Loves MK and wants to make it even greater. Needs more LibDems again, especially if they're Irish. Views here are mine alone,

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, starts this evening (Friday). Shanah tovah to all my Jewish friends and relatives.

Now that he is going to be faced across Parliament by Sir Ed and Sir Keir, do you think that Boris Johnson will award himself a knighthood?

Terrible news about the redundancies that Bletchley Park may have to make due to COVID-19. Is this not a world famous asset that a company like Apple, Google or Microsoft would be honoured to assist.

The Lib Dems have started a petition in support of the 3 million self-employed who have been excluded from any kind of government support - even universal credit - during the coronavirus crisis. Please sign it - here's the link: https://t.co/TVOsf45WOc

Boris Johnson has asked that Parliament consider sitting outside London for up to six years while Westminster is renovated. His suggestion of York has been turned down. Why not Milton Keynes?

Scrapping the body at the heart of our public health response in the middle of a global pandemic - you couldn't make it up🤦‍♂️ It's just another failed attempted by the Conservatives to shift the blame for their own failures whether it's on testing, PPE or protecting care homes.

Congratulations to Julie Mills & MK College for their "Offer Guarantee" to prospective students who have already applied before tomorrow's GCSE grades are published. “We are part of the community of Milton Keynes and that community needs our help" says the College. Dead right !

Not possible for universities to make fresh offers in some subjects to students who now have better A levels. Where students are asked to defer their place for a year they should be compensated by remission of a year's student fees & so have to borrow less.

'Gavin Williamson & Nick Gibb both knew what was going on. Or if not they should have done - all of this was forecast some weeks ago. And soon there'll be a university crisis when there aren't enough places for the applicants now with better grades.

Boris Johnson owes students, parents, teachers and universities across the country a heartfelt apology, and Gavin Williamson has demonstrated sheer incompetence and needs to go. My interview with BBC News. 👇🏼 https://t.co/qxUIjoUtKz

Dead right ! https://t.co/M1g8XoBdnZ

Yesterday the Prime Minister compared today's speech to Roosevelt's New Deal. But Boris has only released 0.2% of UK GDP. Roosevelt invested 40% of America's 1929 GDP or 200 times more. This is fantasy land.

Within the past week I have been on Zoom, Skype, Teams, Facetime, Google Meet, WhatsApp and Go To Meeting. Will I ever make a phone call or write a letter again?

Some concern that regeneration is at risk of drifting as it may not be a top Council priority. If that's right I hope the Regeneration Committee will challenge it.

Good Regeneration Committee on Thursday. Last year's direction of travel confirmed. (1) Estate renewal rather than demolition (2) Renewal to cover everything about an estate not just housing and (3) Vision & aspirations to work up from residents, not imposed from above.

It's exactly 4 years today since the EU referendum. Here's a prophecy - that within 25 years it will have led to Scottish independence and Irish unity, and that in England & Wales there will be a movement to re-join.

Some months ago I was given the box set of Downton Abbey. Approaching Series 3 I'm completely hooked. I fear for the future. Am I addicted? Is there life after Downton?

50 years ago this afternoon (Sunday 21 June) I was arriving at my digs in Ravenstone to start my first job the next day at the OU. I've been away from MK for 10 years in Paris and another 3 in America. But I've always come back here - it's such a wonderful place to live.

So Dom Cummings was in exceptional circumstances ? I feel for all those women locked into abusive, sometimes violent, relationships who haven't been able to drive to Durham, or anywhere.

.@thomasbrake - "Theresa May won't get away with burying her head in the sand any longer. The only way of squaring this circle, and of avoiding turning Kent into a parking lot, is to remain in the Customs Union and Single Market." https://t.co/mLTWFUx9R6
