cameron proposes new policy to control immigration
Research has established that the prime reason for inward migration is the Conservative economy with its record employment..
Prime Minister David Cameron has suggested we have a referendum to stop immigration with a simple on/off referendum question.
If you want to stop immigration, vote for Jeremy Corbyn an the 'New', added lunacy, Labour Party, and destroy the economy again.
This will not only stop immigration, but it will also get rid of all those nasty entrepreneurs who are getting rich by employing people.
It will make those entrepreneurs go abroad where they can waste time making money.
This will also encourage people who want to work following them abroad, so's such stupid people can earn money instead of taking 'benefits'.
Now that will leave plenty of benefits for all the self-respecting people who have the sense not to demean themselves by working, and who
really appreciate the better Bbritain that socialism will inevitably produce.
This will all allow us to have even higher dole payments in an advanced country, this would make Britain a international leader and the best
country in the world

mandarin, tangerine, clementine, satsuma - are they different?
These fruits are cultivated varieties (cultivars) of Citrus reticulata,
a member of the Rutaceae family. In some varieties, particularly
some tangerines and satsumas, the peel is loose and can easily be removed by hand.
Other varieties of mandarin are are dancy and tangor.
Mandarins are so named because Chinese high government officials - the mandarins
- used to cultivate these trees commercially.
“The mandarin orange is considered a native of south-eastern Asia
and the Philippines. It is most abundantly grown in Japan, southern China,
India, and the East Indies, and is esteemed for home consumption in Australia.
It gravitated to the western world by small steps taken by individuals interested
in certain cultivars. Therefore, the history of its spread can be roughly
traced in the chronology of separate introductions.” [quoted from Fruits
of Warm climates by J. Morton]
Mandarin cultivars fall into several classes:
Class I, Mandarin
Class II, Tangerine: includes the clementine and the dancy.
In France, there is no such animal as a satsuma. There are clementines (difficult to peel and with pips) all year round, and mandarins at Christmas time (even more difficult to peel, but with skinnier pips).
at the beginning of the twentieth century, in an orphanage in Misserghin, near Oran in Algeria, the clementine was discovered by brother Clément (hence the fruit's namename!). He found a different tree from his usual specimens, and he would feed segments to his orphaned children. Clementines resulted from the natural hybridisation between a tangerine and a sweet orange. Thus, the mandarin flowers were 'pollinated' by an orange," says Franck Curk, research engineer at INRA (Institute Nationale des Récherches Agricoles). Sweet and not too acid, these fruits matured before their neighbours.
The first clémentiniers [clementine trees] were planted in Corsica in 1925 by Don Philip Semidei to Figaretto on the eastern plains of the island.
Cléméntines de Corse are notable by being the only citrus fruit sold with leaves atill attached. Leaves are normally removed before packing and sending to market to prevent the spread of disease. However, being grown in isolation on an island, Corsican clementine trees have been kept free of disease, so this exception is allowed. Being only harvested by hand enables the characteristic sprig of leaves to remain undisturbed. The fruit, when ripe, will still have some green areas. This is because the climate on the eastern side of Corsica, particularly in the valleys that shelter the fruit orchards, is very mild. Low temperatures will transform chlorophyll in the citrus fruit's skin into yellow or red pigments. Thus, green clementines may be perfectly ripe. These citrus fruit are only matured naturally, unlike Spanish fruit.
By 2007, the clémentine de Corse had won the IGP mark - Indication géographique protégée, or indication of geographic protection, so only fruit produced in Corsica can be called by the name, clémentine de Corse. Unfortunately, although this protection applies to the fruit, the leaves are not included, so now one can find supposed Clementines de Corse that come from Spain. Check carefully the crate labelling.
The fruit's sweet yet slightly acid flavour results from multiple criteria related to the expertise and orchards in which it is grown. "In Spain, farmers use a cold room for 'degreening' the fruit as well as post-harvest treatments, such as vegetable waxes or fungicides - this explains a longer shelf product", explains Franck Curk. The Clémentine de Corse IGP prohibits such practices.
- 130 producers
- 1,200 hectares
- 500,000 clementine trees
- Annual production of 17 to 20,000 tonnes (approx.)
- 0% of the productionis under the IGP label
- Plantations essentially of a small size, about 10 hectares and run by families.
• The dancy was first found in the grove of Col. G.L. Dancy at Buena
Class III: Satsuma
The satsuma orange [a mikan in Japanese.] is believed to have originated
in Japan about 350 years ago as a seedling of a cultivar. Satsuma was a
feudal principality in south/west Japan, that now roughly corresponds to
Most canned mandarin oranges are satsumas.
All citrus trees are classified within one genus, Citrus. They are
mostly interbreedable: that is to say there is only one “superspecies”.
This superspecies includes lemons and limes, as well as oranges.
Oranges are said to have originated in India (or even Vietnam) and were called na rangi in Sanskrit. Their Latin labels are Citrus sinensis and Citrus aurantium.
The original orange is bitter compared to modern varieties and is called
the sour orange, or bitter, bigarade or Seville orange.
The navel orange is the result of a single mutation found in an orchard of
sweet oranges belonging to a Brazilian monastery in 1820.
The grapefruit, Citrus paradis. “About 1948, citrus specialists
began to suggest that the grapefruit was not a sport of the pummelo but an
accidental hybrid between the pummelo and the orange”. Variations include
- Pummelo/Pomelo/Shaddock: the principal ancestor of the grapefruit;
- Minneola: a tangarine/grapefruit cross that can be recognized by "the
- Sweeties: a pummelo/grapefruit cross. Looks like a green grapefruit and
Tangelos: a tangerine/grapefruit/orange cross. The ugli is a particular variety.

Here is a note written by a very famous fellow. The note does not appear to be on the net, so maybe you can guess without hope of cheating.
"Have you ever considered how utterly impossible it is that Shaw of
Dublin could have written his wonderful plays. Is it not clear that
they were really written by Sidney Webb, L.L.B. Shaw was an utterly
ignorant man. His father was an unsuccessful business man always on
the verge of bankruptcy, just like old Shakespear or John Dickens.
Shaw had a very narrow escape from the police for setting fire to a
common. He was a disgrace to his school, where he acquired little Latin and less Greek. He got no secondary education and came to London
an unknown and obscure provincial. And this is the man to whom people
attribute his omniscience, the knowledge of public affairs, of law,
of medicine, of navigation &c. &c. &c. which informs the plays and
prefaces of G.B.S. Absurd! Webb, the L.L.B., the man who carried all
before him in examinations in his boyhood, the upper division civil
servant of the Foreign & Colonial Office, the author of Industrial
Democracy &c, was clearly the man."
