.... think you just have to give up on Party politics and just try to support ideas you believe in.

 That's true democracy I suppose.

I'd just lift out a divot of turf with a small trowel and you'll find a brown corm at the bottom of the stem ... it won't be that far down ... the you can replace the divot.

Our last MP was a Lib Dem Obelixx ... but as it's a university constituency he lost his seat after the coalition

Just dig down and pull out the little corm ... it won't be deep.

It can look gorgeous, given time

Got them all over my lawn too ... Cyclamen hederifolium ... have they spread from elsewhere in the garden .... they'll die down before too long and you won't see anything of them until they flower in the late summer/autumn and the leaves appear after the flowers.

It'll grow branches and then it'll look like a bundle of sticks instead of just the one stick   ... eventually it'll look more like a tree without leaves

Dove - you forgot "stupid, thoughtless, self-serving".   I could go on but there's a whole parcel of that type in the Labour party too and the SNP and Northern Ireland parties and Wales and the whole darn tooting of them.

No better in Belgium.  Haven't got the hang of French politics and personalities yet.

See original post

It's the problem when so many of them are career politicians ... ambition and power ... dangerous bedfellows.

I was prepared to give your MP the benefit of the doubt Pdoc ... sadly I was mistaken.     I've been a LibDem all my life but this year I voted tactically and voted Labour for the first time ever ... now the chap I voted for is under suspicion.

It's NHS standard practice Lyn ... but I think if you're already seeing the GP regularly for an ongoing condition they probably have all the info needed without calling you in especially and any issues get discussed at regular visits.

NannyB ... that's the reason they've brought out this Smart BMI calculator ... to take account of build, muscle, age etc.  

Pdoc ... Boris and Pritti are sneaky conniving idiots ... both of them

 Being trapped under a sleeping dog is a reason to be cheerful
