Not near you unfortunately Steve, but thanks anyway.

Have you got yours yet?

Still no leaflet here.........I learnt that England has had theirs first, Wales and Scotland to follow.

I was talking to colleagues the other day and I was surprised how many people haven't decided which way they will vote. I think there is such a level of mistrust with what any politicians are saying

I've read with interest the stuff of the trade agreement, exit timescales if we were too leave. Things that I know very little about. I've also had more conversations about it than I thought  I would, so I guess this thread has opened my ears and brain to other information. But certainly not too taxing  for me 

On the other side of this, I saw the headline in the hateful Daily Mail about muslim ghettos and I thought that this would be here and it was. I think it's gone now though. So it's easy for hatred and biogotry to spill out in discussions like this. Bound to happen. So these sort of attitudes aren't welcome to my ears but I accept that people hold though. This forum is just a reflection of everday people.

When we know the outcome, someone could start a monthly debate thread maybe?

Possible subjects could be Does God Exist? Is Donald Trump the new Hitler? Is it morally right for junior doctors to take strike action?

Bound to be consensus with like minded people amongst that lot

Thanks nut, they look like the one that I think is white, if that makes sense  is species diversity when a plant of a different species just looks a little different? I grew the odd looking one from seeds from seedaholic

Looking forwarding to see them flower, will post pic then
