How's the future looking for the Green Belt? We've updated our paper, with a few more charts - like this one - from me. This is how land use in the Green Belt looks now. Interestingly, more than half of that 'developed use' is roads and other transport.

New: how have COVID-19 rates changed over the last week in England's small areas? Green arrows show falls, purple shows rises, and bigger arrows represent bigger changes. Each arrow on this map represents an MSOA with a population of 7-10k. They are grouped by counties etc.

New local authority cartogram showing covid-19 rates across the UK in the week to 7th Nov, and changes since last week. Areas are scaled in size to their populations and grouped by county etc. 🔼🔽Arrows show weekly change, and vary in size based on the size of the rise/fall.

Do Biden's election numbers show signs of fraud? Thankfully is on the case. Spoiler: No.

If all the very many people who claim to dislike and mistrust statistics would also agree not to use them, life would be much simpler.

I hate it. I’d use Tweetbot all the time if possible but ever since Twitter essentially deprecated third party clients you have no choice but to use their god-awful React app.

Just discovered I retweeted something hours ago I had no idea about or intention to retweet. Nothing that bad, but Twitter’s hyper-reactive mobile website is a menace. The interface keeps moving around under your fingers and interactions are easily triggered unintentionally.
