Cabomba though, is a real knee in the nads for the UK aquatic trade, as I'm told by one of my local aquarium shops that more of it is sold than any other plant- it is a staple of the trade.
What other aquatic plants are on there?

It's extremely helpful. It's important that these people know exactly how we feel about their desire to control the populace - using big government and the gradual removal of civil liberty.

It certainly will change, the problem is that we are seen by the general public as freaks. Why would you want to keep a snake when you can keep a cat ?
You make it sound like agreeing with me is some kind of sin. Whatever floats your boat. The fact is that we have a political class who want to strip us of our liberty and they started this in Brussels.

This is the exact reason why I have become disillusioned with Academics in recent months, and doubly so since the Referendum. Most of them are nothing but unadulterated pond scum, hiding behind a PhD while pushing their ideas, as their only real knowledge is the very small area they specialise in. They haven't the slightest clue about how real people work and neither do they understand why personal liberty is important, even if they don't agree with it. They need a map to cross a road!
