Annelise Dodds, when a journalist asks you, as a Labour Party politician, whether or not you support strikes, you answer with the word "yes". It's really not that difficult. twitter.com/LeftUnityParty…

This is my "you can find me on Instagram" tweet. But in any case, I'm staying on here, so bloody there. I'll switch the lights off. Mastodon is too ugly for me.
Our MA Architectural History students ⁦@BartlettArchUCL⁩ have organised this amazing symposium day tomorrow. Look at that line up! Open to all, IRL and all. Come…
This looks smashing. You should all buy it! twitter.com/On_the_Street_…
Already sick of hearing the World Cup in Qatar being described as ‘controversial’. Flogging, jailing & threatening to kill LGBTQ+ people is not ‘controversial’. It’s horrific. And the minimising of this grim reality with mimsy words like ‘controversial’ adds insult to injury.

Simpsons is in an alley opposite The Jamaica Wine House, London's first coffee house opened by Pasque Rosee. It is places like Jamaica & Simpsons that created the streetplan & financial systems that became the City of London - they are critical heritage.

We should not live in a conservationist's wet dream of nostalgia reenactment, but places like @SimpsonsTavern & @saveindiaclub - places at the heart of shared urban, social & cultural stories - shouldn't be be lost for private greed. We take hope from @SavetheWbf's phoenix-plans

I wouldn't normally be one to fight in defence of restaurants populated by rich bankers, but it's crazy that heritage like @SimpsonsTavern - in the City since 1757 - may immenently close because the Bermuda-based landlord has hiked the rent with no notice. morningadvertiser.co.uk/Article/2022/1…

Seems only a matter of time before I am arrested for documenting protests for the new book. I’ve already been assaulted by the police when photographing one peaceful demo and threatened with arrest for simply standing on a pavement with my camera. The police are out of control. twitter.com/BylineTV/statu…

This, from an interview with Sam Bankman-Fried (whose crypto exchange has just imploded) is very funny. That loser Tolstoy. Think of the time he could have saved.

Coming to the most tricky part of my plant/architecture research: seeds. Anyone know of interesting books - SF or weird fiction, films or non-fiction that might speak to this subject, tangentially or otherwise?

Despite decades of deliberate under-maintenance by its owners, there is still something so thrilling about Stirling’s Florey Building, the last of the ‘Red Trilogy’ built 1968–71; it’s Grade II* listed but currently mothballed, maybe time for a sympathetic renovation??

"Davis was not a lugubrious doomsayer. He was a revolutionary socialist, hard-headedly confronting the difficulties of making a revolution, often making him far more prescient than his peers on the left". @leninology's brilliant appreciation of Mike Davis newstatesman.com/ideas/2022/11/…

I am convinced that the pinnacle of my professional career will be when ⁦@sophierobinsons⁩ ⁦@Danielhopwood⁩ and I were photobombed by Angela Rippon at the 2015 Chelsea Flower Show.
.@PpeterPeter gets it: “We could end the housing crisis overnight, if we wanted to… We should introduce private sector rent controls, halt the selling of council houses under right to buy, and build 150,000 council homes a year funded by direct taxation.”
