With the latest disappointing Defra report feeling like a betrayal of confidence, I decided to write to my MP. asking for an independent report on the neonics we all hate so much. At first , I received a bog standard reply reiterating clap-trap from the bog-standard data base. Infuriated, I then wrote another letter, this time with few holes barred as to what I thought about : a: bog-standard replies from data bases & b: what I thought about governments that allowed these poisons to be casually used without proper research. This last letter got past the bog-standard & I am now waiting for a response from the actual minister, who, his secretary assures me, will be looking into the several salient points raised about the use of neonics & bees.
So pull out your fingers, folks, & get typing from the heart to your MP with some salient facts thrown in & lets stop the neonics at least until proper research has been concluded!
