Hey @LGiU@twitter.com! Do you have any plans to update your google spreadsheet of local authority political control? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16IFv9jsi1An_8ULzm6MldnadpnMZNaQ4uIsp8_xvF_Q/edit#gid=0
This will be amazing. We're doing an @firstname.lastname@example.org special - digging into the Indices of Deprivation. Find out how they're made & what they're used for, and then we'll get right into the data to see what stories we can tell.
8th Oct - tell your friends! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/digging-the-data-indices-of-multiple-deprivation-2019-tickets-71269413735
Hey @UKParliData@twitter.com! Is there a reason that @DrPhillipLeeMP@twitter.com has no :partyMembershipEndDate here: https://api.parliament.uk/query/resource?uri=https://id.parliament.uk/J88gw8mb It could be that I've misunderstood the data model? Or maybe it takes a while to update? Or is there a formal process to switch parties? TIA!
Work in progress - looking at geo distribution of MPs voting in that withdrawal agreement division the other day - it's surprisingly complicated to do. Constituency boundaries from @ONSgeography@twitter.com, division data from @UKParliData@twitter.com, and their sparql endpoint to match MP to ONS code
Yo @ForChange_Now@twitter.com! What colour would you use for identifying your constituencies on a map. (eg Labour is red, Conservative blue, etc). You aren't on this wikipedia page (unlike, for example, the Church of the Militant Elvis Party) 🤔https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Index_of_United_Kingdom_political_parties_meta_attributes
These scatterplots (unsurprisingly) show strong correlation between people in parliamentary constituencies signing the revoke A50 petition, and people signing the no prorogue petition. Not gonna lie, I was hoping for some spectacular outliers. #rstats
This is fascinating! Pre-electronic computers on US Navy ships (in black and white times) used to calculate angle & direction for guns to hit a target, taking 25 variables (speed, direction, wind, etc). All done with cams, gears, shafts and differentials. https://youtu.be/gwf5mAlI7Ug
