Help! Immortal Weeds

We can't seem to get rid of this weed. We've tried to dig it out and it's sprouts again from the tinniest little piece left. We've bought the strongest possible weed killer but it kills the treated leaf but doesn't get to the root. Its leaf punches through the soil and then unfurls and continues as a single stems into a really large leaf. Its driving us nuts so any help offered would be gratefully received! ! Anyone know what it is a gardener thought it might be hogweed but looking at pictures on the Web it doesn't look the same at all.

    If your pic wont upload, try making it smaller (shrink the file size)
    Sometimes that helps

    Picture?   Use the camera icon on the right of the message box.  If it doesn't load, try reducing the size as there is a limit.

    Probably completely off the mark here , and guessing 'blind' isn't always good practice , but your problem sounds similar to a thread the other night ; could it be Acanthus leaves that are re-appearing ?image
