    Hmm.
    Apart from oil seed rape what other nectar bearing GMOs do you think are about to invade Scotland on the coat tails of Monsanto.

    I don't think Scotland has the climate for Brazil Nuts, Soya, cotton or papaya!
    Have you done your research Eric or is this just personal speculation?
    let's have your list then.
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; ;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    OSR, Phacelia, beans, peas, potatoes (Honey dew via aphid !), clover, Maize(pollen)
    Soya, alfalfa (think Global Warming!).
    Seed nurseries growing turnips, cabbage, in fact all the economically viable food crops. (all Monsanto controlled ultimately)

    Could I trouble you for some evidence?

    Soya, alfalfa and maize are already GM'd, Monsanto will not stop until they have patents for everything we eat and wear -try GM cotton,which is causing mass suicides of Indian farmers as their fields become choked with resistant weeds and the become bankrupt! Fact! Comments on the Arctic seed bank in private GM company control, please!

    I think I already posted in another thread that the main problem I have with GM is companies like Monsanto.

    Alfalfa and Soya will not grow outdoors in the UK.
    Soya in particular is a delicate little crop in my experience and I have grown both.
    If you need to invoke Global warming that sounds like a fairly weak argument to me and you will fall out with your climate change denier friend Mr Borderbeeman.

    Don't really have anything to say on Monsanto to be perfectly honest as I don't really see how it's relevant to beekeeping. I'm a bit of a lefty so I'm all for robust legislation and regulation of industry and I don't see why multinationals should be any different which is about as much of an opinion as I can muster.

    As for abuse, you've offered your opinion of the poster rather than the points or questions they raised on more than one occasion, but I'll take leaving that avenue of "discussion" for the time being as progress.

    Are you then in denial of Climate Change? Think BIG! The experts tell us that twmperature are rising - how fast is the question! I can disagree with somebody's idea but I do not try to belittle them. LIve and let live!

    Agreed! But the ones's in question are not regulated. That is the root of the problem!
