A real pleasure this morning to chat to Mark Drakeford (yes, the First Minister one!) about active travel as I was taking the kids to school.

Yesterday at our first meeting of the National Infrastructure Commission for Wales we heard about the amazing things Welsh Government is doing for in , and it was a delight to see Mark using an electric bike for the first time!

What a lovely guy too. Inspirational in an understated way, maybe for future First Ministers!

This is a good piece on the post-Brexit challenges the UK government (and Johnson in particular) faces. How divergence does not deliver enough benefits to offset the downsides and why taxes have increased instead of decreased to make up for the shortfall.

This is what looks like on mountainside in upland to right of fence. I stopped there - it was alive with warblers singing.Left of fence still sheep grazed. Will new Wales Sustainable Farming Scheme encourage farmers to create habitat for nature like this?
