Transphobia, local press
This guy has not one but two great ideas on how to solve the "cars drive past me while I'm walking my dog" problem
His second long article boils down to "close this road so I can walk the dog on it in peace"
When an article starts like this, you know you're going to get an insanely detailed list of very specific traffic issues and surefire ways to fix them by sending the traffic somewhere other than past the letter writer's house
"I'm no traffic engineer, but here's a full page of my views on how to fix the traffic anyway"
Hey, RadioToday.co.uk, when I sign up for one single weekly newsletter, it doesn't mean "please then email me on a Saturday morning about your wife's new graphic design business"

Radio stations "celebrating" International Women's Day when the entire daytime lineup is normally blokes need to get in the bin

(attached: two normal schedules for radio stations which sent stories to Radio Today about how committed they are to women and IWD)
There's a photo in the paper - behind a paywall so I've screenshotted it here - of a bunch of blokes in a pub in Prague. All of them look over 60 if not 70, sitting cheek-by-jowl, masks pulled down while they neck their pints.
We know men of a certain age are most at risk from Covid. What on earth is going on over there? 🍻
Early 30s (she says hopefully). Trans. Supposedly an Urban Planning student. I've usually got the radio on. Sometimes I even like what I hear.
