I agree, palaisglide. But most refugees are pleased to have a place of safety. Many have added to our culture. I have no objection to anyone, coming here, working, and adding to our society, where there is free speech and a huge amount of tolerance to differing life styles. 

However, I object strongly to being treated as an inferior species, and being told what I can wear and  do in my own country.  I also object to having any religion being used as an excuse for their warped barbaric behaviour.

This country is taking refugees from the camps (first safe country) There is a chance that identities can be verified, and balanced families, consisting of men, women and children, can be assimilated into our society. A huge influx of young men, leads to a gender disparity, and will lead to the sort of trouble they have in Cologne.

I have had a young male spitting at me that "I know my right. I asylum seeker. I get everything free"' 

There are already parts of Derby, where I will not work, due to leers and comments from muslim men. This as a woman in my fifties, dressed in flat shoes, a business styled navy trouser suit, and a long sleeved shirt. My long hair in a bun, but no headscarf. It is getting worse each year.

Women are subjugated  in this country by illegal  Sharia muslim courts.  If you want to live in a muslim state under sharia law, go and live in Saudi Arabia. How many refugees have they taken?

Hostafan has been given the story to keep the tourists quiet. Just the same as the plane that blew up wasnt a bomb according to Egypt tourist dept. The egyptians will say anything to keep the tourists.  "A deal that went wrong" and they came at them with a pellet gun and knives? And an isis flag?

There is an invading army of testosterone fuelled young men coming across Europe. Some of them have a terrorist agenda. The mayor of cologne has already advised women to cover up, so as to not inflame these men . I do not want to have to wear a burkha in my own country.

Refugees should claim asylum in the first safe country they arrive in. Australia stopped the illegal immigrants and boat people at a stroke, when they said that they would never give citizen status to anyone landing illegally .without a proper pre arranged visa.

I do not want any immigrants who want to change this country to their medieval barbaric system that treats women lower than dogs.

Not a lot happening here. Himself got a new ipad, and I got some onion seed. I have loads of plant porn, it seems a new catalogue falls through the door every day. Sarah Raven takes the prize for the best illustrated, but at her prices I will be getting seeds in and growing my own. Chiltern has few pictures, more left to the imagination. More hard core, or as himself says, fifty shades of green.

I had another man to measure up for the kitchen. I forgot to tell him I need a cupboard with heavy duty locks on for the biscuits and crisps.

I find aquilegias sown as late as March will germinate ok. If not, left to August and you have little seedlings to overwinter.

My psychic powers are failing me, tonight. It must be because I dropped the crystal ball at work.

Check for scale insects as well. They can be removed with a piece of cotton wool soaked in meths.

Well the shooting in Cairo yesterday, and this in Hurghada, will finish the remnants of the Egyptian tourist business. 

I hope you are both safe, Hostafan.

Anyone done any gardening today?
