Nature has its own methods of preparing for the unexpected such as the current severe drought conditions, and its consequences. What a shame those entrusted with the responsibility to govern this great country, and carry out the will of the majority, having asked the question, do not have the same in built integrity and understanding about what is required to ensure the survival of Great Britain.
It is quite astonishing to watch as the months and years have gone by since the Referendum, the escalating contempt that Mr Barnier in particular, and his unelected cronies in Brussels have for our Prime Minister, her ministers and the people of this country.
It is beyond belief that there are still those who wish to tie the UK to the EU indefinitely, dominated by bullying tactics, and bound to the protectionist racket which benefits above all Germany and France.
Surely by now it is obvious that this undemocratic corrupt institution is well past its sell by date, and if we wish to regain our independence, and increase opportunities to trade globally, production from manufacturing and agriculture, we must escape the clutches of this xenophobic organisation.
The weather continues to put farmers and growers under pressure. It is still early to combine some crops, but many ceased growing weeks ago resulting in reduced yield and uncertain grain quality.
This week we shall have another go at the winter barley, some of which is well ready, but due to secondary germination contains a high proportion of unripe grain and straw. The combination of ripe and green grains, once in the barn, will suffer and overheat.
The plight of many vegetable and soft fruit growers has been highlighted in the farming press and media, and despite the ability of most to irrigate, this is not possible for all, or is the best method to grow these crops.
There will be shortages going into the autumn and winter, but even now salad crops are being imported to keep supermarket shelves topped up.
The livestock industry is also affected. As grass has stopped growing, and maize crops appear to be half their usual abundance, some farmers are cutting and feeding direct to cattle, when it would normally be ensilaged for winter feed. Prices for all bought in bedding and animal feed are escalating. Putting further pressure on production costs.
Having had such a long hard wet winter, reserves of winterfeed and bedding are already at an all-time low. The severe drought on top of that puts pressure and stress upon an already financially and physically squeezed agricultural sector which is of deep concern.
The risk of fires has been demonstrated all too clearly with yet another destructive fire on the Downs last week. Flints create risk as just one spark, as they pass through the combine has the possibility of setting the whole field alight.
Vigilance amongst us all is essential, which includes members of the public. A spark from a BBQ, a carelessly flung cigarette, and lighting hazardous dangerous Chinese lanterns, can cause catastrophic damage, and financial and physical loss.
The stories of youths deliberately setting light to crops and undergrowth is truly shocking. I sincerely hope they are appropriately disciplined, and understand the enormity of their actions.
Life is hard for the farming sector, we already see the toll on mental health amongst our neighbours and colleagues. At times like these when even Mother Nature is piling on the pressure, we must take the time to check on them and ensure that they are coping both mentally and physically.
