Hollie Hock, as expected, your remarks were offensive...

Jinxy, well said.   

we are heading into a few weeks of increasingly nasty and dirty politics, increasingly hypocritical and deceitful politicians and increasingly passionate viewpoints.  No point in catering for delicate people taking offence, even on a garden forum......this referendum is about our safety, our population and our rights. Not about isolation or narrow-minded blinkered thinking.  No time for petty point scoring.  We will have to live with the outcome ....the youngsters and their families will we must get it right.

Lyn, difficult right now but one day you will look back with pleasure and satisfaction how you treated your dad.

Well said Tetters indeed.    That may stick now 

Reminds me of the cricket commentaries when Jonners and the rest discussed cricket over their cakes and tea 

the cheating government leaflets will arrive next week.  If this had been a 100 metres race the govt would have been disqualified. 

Hopefully, people will see sense....taking everything into account........and vote to leave EU.  We will thrive and be safe

Jinxy, they wont rot.  And I repot several times and plant deeper each time with a corresponding pinching out. Deny any buds or flowers too.  Try it for large, bushy sturdy long flowering plants

Steve, can you give us all the "correct" opposed to "incorrect" facts?    Clearly you know it all......or do you actually know as much as the rest of us?  Viz., nothing! 

What ever side is supported it cannot be denied that the issue is worrying for many of us.
