"It's all about the kids." Parents have built an outdoor classroom at a school in Co Wicklow as a response to Covid-19. The classroom, which includes socially distanced tables, benches and a blackboard, enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. 🌲📚🐦✍🏻 https://t.co/otJBuGfnYm

As we see increasing restrictions across the #uk a beautiful example of how #parents worked with their kids #school to create an #outdoor classroom- where the main distraction may be “the odd buzzard” flying by. “It’s all about the kids” #Covid_19 https://t.co/eKvBxbACdl

Every single funded NERC Fellowship went to a man this year. 100%. Just let that sink in. @NERCscience

Wow @NERCscience fellowships ALL went to men this year (x 3 David’s- clearly David is a good name to have in #science ) @Paul_Dunlop_UU https://t.co/GztQW9GWk5

So, been following the #COVID19 guidance for #belfast lockdown. As in the on the news guidance. Then I look at the actual legislation.  And it seems that, yet again, if you engage with informal #childcare you are without it. I am bereft. @Chris_Lyttle https://t.co/mLwTNbO9Nm

Quoted @OxfordDiplomat

What a Disgrace. What utter lies. The man who didn’t even READ the Good Friday Agreement, Stands in front of the world, accusing the EU of trying to threaten that Agreement. Dominic Raab really is one of the greatest threats to peace there is. https://t.co/JZhXkiciOL

Honestly. I can not believe what #DominicRaab has just said. This is not coming from the eu. It is, the UK government, threatening the lives and livelihoods of UK and Irish citizens. We are worth more than these lads in charge. #brexit https://t.co/r7D2nwiIB0
