    Closed!

    All traffic into the EU from UK is stopped from 11pm to night. Boris didn't realise that on declaring a new variant " spreading uncontrollably " in the UK, used to control the UK population, to the WHO, every other country would shut its borders!

To me the weight on the back of the tractor looks horrendous and the dainty little suffolk coulters don't look up to the job. It looks like a steam roller closely followed by smear...
