Android : Transport for London is right to be increasing the congestion charge later this month, and I have written to support the changes with a few concerns. You can respond here: tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/…

Android : Even if Sharma has tested negative, and the negative is accurate, he had some illness and may well have passed that illness to others. So what he has others may get. And every one of them will have to isolate and take a test... Covid-19 is not the only infectious virus!

Android : This is a once in a lifetime moment to transform the way we live, travel and work – tackling the health, climate, nature and economic crises all at the same time - and creating a more equal and secure future for us all. theguardian.com/environment/20…

Android : I'm (if very lucky since no 10 on the list) going to ask about #obesity and #COVID__19.

At the heart of the problem is our broken #foodsystem. Will the government tackle this as the #publichealth emergency that it is? twitter.com/UKHouseofLords…

Twitter Web App : Which MPs gave our parliamentary democracy away yesterday???? twitter.com/JolyonMaugham/…

Twitter Web App : Let's not call these people "migrants". They're people who live and work in this country, raise their children, pay their taxes, help the economy, with no recourse to state help when in need. They're like you and me. Johnson was shocked.
