Good morning Chicky   and the rest of you as you arrive  and G'day to Pat

Lovely plants - aubergines look so beautiful when they're growing

Wonder how Hosta's doing?  He should be home with his feet up now.

Glad BL had a lovely day - which pub and which tea house were they?    We're not very well up on rural Norfolk pubs as we tend to head to Suffolk to see Ma when we've got a day to play ... we see her in the morning then have a pub lunch, but of course they're always pubs in the Southwold area which I know well. 

One day we'll explore Norfolk pubs with more rigour!

Runny beak, why do you think 'the floodgates will be open after the referendum' ? On what are you basing that statement?

If leaving the EU will prevent asylum seekers and refugees arriving here - why are there so many in Norway?

Lovely trees, and important in the ancient folklore of this country.  We've had to have one of ours felled ... we hope the other survives.

We are the 5th most successful economy in the world ... this has happened while we're in the EU

Newbie Q regarding bare root plants

White shoots at the top sticking out of the ground.

Roots in the ground.

Don't worry about the white shoots being wonky - they'll straighten themselves up.

Think I'd grow them on in pots until they get a bit bigger to protect them from slugs and inclement weather.

..... Dove,  ..nevertheless, the majority vote was 61% and ignored.  Maybe the rest of the population couldn`t be bothered because they thought it to be a futile exercise  


There is a turnout figure  - I think it's 30% (with a tolerance each way of 3%) below which the vote is invalid - I understand that is why it is being ignored.

......  Why won't eastern Euopeans be able to apply for jobs here, they always did, or is that something the EU will put a stop too? ....


Lyn ((hugs))  sorry about your father.

Eastern Europeans weren't freely able to work here before their countries joined the EU.  For a start, their countries were part of the USSR and they could only leave with permission from the Soviet government.   After the USSR disintegrated many of the individual countries opted to realign with western Europe, and several have joined the EU, after meeting the conditions which were laid down.  This was encouraged by the west as it gave NATO the opportunity to station troops and missiles in Eastern Europe, thus getting right up Russia's nose.  This is why Putin has moved to stake a claim to the strategically important Crimea which used to be part of Russia before it was 'given' to the Ukraine in 1953 by Krushchev who came from the Ukraine. 

Outside of the EU arrangements, to work in most other countries you have to have a Work Permit.  Brits can't go and work in the USA or Australia or most other countries without one.  Americans, Australians, Kiwis, Chinese, Indians etc have to have work permits to come and work here.  You usually have to prove that there isn't a Brit available to do that particular job. 

If we leave the EU it will be the same for Brits who want to work on mainland Europe - they will have to get a work permit.
