No surprise – here it is.

UK.gov serves up GM food as price hike fix (The Register).

Despite all evidence to the contrary, the Government proclaims:
“There is only one technology likely to deliver and that is GM”.

The warnings of those who cared about the environment were ignored for decades, because not to do so might have harmed short-term profits and career prospects. Now the shit is hitting the fan, and climate change is being used to justify the production of mutated, manufactured crops that should never be encountered outside the laboratory, nuclear power and whatever other unpopular measures can be pushed through.

The Friends of the Earth site urges “Tell your MP not to fall for GM hype“. Let them know you’re not going to swallow this.
