GM crops a ‘monstrous new development’?

PETER SIMPLE in The Daily Telegraph supports anti-genetically modified crop protesters who have been pulling up plants on test sites.

He calls it a “monstrous new development” that will wipe out songbirds because the seed-producing weeds on which they feed will have been eradicated.

He says it appears as though nothing will stop the biotechnology companies from imposing the crops on Britains countryside despite widespread opposition.
