iPhone : Sir Desmond believes that using a face covering in shops and on public transport in order to help prevent spread of a potentially lethal virus is a “monstrous imposition”. Must have a peek at that voting record. twitter.com/channel4news/s…

iPhone : If homes are to be developed to meet rural Scotland’s needs, then there is a case for the public sector to play an active role in initiating and shaping development.

Great blog from David Stewart. Lets make it happen.

iPhone : A depressing day walking across the intensive grouse farms covering swathes of the hills of the S of Scotland. No SE owls, kites or harriers; no mammals, apart from sheep; no trees. Just an overgrazed, over-burnt, over-managed, medicated relic of Victorias reign. Time for change

iPhone : NASA: June 2020 was the hottest on record globally, together with 2019: +0.93°C above its 1951-1980 average.
Most abnormally hot/mild weather (+4 to 6.6°C above normal) in N-Siberia and W-Antarctica. Cool in part of Russia, India, part of Antarctic, and the N-Atlantic cool blob

iPhone : I am encouraging the Council to extend the availability of outdoor seating into car parking spaces, to help businesses during the next phase of lockdown (and hopefully beyond!). Where would you like to see these introduced? I will put forward your suggestions. 🌳☕️#SpaceForPeople

iPhone : I am happy to report that these will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you would like a “parklet” outside your premises, a Section 59 permit is required and can be applied for. Let’s give more of our streets over to people during lockdown and beyond! #SpacesForPeople twitter.com/christymearns/…

iPhone : "if the same level of investment req'd to build SizewellC was split equitably between every home in Suffolk each property would have: at least 10kw of solar panels enough to power a home 4x over; 2 houses worth of battery storage systems & a Tesla model 3"

iPhone : Every UK Gov committee has more men than women - Covid19 response and economic operations has no women on it whatsoever...theguardian.com/politics/2020/…

iPhone : I'm really excited to have a regular column in the Glasgow Times and here is the first one. I couldn't think of a better and more appropriate topic than my experience as a Refugee in Glasgow.

iPhone : Many local shopping centres in Edinburgh have a terrible pedestrian environment, with people crammed onto narrow, cluttered pavements, while precious space is taken up by parked cars. We strongly support these plans. twitter.com/edinburghpaper…
