'Lord Mucker studying his crops'

Three environmental pressure groups, 'The Soiled Association', 'Purplepeace' and 'Fiends of the Globe' have formed an association against those demons of the modern world, The Royal Institution, The Royal Society and The Institute of Biology.

We have been forced into this action by the continued degeneration of our campaigns by these three organisations said a spokesperson outside their headquarters near Ambridge Organics.

'It is simply impossible for us to continue to stand firm against the continued onslaught of scientific data which shows we are alone in thinking that we have a credible scientific position on GM crops. Just because millions of people have been eating this stuff for many years and mutation breeding is the very basis of most plant breeding does not mean that we should resort to logic when it comes to our position'. If we choose to use methods developed in the 18th Century and hang the skulls of dead sheep on fences to ward off carrot root fly that is our right and the idea that anyone should question our position is intolerable.

Meanwhile The Policy Director for The Soiled Association, Lord Mucker said that trials started in 1932 were on the point of showing the real benefits of an organic approach to food production and that he was sure they would prove his case. The first forty years work were ruined by a series of disease and pest attacks.
