Regaining Sovereignty

William Hebditch - August 16th, 2018.

The hot summer seems to be fading. Nice to see a drop of rain, at least the lawn has greened up. I hope it doesn’t go into overtime and rain like last year.

The dry weather has been a bit of a boon for us, our very first dry cherry season. Actually picked Sweetheart cherries for the first and probably the last time in my career. We’re suffering from the effects of a cold wet spring. It’s so easy to forget how horrid it was back in April and early May when things were in flower. The lack of pollination weather, no insect activity all things that reduced fruit set and hence smaller crops. For us, fruit size has not been a problem and sugar levels are high making for nice quality eating fruit.

It will be interesting to see what our politicians can conjure up in the next 8 months. Will they sort out a brexit plan. Looking horribly unlikely at the moment.  If there’s no deal will the collapsing pound do us good or ill, good for our prices, disastrous trying to get workers from europe.  I don’t think many of us would stand the de facto wage cut our Romanians have taken over the last 2 years.

I wonder why the Brexiteers have gone so quiet about the £350,000,000 per week for the health service or even the 80 million Turks who were supposed to be queuing up to come here. For that matter why has the government not published all the analysis done on the likely effects o our economy?  Our government has certainly taken back control, what off, I’m not sure.

I’ll stop ranting and go and put away some more Victorias in the cold store.
