THERESA May’s Cabi­net may be in com­plete chaos but her min­is­ters in the House of Lords are dis­pens­ing use­ful pub­lic in­for­ma­tion.

Don’t try to erad­i­cate the in­va­sive gar­den pest Ja­panese knotweed by eat­ing it, for ex­am­ple. Chil­dren in Ja­pan ap­par­ently do munch on the shoot but ru­ral af­fairs min­is­ter Baron – ahem – Gar­diner, says: “I would not ad­vise it. I don’t think that is a very sen­si­ble pro­posal for this coun­try.” Thanks for that.
