Germany sell more cars to us, than we sell to them. VW and Mercedes certainly don't want import taxes slapping on.  The stock market went crazy this morning, and returned to normal this afternoon after the financial wizards and hedge funds made a killing. A lot of shares actually went up.

I see that there is a petition for another referendum because of the slim majority.

It's done. Let us get on with it.

As for multilingual children not being able to go to uni in europe..... They let in Americans so why wouldn't they let Brits go their uni's.? So long as the cash is in the till and bums on seats there will be no problems.

Well educated Youngsters will be in demand all over the world.  The problem are the poorly educated with few skills, there is already high youth unemployment in many European countries. Youngsters have more chance of getting a job here.

I would not expect it to flower the first year. if it had set fruit it would weaken the plant.  Unless it is a Victoria, it will need a pollinator.

How close do the kangaroos come, Pat?

I stroked a kangaroo at a wildlife park in Perth, the fur is just so soft. Do you get barking owls? They had some there as well, they sound like a dog barking, not an owl hooting.

They made me laugh anyway.
