who thought I was on litter patrol. Saw him drop a ciggy butt so I wandered over and acted all official - I even got him to show me his ID. Paid the "fine" there and then without even questioning it.
What a muppet!

British youngsters (and some older folks too) were among the largest beneficiaries in the EU of this scheme - we used to send about 40,000 people a year overseas to study, train, volunteer or gain professional development experience.
And we were one of the largest providers of training in the EU under the programme, benefiting countless organisations in this country.

Just having a little look through a couple of trusted Twitter feeds and this popped up as a retweet.
It's genius and could save a few 'oh bollox' moments if you're as bad at judging the size of wrapping paper as I am.
|Impact of government policy on homelessness (and related things)|
at 09:47 9 Dec 2019
There's been some toing and froing around homelessness and poverty on here lately, but I can't find the threads. There seemed to be a bit of a mismatch between people saying poverty & homelessness hasn't increased despite obvious empirical evidence of rises in foodbank use, rises in poverty in the poorest households, etc.
A new study out from Warwick Uni that sheds a bit more light on the matter. Fairly daming on central government - policies leading to massive increases in forced evictions, burdening councils. I thought it was quite enlightening and helps fill in a few gaps between the links between policy and some of the high profile impacts we see in the news.

And if so, do you know how to make the bases so they are round and not some weird parallelogram with knobs on (behave at the back)? This is important.

|Eu citizens in the UK|
at 10:16 10 Oct 2019
A promise made by Michael Gove, Boris Johnson and Priti Patel:
"there will be no change for EU citizens already lawfully resident in the UK. These EU citizens will automatically be granted indefinite leave to remain in the UK and will be treated no less favourably than they are at present."
Now given that Johnson is now the PM and Patel is the Home Sec, shouldn't we be holding them to those promises?
|To an outsider, Labour seem to be imploding|

Excluding the ongoing antisemitism row (plenty of threads on that), in the last 36 hours alone theyâ€™ve:
- had a row over labour youth group, and disbanded it
- attacked the hugely experienced Harriet Harmon and are lining up to oust her at the next GE, because sheâ€™s standing as a candidate to be the next Speaker
- and now have tried to oust Tom Watson despite him being labour through and through https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49776100
What the eff are they doing over there? Theyâ€™ve got a ruling party scoring the biggest own goals in decades or a Century+, literally, yet they donâ€™t seem able to focus on trying to beat them. Itâ€™s thoroughly bizarre.
