GM: the depressing news continues

The chances of GM being grown in the UK continues to decline with a study that concludes that GM pollen can be carried for miles by bees. Of course, this all assumes that GM is a 'contamination' rather than simply another variety of the same plant. Once GM is viewed in this light, with strict rules on what can and cannot be declared 'GM free', there is little chance of economic production of GM varieties taking place.

Britain will accept GM in due course, years down the line, when it becomes blindingly obvious that it is grown and eaten successfully everywhere outside Europe.
