy has managed to run 5km without walking. Very proud of him hitting this milestone, and with today’s brilliant Whitley Weather, he enjoyed celebrating at the end!

The Council taking a leaf from the book of the monks of Westvleteren to make a trip to the tip a premium experience!

It's another example of the projection of his own motives onto others. He assumed that people would just cheat the rules, as he has spent his life doing, and then was staggered when people took them really seriously (because of genuine fear). He doesn't understand good faith.

I don't think that is the purpose; its point seems to be to create a logic trap that if you oppose them, you can be framed as saying that you think all employers are unreasonable, a clearly unreasonable position. so it shifts benefit of doubt from you to them.

I wrote this a few months ago after a speeding driver decided to stop and abuse me, and was a bit surprised when i answered back. As a coda, i've basically given up cycling with my son and we go running instead.

It needs to be a collective response though, because it can be quite scary/ intimidating calling out this selfish and dangerous behaviour when you are also primarily concerned with looking after your children. Not sure how we get there but we definitely need to change this.

Cyclists have to push back. Say that that is not reasonable. Highway code is clear, you can ride two abreast on the road and that you can position yourself on the road where it is safe for you, and you are responsible for judging what is safe for you as cyclists.

People who voted for a clown to drive us over the cliffs to disaster surprised when a clown drives us over the cliffs to disaster.

A total contrast of weather today that proves my saying that the coast is somewhere where whatever the previous days weather was, it can always be 10degrees... good for the average speed though because it was too grim to really stop! Loved the little farm at Shiremoor!

Cisse but also tiote. Great player at his prime, was there to see him score the 4th against arsenal despite living in NL.
