  • Tue Jun 07 17:08 Given all Leeds's anti-obesity & anti-pollution strategies, why don't they do something incredibly easy and refuse to license ice cream vans next to playgrounds in public parks and next to schools? (No impact on bricks & mortar ratepaying junk food outlets) @LeedsCC_Help

  • Thu Jun 09 18:22 Dear @Nexter_Group, sounds like you need a proper FR-EN translator. "Do you want to continue firing" is correct
  • Thu Jun 09 20:28 100% in favour of the toddler at the end of the day describing herself as knackered. (Baumann "Londinismen": Knacker, umbringen; he's knackered, er ist abgemurkst worden) Still trying to swear exclusively in Dutch so that only one of her peers will understand any imitation
  • Thu Jun 09 20:41 Comment: @jennitpk For some people that's the first port of call (knackers = testicles), but as a child I lived down a bloody lane from a slaughterhouse, the knacker's, so it just means weary to me.

  • Sun Jun 12 18:08 Comment: To be fair, he's from a family that prays five times a day, and Westminster, in banning smacking without addressing that degree of intellectual & emotional retardation, is merely virtue signalling - which is well known, & why the legislation is routinely ignored

  • Wed Jun 15 19:29 Long chat with Pakistani landlord in the abominable Hyde Park playground: how it should be moved + café to the bowling green, need for dog-free days when sheep can mow the meadow, conversion of student lets to affordable housing when Studying From Thailand really kicks in @NHPNA1

  • Wed Jun 15 21:10 Comment: @ibexsalad @Independent I get the same, so I never click Indie links. I guess their website reads your system or browser settings & says: Spanish, obviously can't read English, send him to Spanish home
  • Wed Jun 15 21:17 Comment: @ibexsalad @Independent If they just translate stuff into Spanish, then their CMS should handle it very easily. If the Spanish stuff has a life of its own, then you can automate and/or curate link suggestions for related content - only slightly more complex

  • Thu Jun 16 11:09 Comment: @NHPNA1 Ah, hadn't thought of Akmals! The bowling green will have running water and electricity, there's a decent hedge = security, away from the drink/drug/older kids problems of present playground, no proper café that side of the uni, so move the toddlers & parents there
  • Thu Jun 16 11:19 Comment: @NHPNA1 The dog-free days & a flock of sheep to keep the grass down (no petrol mowers etc) is about the good things about the countryside having moved to the town - you've got kites to eat casualties...
  • Thu Jun 16 11:36 Comment: @ianjoicey @NHPNA1 Apart from anything, it's dangerous - sharp corrosion holes in the equipment. I cut myself a few weeks ago on a metal splinter under the small slide in the middle. But the council guy who I met ticking boxes wasn't bothered
  • Thu Jun 16 18:55 Comment: @ianjoicey @NHPNA1 I guess a new playground plays better with voters than maintaining an old one. Is that what happened to the abandoned one at Woodhouse St & the road leading to City Academy?
  • Thu Jun 16 18:57 Comment: @ianjoicey @NHPNA1 My Punjabi friend thought that people might support a local ban on pavement parking if the fines were hypothecated to fix/move the playground & establish a colony of Himalayan blue sheep on the high ground near the bowling café

Bizarrely, Twitter data downloads don't include others' comments on your tweets, or tweets on which you comment, e.g.:

/ I say something
// Someone replies
/// I reply to them
... and so it's impossible to show tweet trees involving third parties correctly.
