Like everyone else, Messi will have been seriously impressed by @benbreo at Copa America, so its fairly obvious where he is heading. I’m sure he’ll do a decent job for us until @BradDacks40 is fit again…
This is absolutely devastating. For anglers it must be extremely distressing and for all of us who value the biodiversity of the River Kent we should be rightly outraged. The perpetrators must pay a very high penalty - the Environment Agency need to throw the book at them. twitter.com/SavNJourno/sta…
The Government must change planning law so that local councils have the power to stop this - sign our petition today: southlakeslibdems.org.uk/secondhomes
From Cumbria to Cornwall, we are seeing a deeply worrying trend in rural areas of local families being forced out of private rented accommodation because their landlord wants to turn it into a holiday let on Airbnb. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9…

“Let me be clear, the criminal gangs who exploit desperate people are abhorrent and we should work to stop them. But let’s take measures that will succeed and not just be good soundbites.” @timfarron on Priti Patel’s Borders Bill. politics.co.uk/comment/2021/0…

Interesting. In the last 24 hours I made a bad joke about Latin and also wrote an article urging greater compassion towards refugees…. And got significantly more stick for the Latin gag. Maybe this country isn’t so bad after all…?

Hmm. It’s elite because only people who are guaranteed successful careers thanks to family connections, can afford to waste time on a subject whose only practical application is in understanding some of the dialogue in Asterix books… telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/07/3…
Football shirts are a rip off… or maybe not…? Just hanging out some washing and this one turns out to have been great value. I bought it for my little brother 25 or so years ago, he handed it on to my son who still wears it.
I remember this so well. The email from a friend in the know saying he’d gone. I am now over it, and have fully rehabilitated Shearer in my own heart and mind. An absolute @Rovers hero who won his only title with us. But this broke my heart. It really felt like a bereavement. twitter.com/alanshearer/st…

My first 20-miler! A challenging, long and steep run tonight. The landscape is of Olympic standard even if the ‘athlete’ isn’t. I’m training to run the London Marathon to raise funds for @Brathay who do amazing work inspiring young people: justgiving.com/fundraising/ti…

We all know it can be so difficult to talk openly about our mental health. So when someone is brave enough to admit they’re struggling with their mental health, it’s really important that we support them. If you are struggling, please don’t suffer in silence – help is out there twitter.com/Olympics/statu…
In rural places across the UK, the explosion in second homes and holiday lets is robbing families of a home of their own. Sign our petition to call on the Government to change planning law to give local councils the power to decide when enough is enough �southlakeslibdems.org.uk/secondhomesZ
Many hospitality businesses who have fought tooth and nail through lockdown to stay afloat now find themselves torpedoed by staff shortages caused by stupid Government visa rules. The Government must extend the Youth Mobility Scheme to European countries. yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/opinion/c…
Whenever you’re tempted to drop litter or leave rubbish behind, think about the effect it will have on this landscape. It’s beautiful here…let’s keep it that way. If bins are full, take rubbish home with you.  Be #LakeDistrictKind #RespectProtectEnjoy bit.ly/3BsJOyn

Man. Dog. Shed. Football. Fire. I may have become a cliche… either that or Gary Larson just missed off the caption…
Interesting to note the bile I got last night from one trench in the culture war when I said that SJ’s reference to ‘cowering’ was disgraceful… and then to see the bile I now get from the other trench because I said we should accept his apology and forgive.
Lots of noise on here about how to react to SJ’s apology. A Christian perspective: Col 3:13 ‘..forgive as the Lord forgave you’. If we forgive in the same way God forgives us, then it will be utterly comprehensive, personally costly and we will do it with gladness.
I’m seriously impressed by this. Respect is due. Let’s move on. twitter.com/sajidjavid/sta…
I don’t think my constituents who have made huge sacrifices to keep us all safe, will be over the moon that the new health Secretary thinks that they are all a bunch of wusses… twitter.com/sajidjavid/sta…
One of those good days… started with a busy surgery, then canvassing for the wonderful @fionamusiclakes in sunny Allithwaite, then a 7.5 mile run via Fairy Steps and finally I got to join the @KTorchlightC team at the Kendal Youth Zone. Time for a beer.
This is such a good interview. Best/most heartbreaking bit: “So I end up skipping the stage where I actually make the record. I write it and move on.” How many unreleased Prefab albums are there sat on Paddy’s hard drive?? twitter.com/ClassicPopMag/…
I was 8 years old. Half the family were PNE, half were Rovers. What made me a Rover? 1) the Rovers half of the family went to games, 2) this really is the classiest football kit on Planet Earth. twitter.com/j_macca7/statu…
Cheers to all who joined me on Day 4 of my summer tour in Levens, Witherslack, Lindale, Grange-over-Sands, Allithwaite, Flookburgh, Cark and Cartmel. Lots of great conversations about buses, covid, unitary authorities, traffic and second homes.
“Boris Johnson is keen on conducting ‘government by Telegraph’, so we’re keen to know what the paper’s top brass think of the job he’s doing,” @timfarron theguardian.com/politics/live/…

“We can’t deny the evidence of our eyes, that excessive second home ownership in a community kills the community.” Too many second homes are killing communities, according to former @LibDems leader, @timfarron. nation.cymru/news/second-ho…

As a carer, I know it can be incredibly rewarding but also incredibly difficult. Our nation depends on the hard work of unpaid carers up and down the country. The government must do far more to support them.

☀️ Thanks to everyone who came along to Day 3 of my summer surgery tour in Milnthorpe, Arnside, Storth, Beetham, Heversham, Endmoor, Sedgwick and Natland. 🗣️ Topics included mental health services, village signs, social care housing, parking, potholes and unitary councils!L

First section completed of Kendal Flood Prevention Scheme. Very impressed by how it blends in and by how it has improved this path.

“I believe peaceful protest is really important in a free society... For a govt to look like it’s protecting itself from those who disagree with it is first sign of slipping into a rather dangerous form of authoritarianism.” More on YouTube: youtu.be/IJVq27O-3Pc @timfarron

Businesses have fought and struggled to survive during the past 16 months of the pandemic, only to now face a devastating staffing crisis created by barmy, impractical and stupid Government visa rules. The Government must introduce a youth mobility visa to save local businesses.
There had been some pressure on the CCG to close the surgery and disperse the patients lists to other surgeries in the South Lakes, so I’m really grateful that they’ve listened to local residents, local councillors and myself and have secured the future of Goodly Dale. (3/3)
From the regular conversations I’ve been having with CHOC, I know how hard their team has been working to provide first-class care for local patients. (2/3)
I’m absolutely over the moon that Cumbria Health on Call have been awarded a permanent contract for running Windermere’s Goodly Dale GP surgery. (1/3) cumbriacrack.com/2021/07/20/und…
Who tweets infantile guff like this? Good grief! All 12 of us voted against this bill. The planet on which this counts as ‘not turning up’ must be the same one on which this bill isn’t an inhuman, unBritish traffickers charter. You do seem rather rattled by us though…rightly so twitter.com/amandamilling/…
Another double digit poll rating! I’ll be getting a nosebleed at this rate… twitter.com/BritainElects/…
Asylum seekers last year .... Germany 120 000 France 96 000 UK 35 000 "The UK is behind 16 EU members in terms of the number of refugees it takes in ... The notion we are overwhelmed with asylum seekers is bogus nonsense" @timfarron just now in Commons
