For some reason, Google + now thinks I'm especially interested in potentially missed posts from +Max Madonia​ and +mike quinn​. Both are interesting guys, but really? The algorithms are doing my head in.

Had a look at the consultation on the changes to Highbury Corner and added my comments. For some reason, they are entertaining the idea that the arboretum in the middle remains closed to the public - of course it shouldn't - but here is your chance to comment.
The site lists consultations that are run by Transport for London. On this site you can find, share or take part in consultations.

From memory, ¼ of all traffic in the rush hour are cyclists (?), a fully segregated cycle lane with traffic signalled controlled crossings will absolutely assure the safety of cyclists there.

Don't forget there is also a consultation running to withdraw the 277 from Highbury Corner. That currently has a 6-7 minute headway and will be only slightly replaced by 2 extra (peak time only) buses on the number 30.

I don't have home Internet, but I have unlimited phone data. Is there a way I can watch streamed movies on my TV? I have a Chromecast and successfully linked the Chromecast to my phone; I could stream Google Play movies, but couldn't cast the screen, which would be vital for Amazon Prime movies. Am I missing something?

Aaaaaand, the latest refresh in my +Google+​ stream brings Timo in at 12 hours ago and Jonathan at 2 days.

+Google+​, if you make it seem like a ghost town, people will think it's a ghost town. #justsayin

Well, take that UK! 🇬🇧
A UN panel considering the alleged “unlawful detention” of Julian Assange has reportedly ruled in favour of the WikiLeaks founder. Assange was granted political asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden. He is wanted there for questioning over allegations of sexual assault but he denies the claims.

"Imagine you run a butcher's shop and every week 6,000 new butcher's shops open on your next street."

Yes, the butcher that offers the best service, with the best quality meat, and at the best price, will survive. 
Black cab drivers have brought traffic to a standstill in Westminster with a protest outside Downing Street this afternoon - saying they are battling to defend their livelihoods. Thousands of cab drivers swamped Whitehall from about 2pm as a cacophony of car horns filled the air to signal the start of a 90-minute protest against transport bosses and minicab app Uber.

I would simply call it competition. If there are 6,000 new butcher's shops every week only those with the best offer will survive. The cabbie's arrogance is certainly not going to help them, they also mustn't forget the additional rights they've got over private hire cars.

When will it all end for the LTDA? Poor them, even the courts hate them now. Good decision made, hopefully the actual drivers will see sense and see the LTDA are not working in their best interests.

1953 hours of outside work divided by 52 weeks = 37.55 hours per week (not including time off for holidays). So when did this guy do the job we are paying him to do?

It then depends how much time he also spent at his constituency - I have no problem with Devon/Cornwall, Scottish etc politicians spending more time in their constituencies than in Westminster as long as they are busy, 5-6 hours travel away

Meanwhile, at Luton Airport, plans for the new terminal are progressing. In times of disruption, the public often need extra assistance, naturally the airport authority hasn't bothered with any.
