I don't mind which way up the image is, I can turn the screen upside down , I wanted to see the shape of the leaves. I think it might be an echium. How big is it?

Remove those distorted non fruit and dispose of them. It's not a cure but gets some of the spores out of the way. It's a fungal thing but nothing to treat it with as far as I know. I think the proper plums are safe at this stage, they won't be affected now.

One is a plum affected by Taphrina pruni. Pocket plum.

Can we see the last from a different angle please

Veronica spicata red fox

Knowing the colour of Veronica spicata, (blue/mauve) I very much doubt if it comes in red. The dark pink you have seen is more likely.

What is this?

yes I agree, Probably Malva sylvestris

Hedge pest identification and advice required!

That would be my assessments as well. Those little insects wouldn't be able to produce the damage seen

Carex pendula, aka Pendulous Sedge. 

Invasive by seed and can get huge.
