This makes sense --

/manchester-makes-a-beeline-for-new-dutch-style-cycling-network

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyl ... ng-network

"" Around 250 million car journeys of less than 1km (0.6 miles) are made per year in Greater Manchester; the equivalent of a 15-minute walk or a five-minute bike ride. A large proportion of those trips are school runs. In the Netherlands, 50% of children bike to school every day. In Greater Manchester the proportion is less than 2%. A study earlier this month found that dangerous levels of air pollution costs Greater Manchester £1bn every year""

Far more interesting than HS2, Runway 5...

A good take on the government's negotiating strategy from btl in the graun

Quote:

Waiter: What would you like to order?
People: Beef!
Waiter: We're sorry, this is a vegan restaurant. Here's the menu. What would you like to order?
People: Veal!

Edited to add -

I wonder if that will have any effect on public opinion? Might frighten a good few - I know it does me (but, then again, it always has done since all this started).

Well?

Don't tell me I'm going to have to visit the sports pages to find out what happened.

All I've got on Twitter is " Don't mention the VAR!"l

Have Germany pulled "an England" in the world cup?!

Justice Anthony Kennedy of the US Supreme Court is retiring. He was appointed by Reagan, and I don't claim great expertise here but it seems he has been quite similar to the man he replaced - a judicial conservative with something of a conscience who can be swayed and has often been the swing vote in more liberal decisions.

Just as the Republicans insisted that Scalia be replaced by a proper conservative voice, so I'm sure they will make certain that Kennedy is replaced by a more reliable proper conservative voice to give the court a clear conservative majority. I'm aware that sentence doesn't make sense but there you go.

Of course in reality the Senate should decline to consider a nomination given that they're in the last six months of the current term.
