My point exactly Lyn ... It wouldn't matter who was in government cos they all try to do the job on the cheap because the Great British Public vote with their pocket not their brains ... no one wants to pay enough taxes to fund the NHS properly until it's someone they care about that's ill

and no one wants to pay an increase in council tax to pay for more police until it's them that's robbed. 

No party is brave enough to point out that we get what we pay for

Storing carrots.

Quite right Mike ... potatoes should not be stored in the fridge or subjected to very low temperatures for the reason you've given. 

However carrots can take lower temperatures and are fine in the salad drawer of a fridge, but it's an unnecessary use of precious fridge space if you have somewhere else cool, dark and dry for them.

If we want proper public services then the Great British Public have got to stop voting for the politicians who promise us the lowest taxes and we must insist on honesty about what things cost.

We can't keep telling the police and the NHS that they can cope with increased costs by increasing efficiency and making economies ... they've been doing that for so long that there's no fat left ... they're cutting into flesh now and it'll soon be the bone ... once that happens the systems, and British society, will have been damaged irreparably.
