Speed Up Introduction Of GM Crops Says Increasingly Stalinist Coalition Government
by Ian R Thorpe
The Coalition government has announced it is was working behind the scenes to encourage European Commission officials to relax rules on so-called “Frankenstien foods”.
The news came after Owen Paterson, the Government’s Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph that GM food should be grown and sold widely in Britain. Strange, the Coalition don't have a mandate for this and it is not likely to go down well with rank and file Conservative and Lib Dem members. It does however demonstrae even further the drift of the Lib Dems and Conservatives towards the position ocupied recently by Labour at the authoritarian, anti - democvratic end of the political spectrum.
Paterson also described consumer opposition to the technology as a “complete nonsense” and said the artificially developed food had “real environmental benefits”. People were even eating it in London restaurants without knowing it, he said. Well he didn't lie about one thing, we don't know what we are eating in London restaurants; soup the chef pass pissed in, cheese sauce the waiter has gobbed in and meat that twenty four hous earlier was being dumped in a skip aoutside a supermarket according to recent news reports. And those unfortunate enough to dine in a certain restaurant in Accrington were unknowingly noshing on human remains.
Some senior Government figures privately believe that the technology — which can increase crop yields and prevent disease — is essential in assuring Britain’s future food security and to avoid dependency on imports. The only question that springs to mind about that is how the fuck much were they paid by Monsanto to say that?
Any move to allow the use of GM crops could be highly controversial, but Mr Paterson dismissed critics of the technology as “humbugs” and said that the case for GM food now needed to be made “emphatically”.

Jeffery M Smith, author of Seeds of Deception (read a ten page overview of the book - you will be outraged at how once again government and academics (A parcel of rogues in a nation, bought and sold for corporate gold" to misquote Robert Burns)have once again sold us out to corporate fascism.
This morning Downing Street backed Mr Paterson’s comments, insisting that the European Commission should relax rules on the development of the technology as soon as possible. Asked if GM foods should be made more widely available to consumers in the UK, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “This is something that is regulated at a European level by the European Commission.
“The Commission is currently looking at ways to make the regulatory system more efficient and more effective, and we are engaging with that because we think it would be possible to speed things up.
“We think this should be based on the science and we need to ensure public safety but if we can speed up a slow system then we should do that.”
OK, let's look at the science:
Proponents claim that genetically modified (GM) crops:
are safe to eat and more nutritious
benefit the environment
reduce use of herbicides and insecticides
increase crop yields, thereby helping farmers and solving the food crisis
create a more affluent, stable economy
are just an extension of natural breeding, and have no risks different from naturally bred crops.
However, a large and growing body of scientific research and on-the-ground experience indicate that GMOs fail to live up to these claims. Instead, GM crops:
can be toxic, allergenic or less nutritious than their natural counterparts
can disrupt the ecosystem, damage vulnerable wild plant and animal populations and harm biodiversity
increase chemical inputs (pesticides, herbicides) over the long term
deliver yields that are no better, and often worse, than conventional crops
cause or exacerbate a range of social and economic problems
are laboratory-made and, once released, harmful GMOs cannot be recalled from the environment.
The scientifically demonstrated risks and clear absence of real benefits have led experts to see GM as a clumsy, outdated technology.
The spokesman said the Government’s position on GM food was that “it is provided it is used safely and responsibility it can deliver benefits and held address the challenge of global food security. We believe it should be dealt with in a safe way. Obviously there is a regulatory environment which we need to respect and we have to ensure public safety, and take decisions based on the scientific evidence.”
But as we have just seen, when the scientific evidence is inconvenient it is isnored as was the case with Global Warming. This week The Prime Minister's Office backed Mr Paterson’s comments, insisting that the European Commission should relax rules on the development of the technology as soon as possible.
Asked if GM foods should be made more widely available to consumers in the UK, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “This is something that is regulated at a European level by the European Commission. The Commission is currently looking at ways to make the regulatory system more efficient and more effective, and we are engaging with that because we think it would be possible to speed things up. We think this should be based on the science and we need to ensure public safety but if we can speed up a slow system then we should do that.”
Ah, that science stuff again. but as we have seen there is as much scientific evidence pointing to the fact that GM crops are crap.
The spokesman said the Government’s position on GM food was that “it is used safely and responsibility it can deliver benefits and held address the challenge of global food security. We believe it should be dealt with in a safe way. Obviously there is a regulatory environment which we need to respect and we have to ensure public safety, and take decisions based on the scientific evidence.”
Now I don't intend to comment on the "science" because my attitude to plant biology is that nature gets on very well by itself, a little bit better when helped by those who work the land and whenever scientists try to interfere the result is always a catastrophe.
