  A peculiar English drought
Our overseas members may have heard that we are suffering from an extreme drought in England, particularly in the South East. If you are wondering if you should send us emergency supplies, don't bother. In this peculiar English drought it rains heavily every day and we are kept busy mopping up floods, emptying overfull containers and trying to prevent plants from rotting.
The real reason for the problem is that corrupt and inept politicians have forced the construction of huge amounts of extra housing in the region without providing any equivalent extra provision of services. It seems that they expect rainfall to be always above average rather than providing for adequate storage to cover years which are below average which seem to come as a total surprise and shock to them.
Unfortunately this propaganda flood about the 'drought' is only one example of the increasingly 1984 like use of language to mean precisely the opposite of the truth for political reasons.

This Blog will note updates to the Cactus-Mall and other related websites like the British Cactus and Succulent Society and the Mesemb Study Group. I will give my thoughts on the current state of the Cactus and Succulent hobby and discuss topical subjects which I think need airing. I hope it can be used by others to give us feedback on the development of the now 10 years old Cactus-Mall and what you think of its usefulness and ways in which we might improve this.
