Not long ago, only a few weeks in fact, the EU, under pressure from environmentally aware people (not global warming scaremongers but people who REALLY care about the environment, agreed to ban neonicotinoid pesticides because of very strong evidence that these chemicals are the main cause of the great bee die off.
Said pesticides, you may be aware, are the ones growers of Monsanto genetically modified seed are contractually obliged to use because
Monsatan Monsanto seeds are genetically engineered to be resistant to the toxins in such pesticides.
So why are the cupid stunts in Westminster, led by Call Me Dave and his conservatives but with the support of Lib Dem and Labour leaders pushing for the lifting of bans on the introduction of genetically modified crops to the UK? Do the twats want to poison us or are they so spineless they dare not look at independent research like THIS and THIS that shows far from being safe, GM crops will do you about as much good as a spoonful of cyanide.
Yesterday minister Owen Patterson undid all his good work on denouncing wind farms as a money making scam created for Blair’s Corporate cronies, now he wants to hand over control of our countryside to Cameron’s corporate cronies Monsanto.
Mr Paterson said that GM offers wonderful opportunities that could benefit human health and the environment. (Benefit health Owen, Like THIS particular health benefit you mean – just one of many I must add to head off any science tits who come along trying to tell me one research project does not prove anything.
Patterson said GM production in the UK would mean less spraying of pesticides and less intensive farming. These are both lies. Monsanto Roundup herbicide and various pesticides (all toxic to humans) have to be sprayed on GM crops. You see the genetic modification used is not to make them immune to being eaten by caterpillars or chocked by weeds, it is to make them resistant to the active ingredients in those pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately humans have not been genetically modifies to make us pesticide and herbicide resistant.
Mr Paterson also said that an expansion of GM crops could lead to the creation of more nature reserves because it would allow more intensive farming, therefore freeing up space for biodiversity, nature and wilderness. (In spite of this parliamentary support)
Mr Paterson is battling to persuade officials in the European Union to lift current rules which only allow one type of maize to be grown in the UK.
Britain is pushing for scores of GM crops to be given the green light by EU regulators, including herbicide tolerant maize and sugar beet. The politiians are in Monsantos corporate pocked and now the evil corporate empire is recruiting farmers by promising (falsely) lower costs and bigger profits and a chance to point a shotgun at GM protesters and say “Get orf moi laaaaaaaand.
