Independence Day?

It's a democracy. Those who didn't vote can't complain.

Slightly more than half of those who voted voted out, the rest in. The reasons why are likely to have been shaped by individual circumstances and experiences, and that should be respected. I don't see why this should degenerate into a slagging off contest. We lost some valuable members of the forum last time, they are missed.

Time to respect others opinions and move on.

Whats this rogue?

Ist one looks like apple tree leaves. Has it got a climber coming through it.?

Can you trace it back to the base and see. ?

If its an apple, your neighbours will not be happy f you chop it back. Ask the neighbours if it is bothering  you.

They respond to regular pruning, lightly trim it and feed it, and new shoots should grow.

Increase the humidity, water the gravel as well as the plants.

Is it too late?

Red onion bulbs wont wait, get them in now.

Mushrooms grow best in damp humid weather, now sounds ideal. If we have a heatwave, Autumn is the usual time.

Is it too late?

I don't think you have time to get chillis and peppers to fruiting size. Save for next year.

The rhubarb is perennial so grow it on and plant out. From seed to pulling sticks is three years.

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.
