    Yes.  Can see this thread causing some agro Diddy!  Is a discussion about politics wise do you think?

    I think it's probably too early to say, but at present I can't see Labour winning and hope it remains that way.  They've messed it up every time they've been in power previously.

    Political arguments are probably better in the forums of the daily newspapers, not a gardening forum.

  • Climate change is an issue that constantly crops up, or seemingly becoming newsworthy every other day for some reason or other. I have a problem with Climate Change. Agreed, there are some very basic things that we can all do to avoid the systematic "man-made" destruction of our planet BUT, and this is what the scientists seem all to keen to forget or gloss over, this planet of ours has been in existence an awfully long time and in comparison man has been around about the length of a single strand of straw in the worlds largest hay bale and in all that time its been turning, cooling down, heating up, cooling down and heating up. Its done this since the birth of the planet and will continue to do so. So whilst I recognise that Climate Change and Global Warming are causes for concern, man is responsible for such a small percentage of it and none of us can control mother nature! Morning all!

    I could not agree more heather,but I do still think that we all can take steps and make a change.I personaly think that the " giant food stores " could make the biggest change by demanding packageing to be kept to a minimum and to change over to bio-degradable carrier bag's.They should make a small charge for the carrier bags to encourage people to bring their own shopping bag,s with them.
