Saviour Suella rouses Tory faithful with speech of batshit and bile

I am a hate figure because I tell the truth, she lied. Not even the most deranged Tory thinks Labour has an open borders policy. The reason shes a hate figure is because theres plenty to hate.

The fruits of austerity - at last the Government have realised that we don't have enough prison places after a decade or more of cost-cutting:

'The Justice Secretary Alex Chalk has announced new measures that will allow the government to rent prison cells overseas to ensure dangerous offenders can be locked up for longer.'

In the apportionment of parliamentary constituencies is related to rather than data. has estimated that under registration in deprived areas is worth about thirty seats to the - about what I have reckoned for the currently biased . So both are serious issues for democracy in the .

One of the things Im interested in is . So, I love following the hashtag on the fediverse. I get to see people using native plants in their gardens, talking about interesting species, and showing great gardening photos.

However, the native plant gardening community is pretty big. And the social web is a world-wide social network. So someone posting about native plants in Israel or UK or Australia isnt going to be posting about the same plants as I am. There are some shared practices and shared pain we all have to go through, but a lot of the specifics depend on where your garden is.

So, it would be neat to have a way to focus our posts about native plants on a specific area. One obvious choice is our political region say, the state, city or country that your garden is in. So tagging #QuebecNativePlants or #UKNativePlants, or #NativePlants #UK.

There are a couple of problems with this. First, plants and animals often cluster into ecological areas. So, desert plants and animals live in the desert swamp plants and animals live in the wetlands. If youre trying to match your garden to the local ecosystem, planting desert plants in the wetlands isnt going to work!

Many countries, states, and even cities encompass multiple ecological areas. So, Quebec native plants could mean plants native to the St. Laurent River lowlands, to the Appalachian mountains, or to the Alpine tundra of the far north. And the ecological areas extend past the borders of any region or country my region has more in common with the ecology of Vermont and the Adirondacks than it does with that of the Atlantic coast.

So, I think it would be nice to tag our photos and posts with information about our local ecological area, and not worry so much about political borders.

The good news is that there are ecologists who have carefully studied the extent and boundaries of ecological areas worldwide. Even better news is that they often agree pretty well about the rough boundaries of these areas.

The bad news is that they dont always use the exact same names for the regions. And, of course, the names are language dependent weve got different names in English and French here in Quebec for the same ecoregions.

My garden is at the border () of the WWFs ecoregion and the ecoregion. But the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) calls the same places Northern Appalachians and Atlantic Maritime Highlands and Eastern Great Lakes and Hudson Lowlands.

There are also codes to be used. The CEC calls these areas 5.3.1 and 8.1.1, in their dotted-number format. But the WWF calls them NA0410 and NA0226.

I think the right thing to do is use the WWF names and/or the WWF codes. They have worldwide coverage, unlike the CEC or EPA or ECCC ones. They are kind of long to write out, though!

I really like the fediverses hashtag culture, and I think this is something we can work out with practice. At worst, well put multiple tags on the same post, so more people can find it. Its not really that bad!

It's easy to see why & Russians have so much contempt for most democratic nations, because we have actively enabled oligarchs to infiltrate and corrupt our democratic systems, bribe their way through our national policies, sponsor divisive media outlets, and use aggressive against us.

Lawlessness and in democracies is the corrosive liquid that could kill them.
