Referendum, Doesn't it make you spit!!

Posted: 19/06/2016 at 19:07

Be fair Hosta,,,,,,,,,,the Remain lot have no more idea about their figures than do the Brexit lot.  I'm ashamed to think that most of these people represent us.

I pity anyone trying to work out their vote based on the half assed figures/statistics that are being bandied about.

I made my mind up ages ago......well before statistics came into the equation...based on what I've seen and experienced over the last 40 years.  

I'd prefer to be part of Europe ...........not only because I have lived there but because i I am ever optimistic that the Eurocrats can eventually be dealt with.  At present, they are dreadfully wasteful but no different from our own Govt.

The problem with bandying about this figure of £350 m a week is that it's debatable whether that is a true figure when taking everything else into account.

Should it be correct ( the operative word being "should" and with the financial institues record, one has to wonder ), where will it be used ?

It COULD be used to give every citizen a couple of quid, it COULD be used for Newt Preservation, the NHS, protection of Green Field Sites - basically anything else that I or any one of you can think of.  I suspect it will simply disappear into the coffers and we will not notice any benefits - personal or general.

I could be wrong of course

My newts are doing well if anyone is interested

Leadfarmer..........if you don't have nurseries local to you ( or you don't have nurseries you are happy with ) there is a thread started by Verdun last year ( ? ) entitled The Good Guys. Most are on line suppliers but obviously, depending on your location, you may find a Good Guy close to home.

Might be worth while checking out to see what's what

What are these plants lacking?

As Dave says, it looks very much like common Laurel.......once established, it rarely suffers from problems IMO
