    We've got a buddy rider. Works well as small dog transport. Folds mostly flat, could easily be used to get some shopping home.

    Setup is more involved than just a bag but probably safer overall.

    If you do go bag route then harness, lead and connect physically to bag. If dog exits then at least they won't be loose in traffic.

    Highbury West Scheme details has been published and it shows them cutting the route along Drayton park to cut the corner from Holloway Road to Seven Sisters. It's joined up with Highbury Fields to cut out through traffic from Balls Pond to North of The Arsenal Stadium.

    Altogether that should lead to some significant re routing of traffic through Islington and Hackney to the East. It will be interesting to see the results, especially as I live just to the West of the schemes and therefore the knock on for traffic cutting through my part of the borough should be beneficial.

    I read a good debunking of that nonsense, a pertinent point being article 61 was removed from the 2nd and subsequent drafts and therefore doesn't even exist!

    Does #BritishLivesUK scan as Black Lives Matter does?

    It's fairly self evident that Tesco staff have a lower job stress than teachers and arguably better pay/qualification ratio.

    Hybrid or Blended learning as my school calls it is a bodge at best, and a fucking nightmare of increased workload and on the job stress at worst.

    I thoroughly resent being made to work through a lockdown for sake of other people's kids. Having to bodge together a video presentation and a normal lesson at short/zero notice is not on my list of fun things to do.
