    How late for linseed

    The best way to decide when to switch to a cover crop in my experience is when you know in your heart of hearts that you are only going to break even or worse and give yourself a load of work and expenditure which you may or may not be repaid. Then you can cost the cover crop seed which would be...

    No monopoly but up their among the best at it , what public service do you do ? Not enough, but this isn't really about me though is it? You can try and make it about me to change the subject or throw insults around at people because they don't share your opinion. But ultimately my point, and I...

    It's called civilisation. There's a lot of people who dedicate their lives for the good of society or humanity. Most are unknown and either pay their taxes or are too poor to be liable for tax in the first place. The royals don't have a monopoly on public service.

    This isn't about me though is it? I'm not going to start hurling insults at you to justify or degrade my argument. My point is that we live in a capitalist democracy where everyone does their bit and pays their way. I don't like the way the super rich shirk their tax paying responsibilities...

    Providing jobs isn't good enough justification for spending tax payers money. To suggest that the royals can't do their job without a royal yacht is fine but if they (or you for whatever reason) really want one, I don't think it should fall on the taxpayer to pay for it.

    Personally, I think it's pretty obscene the super rich swanning around on their yachts. As a rule they tend to avoid tax into the bargain If the royals want one they can afford it themselves. I would prefer to hire a few more nurses or pay them a bit more. By the way Give is an elected official...
