Position on GM research Rothamsted – Jenny Jones and Rothamsted research protest

To the Green Party
Such a pity Jenny Jones does not support unbiased scientific research
into GM foods. I was wondering whether to support and vote for the
Green Party in the next election, but this means I will not now being
doing that. I am unable to vote for any Party in fact. Politicians
should support free independent and unbiased research not pander to a
scientifically illiterate and emotionally charged group of anti-GM
protesters. Is Jenny hunting with the hounds and running with the
hares? Please re-consider on this one.

“It is regrettable that the Green Party’s Jenny Jones has confirmed that she will be there to support direct action against publicly-funded research, particularly given that the wheat trial is expressly aimed at reducing the use of broad-spectrum insecticides which can damage farmland biodiversity.” Sense About Science
