Can any of my twitter public management geek friends point/link me to the old (New Labour) council performance KPIs framework? Remember it? You had to either put it thru an A2 printer (if you had one), or sellotape several A4 sheets end to end, there were soooo many indicators?!

Channel 4 does not cost the public any money. It’s profitable. It supports an independent TV production industry across the UK. It nurtures new talent. It invests in investigative & foreign journalism like no other. C4 is an asset to the UK. There is no good reason to privatise.

In response to this question, here is an (amateurish) attempt to explain why I think Christopher Alexander’s ideas are so important, and why — as well as transforming software and the web — they will (eventually) transform the way we make buildings and cities.

Omicron is far more dangerous than the Flu. Many have bought into the “Covid is now like the Flu” narrative. So here’s the science without the scientific jargon. Judge for yourself. TLDR: Like for Like — IFR X 6 Flu; Mortality risk X 32 Flu.

368 Covid deaths were recorded in the UK today, the highest number for over two months. The government’s mask-free, test-free (or should I say test-charging) government has blood on its hands. Where’s the outrage? Where’s the commentary? Where’s the grief? Where’s the coverage?

It’s more dangerous for me to go & work in local hospitals now rat-running motor traffic is back in Crystal Palace. When lockdown came, our family swapped the cost of running 2nd car for an e-bike as the quicker, cheaper way to go to work with the NHS in Croydon & Tooting.

The best thing Cummings has ever written. Those who prop up dishonourable leaders, so often enable them to become autocrats and even tyrants. We have seen this over and over again in history. Democracy dies where dishonesty is allowed to flourish.

So, this may be the Covid, but I’ve been thinking about something @JEChalmers said on #QandD to the effect of: It’s cheaper to have full time public servants, than private consultants. A thread 1/10

My daughter was literally ‘held’ by the Met for sitting in a park with 2 friends in Nov ’20 when it was permitted to be with 1 other person not in your household. As she was a minor (16) phoned me while they held her & said I would be fined if she reoffended within a year

Lemme tell you a story. I was outed at 17. A mom learned that I had a boyfriend & alerted anyone who’d listen. She howled about my “corrupting influence” & insisted that my gayness was contagious. Peers were pulled from my classes. Others stopped showing up to practice. (1/8)
