for fear of the wrath of the forum I have resisted mentioning the EU.....I have escaped lynching by the skin of my teeth.
however, Simon you have linked it to our gardens so (should be) safer
re our gardens, I think we should be out of the EU. It has meddled in our laws from forbidding us to grow certain varieties of vegetables to the chemicals we can use. We would have tightened up on many chemicals without the EU.....we aren't that backward
it is, or should be, about choice. The EU denies us any choice. It will be even more dictatorial.
Who knows what diktats will be issued about our gardens, our right to garden? To accommodate an exploding population here will we have to give up land to accommodate them? Locally there is a move to control bungalow space...no longer will a bungalow be deemed a retirement space. It is seen as a luxury we can no longer afford......it will no doubt incur excessive council tax charges to drive people into flats without garden space.
Europe has changed alarmingly and quickly over recent years, over recent months especially, and far from creating unity and peace europe is a squabbling, disorganised mess. We have seen nothing yet; following the referendum....make no mistake a "no" to europe will not be accepted...things will be far worse.
here in Cornwall we have benefitted from european money to help our economy....europe is now we were overpaid and wants the money back???
I hope the electorate holds its nerve and votes to keep our independence
