Right place, right time! Heard a subtle thud on the window. Went outside and found a female Goldcrest dazed on the floor. Within seconds 5 newly fledged chicks came begging for food. Gathered them up just before a sudden downpour and then released once she recovered. Good luck!

How sickening to read this!! This poor woman, just trying to get on with her life being subjected to such sustained and hurtful abuse and attacks. We must all stand in solidarity with members of the trans community and not let their right to private lives impeded in any way 馃彸锔忊嶁毀锔

One way to restore government is to update the system by removing the requirement for designations. Moving to weighted majority voting and a voluntary coalition has been Alliance policy for decades. It鈥檚 time to end the ability of any one Party to have a veto

I submitted my first written question today to Infrastructure Minister on A1 Dual Carriageway. This is an incredibly important issue and one I campaigned and have worked on. We need to see urgency in procuring & implementing the Road Safety Improvement Scheme

What has been proposed by UKG on protocol is concerning & contradictory. If there are solutions to be found, the way to reach them is through dialogue- not unilateral action that breaches international agreement. NI desperately needs an Assembly- talks can continue in parallel

We can deliver really important life changing & life saving legislation when we actually have functioning Institutions- but we are in a cycle of collapse & crisis- doing the same thing over & expecting different result is madness & letting down people of NI, so let's fix it
Only way to avoid constant cycle of collapse and crisis is reform of institutions, Alliance tells Prime Minister. See more here - allianceparty.org/only_way_t鈥

.@BorisJohnson can take that right back. We don鈥檛 need any insincere platitudes. We demand responsible leadership for Northern Ireland. Not quite sure why is coming to talk to the parties, if he is about to crash the Protocol unilaterally.
Replying to @dmcbfs
"The most significant development in recent years has been the growth of a third grouping in Northern Ireland, represented by the Alliance Party 鈥 to whom I also pay tribute. They are an important voice in the new Northern Ireland"
