Gardening Heroes And Heroins

It's not all doom and gloom. This summer may have been cold and damp, but the weather didn't harm the gardens and we've seen plenty of beautiful flowers this year. This is the front page of this week's "Helmand Toady", Afghan sister paper of the famous "Hackney Toady", celebrating this year's bumper crop. With plenty of help from Britain, our friends in Helmand have surpassed all previous harvests of stunning blooms. I'm sure they'll send plenty of these flooding into the markets of Hackney shortly, to brighten up the coming Autumn and Winter.
Bloomin' bootiful

My dear Luke,

Well spotted! I see, on page two of the Helmand Toady, that the recent US-made Tajik-Afghan bridge will enable there to be a substantial increase in the exports of all those lovely poppy products to Western markets. Thank you, Uncle Sam!

Do you know if the Council is taking any initiatives to increase trade with our Afghan twin? Maybe, now we've exhausted our welcome in Israel, we could plan an all-expenses fact-finding trip - via Goa, perhaps?

Yours affectionately,

Thanks for publicising the opening of our World Trade Bridge, which will certainly help boost floral trade. I'll have a word with Julian and see what we can do about more direct Hackney initiatives. In the meantime, let's all look forward to this year's Poppy Day!
