    Happy Gesture Day

    I'm not buying any. Although I have eaten 3 cream eggs so far this year. I wonder if different packaging is sent to different areas? I've not seen an egg with a massive EASTER on it yet though.

    Exciting times with 8 by-elections on the horizon then After all, they all want the people to vote (Just one of the many comments on twitter)

    London - Grenfell House

    I don't think they did very much wrong on the night. Their standard "stay where you are" is needed else they can't access the stairs if people are coming down, and they'd spend all their time knocking on doors to get people awake and out. Not fighting fires. If politicians want to be on call to go and do the knocking up business in future that's fine. In 99% of cases their policy works. Probably in 99.99% of cases it's fine. When your block of flats is covered with rubbish which burns then it's a horrendous situation which isn't going to be down to fire brigade unless they get to sign off all building work. Whichever building control officer allowed the cladding without querying it properly needs looking at. Whoever had an odd fire in his flat needs looking at. Don't be tough on the fire brigade, be tough on the reasons they had to be there that night. I don't want politicians putting fires out, I want properly trained and well equipped fire fighters doing that. Some of the cuts mean they don't sleep in the places any more. They went to chairs not beds a number of years ago.

    Sainsburys on the Wirral. Am going to be taking photos of chocolate eggs until Easter now. Some of these actually use the word easter on the box... Considerably more than city centre Manchester M&S

    Stop and search

    Locking people up has a couple of sides to it - preventing them from continuing to commit further crime - potentially rehabilitating them - making the prison experience so awful they never want to go back (again probably need support to ensure they have a chance of not re-offending through poverty/homelessness as a result of having been in prison.) Just locking people up and not doing anything to look at why they offend and whether they can be stopped from doing it again is pointless. You don't have to lock people up to assess them. House arrest (tagged so can work during the day but not go out after work) would perhaps be something that could be of benefit to some people.

    Stop and search

    Police to get more stop and search powers to tackle acid attacks Home Secretary Sajid Javid will give police new powers to stop and search anyone suspected of carrying a corrosive substance in public. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/police-to-get-more-stop-and-search-powers-to-tackle-acid-attacks

    https://theindependent.group/ "We all have the right to be heard." No. And they need to get their web site to show up before a lot of other stuff. Our aim is to pursue policies that are evidence-based, not led by ideology, Britain works best as a diverse, mixed social market economy, in which well-regulated private enterprise can reward aspiration and drive economic progress and where government has the responsibility to ensure the sound stewardship of taxpayer’s money and a stable, fair and balanced economy. I wonder what evidence they have of that.

    They were outside Corbyn's front door the other day. He really wasn't happy about something. You could tell by the way he slammed the car door. Does he not ride his bike anymore?
