Apparently spruce tips and Woodruff are also edible. But foragers face not only culinary but also legal challenges: if it were to come to that, make sure that you ask the permission of the landowner before you start picking things, but do not under any circumstances do so in any of the Royal Parks. On the upside, the Wildlife and Countryside Act permits picking on common land for personal use, subject only to any local bylaws.
If nothing else, we are all learning a lot about constitutional law at the moment, and matters such as the application of standing order number 24 to give marching orders to the government. Interesting discussions can be had on whether we are witnessing a constitutional or a parliamentary crisis; but it is rather ironic that Parliament has now been prorogued to make it more difficult for MPs to stand in the way of a no-deal Brexit, given that Brexit at least originally started off as being all about restoring sovereignty to that very same Parliament.
Equally ironically, by proroguing Parliament, it was the Prime Minister who forced MPs and their Speaker to put him and his school boy antics quite robustly back in his box now rather than to give him a chance at further negotiations with the EU first. The good news is that they had no qualms doing just that.
To that extent, Boris Johnson appears to have achieved more in terms of reuniting parliamentarians than anybody else since the whole Brexit thing started off. Is it coincidence that Theresa May was pictured recently with the biggest smile on her face anybody could remember? The Inner House of the Scottish Court of Session has now ruled the prorogation of Parliament unlawful after the High Court in London found to the contrary that the whole thing was quite ok or at least a political rather than a legal issue. As at the time of writing, we now await with interest what the Supreme Court has to say on the topic.
But perhaps the most extraordinary thing is that we now have a Prime Minister who would rather lie dead in a ditch than to abide by the letter and spirit of the law of the land.
Case 44 - Just Unlucky?
There were three dead the last time a major typhoon hit mainland Japan, too. That was in September. Typhoon Faxai was the strongest to strike the country's Kanto region since and, in addition to the deaths, were injured. As a result of a power outage affecting , there were two further deaths from heatstroke. Even so, few would argue Japan are not fine hosts of the Rugby World Cup. They deserve it, they have been brilliant at it. Coming here in typhoon season was the mistake, not coming here per se. World Rugby will say that the demands of the various domestic leagues make this period in the calendar the only one that is feasible.
If so, it is their job to plot and deliver the alternative. World Rugby just had to make plain the competition was moving east and then open negotiations on how that would be achieved. The lead time between the award and the event was more than a decade.

It was far from impossible to avoid typhoons. FIFA wrongly, corruptly, sent their competition to Qatar in summer.
At least, however, they conceded the recklessness of that decision by repositioning it as a winter tournament. Now we have a festival of football that nobody voted for — in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, — and that everyone knows was part of a crooked process. Yet at least it is not going to be played in upwards of 40 degree heat. At least people are no longer at risk of death. Qatar is far from satisfactory but it is the best that can be made of a bad job. To achieve this compromise required FIFA to make deals with some of the most powerful sports administrations in the world: Europe's football leagues.
World Rugby should have planned for this eventuality and come up with alternatives. They had to make nice with American sports networks whose tidy domestic schedules were now to be invaded by a global soccer tournament. And no doubt it cost. But they did it.

Just as World Rugby should have been able to take their competition to Japan without the risk of a typhoon stealing the show. It required preparation, negotiating skills and probably, yes, compensation, too. Yet at the end of those negotiations, there would have been a tournament worthy of its dutiful host nation. Instead, the realities of the Pacific typhoon season are unavoidably apparent. Much as they should have been 10 years ago, had anyone seen possibilities beyond the commercial.
What happens when a game is called off? The match is treated as a draw. England and France will be awarded two points each. They go through as group winners with France runners-up.

This is how the table will look, with USA and Tonga yet to play their final match. Who and when do England play next? They are very likely to face Australia in the quarter-finals on October In that case, England would face Wales. Their game against Japan on Sunday could also be cancelled, which would see them eliminated. The match could be rescheduled for Monday, although that goes against competition regulations that rule out postponing pool matches. What if the games can't be played?
Organisers can put aside two extra days for those games to be completed. If they cannot be rescheduled, the winner will be determined in the following order of priority: points from pool stage, points difference from all matches, try difference from all matches, points scored, most tries and, finally, world ranking. If the final is cancelled, the world champions will be the team with the best points difference across their World Cup matches. If the finalists are still level, the winner will be determined by try difference, then points scored, then most tries.
After all that, if the teams cannot be separated, they will be declared joint winners.
