Keep Britain GMO-free

I SOMETIMES think that British farmers have taken leave of their senses. Do they really think they will gain from growing genetically modified crops?

The recent National Opinion Poll showing that most members of the public do not want GMOs in their food shows that farmers will be due for even more public vilification.

What is the point of such schemes as the ACCS if companies such as Novartis and Monsanto force their environmentally damaging and unnatural crops on us, at the same time tying farmers even more tightly to their apron strings?

Keep Britain GMO-free!
