We can find solutions to transport in Bristol without digging tunnels, if we prioritise active travel and greening the existing infrastructure. We can also look at mass transit that repurposes road space. bristol247.com/news-and-feat…

Attended the Trans Pride South West rally and march today. Was well attended and it was great to see Bristol Councillors from three parties giving speeches in support of trans rights. Well done our Green Cllr Jenny Bartle 💚 Cllr @sarah_classick 💛 and Cllr Zoe Goodman ❤️

Doesn’t look much fun if you ask me.

Don't cycle in a busy city or town then. Get a car, like normal people!

I just had to navigate this on a Voi and it was not easy. Old guy was using a couple of bits of wood as stepping stones, utter joke.

@BristolCouncil @BristolLive @beardedjourno @David_on_a_bike @MarvinJRees @BristolDon M32 Easton St Pauls underpass this morning. My teen has to navigate this every day. He kindly calls it ‘parkour’. I call it Bristol Active Travel.

Walking down Cheltenham road to see another cyclist been hit, covered in blood and being loaded into an Ambulance. I no longer cycle into town since I got knocked off in March. How many more? How many more?!

And make them on-road so they actually repurpose parking spaces.
@voitechnology @WestofEnglandCA @BristolCouncil We needs them in #Bristol urgently , because they are everywhere in pavement, in roads, around the corner of the streets , in parks. To stop that, brings this scooter racks on . @bristolgreen @BristolLive @bristol247

@BristolCouncil @beardedjourno @MarvinJRees @BBCBristol @David_on_a_bike How on EARTH are folk meant to get round the M32 safely on foot or bike? This is every time it rains. It’s completely unacceptable, and yet, here we are. Accepting it. Our reward for active travel.

I did a… certain tweet two weeks ago. Something about insulin. You probably saw it. Anyway, here’s why I did it:

When he stood for Labour leader, Starmer said he'd defend migrants’ rights. But judging by today's CBI conference speech it seems he's now trying to outflank the Tories on anti-migrant rhetoric. And as for his stance on Brexit...🤦‍♀️ Me in @guardian today: theguardian.com/politics/liv…

Shame on this water for blocking normal men and women from getting to work. What if an ambulance had to get through? It should get a proper job and stop causing trouble for attention.
Commute into work was a bit interesting this morning in Edinburgh…🤷‍♂️🌊😱😂😂😂👇

Boycott the World Cup? Absolutely not. Instead we will go there and use our presence to highlight the issues and hold power to account. But only if they let us, and no one feels uncomfortable, and we don’t actually have to do anything.
