Food security: An excuse to introduce GM Frankenfoods?

Hilary Benn contends that if we want to be able to feed the population of the UK in 20 years, we’ll need to use technology to increase crop yields.

Is he trying to soften us up for GM ‘frankenfood‘ crops? Last month, the government secretly permitted GM trials in the UK, claiming that there was no possibility of contamination of neighbouring farms.

And yet GM foods have been proven to cause cancer and life-threatening allergic reactions. Are government ministers being paid by GM giants like Monsanto to put public health and the environment at risk?

In any case, Nick Herbert has exposed the extent to which Labour has destroyed farming in this country. We were self-sufficient once and we can become so again – without meddling from the EU or Labour know-nothing interventionists.