In principle I am not against GM crops, I don't think easting GM tomatoes will make anyone grow two heads but have seen plenty of serious evidence that challenges the dogmas of the Church of Sciencology which proclaim that only by ensuring there is no fod crop in the world which is not grown from GM seed can we secure the food supply. Genetic moification is only one things, plants also need water, nutrients in the soil and carbon dioxide in the air. And currently we face shortages of water due to overtpopulation, dwindling reserves of fertilizer chemicals and Church of Sciencology's Global Waqrming cult wanting to suck all the CO2 out of the atmosphere to stop the planet from frying.
Fry or starve? It's a grim choice?
Is that the choice though or are we being lied to again, are GM crops just another pseudo scientific scam like wind turbines and solar panels? We know that science has always been fascism's whore so to find out, all we have to do is follow the money.
I said we cannot comment on the biology. What the Daily Stirrer can comment on however is the business case and the politics. And both the business and political cases are lousy. Likewise the ethics of handing control of the food supply to corporations with a track record of melfeasance, deception, and fascistic behaviour such as Monsanto,
GM Crops - How Corporations Plan To Rule And Ruin The World
If there is so much risk and the benefits are so unpredictable why do we read of so much scientific research finding in support of GM food and so little against? you might well ask. Here's why:
Seed Companies Control GM Crop Research. Independent (i.e. privately funded) researchers must ask corporations for permission before publishing independent research on genetically modified crops as the seed is protected by patents. That restriction must end before we can have impartial information on the benefits and drawbacks of commiting ourselves to handing control of our global foo]d supply to a few corporations.
Politically it is a fascist's wet dream which is why Soros, the Rothschilds and the rest of the The New World Order elitists and hangers on like Obama, Cameron & company are so very very keen. It's really only about contril.More info from a Sceptic's p.o.v at GM Watch
UK's First GM crops enriched with nutrients ready for harvest
With public opinion and a significant (but ignored by mainstream media strongly opposed to the introduction of Genetically Modified foods one would think that politicians, having lost the trust of voters, might hold back on this one. But no, as usual they are sidelining the public interest and ignoring public opinion in order to push the interests of the corporate cronies.
Playing God In The Garden. The Risks Of Messing About With Nature.
As the corrupt politicians, greedy corporate businesses and insane scientists stepo up their efforts to assure the public that food containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) is safe, why is public opposition growning. OK, recently exposures of corporate corruption, scientific fraud and politicical dishonest have destroyed trust but is there more to it than that?
Genetically Modified Food Crops - Complacency Is No Way To Fight Corporate Fascism.
Adovcates of genetically modified food crops, particularly the GM versions of staple foods such as wheat, corn, soya beans and potatoes say 'the science is settled' and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) pose not risk to human health or the environment and will feed the world's poor. Not so say independent scienctific studies, GM crops are risky, do not provide increased yields and will only result in handing control of the food supply to some very untrustworthy corporate interests.
New GMO Approval Will Go Ahead Despite Public Outcry.
Corporate monopoly men and control freak politicians, aided by their Dr. Death scientists are determined to force genetically modified (GM) foods on an very sceptical public. If there was any truth in the claims that GM crops can feed the world and are safe, the public would not be sceptical, but the genetically engineered organisms now being developed are modified to be resistant to highly toxic chemicals to which humans and animals have no resistance.
Independent Scientists Demolish The Lies About GMOs And The Safety Of Glyphosate
The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity. This article reports a conference at which independent scientists (i.e. those not funded by biotech corporations) expose the lies and corruption behind claims that GM crops are safe. Say no to GMO.

The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity, supported by the masses of ordinary punters who support common sense solutions and whose suspicion of big money science is based on its track record of disaster, catastrophe and unforeseen consequences. Say no to GMO.
Pesiticides To Blame For Bee Extinction, Not Natural Causes
Just as the seasons and the phases of the zodiac go in cycles, like the tides and the cycle of renewal, so the attempts to suppress scientific debate about ways in which scientists attempts to control nature are destroying the environment follow on in a seemingly unchangeable order. At this time of year it is bee comony collapse, next it will be extreme weather events
UK Government Collaborating With The GM Biotech Sector To Get Toxic GM Shite Introduced Into Britain.
We have already witnessed allegedly democratic governments collaborating with corporate pirates to the detriment of citizens best intertests, now we are seeing it again. As a moutain of evidence stacks up to confirm that concerns about the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and showing claims of increased crop yilds to be exaggerated, politicians with financial links to the biotech companies are queueing to spout corporate propaganda an support of this toxic shite.
The Mad Scientists Mania For Genetically Modifying Everything
Genetically Modified (GM) organisms? The science is setttled right, the only way to feed the world's growing population is to accept GM foods and hand control of the human food chain to some of the nastiest, most fascistic corporate busineses on earth, right? Well fortunately it is not as clear cut as that, independent research shows GM crops do not give increased yields and do pose very significant risks for humans, wildlife and the environment.
