Although I know Boris is keen to get get rid of the legislation that controls the production of GM foods, the current “consultation” hardly seems to get a mention in the press - perhaps because nobody with an opinion is included in the consultation.
Folk used to get hot under the collar about “Frankenstein Foods” but it’s almost as if the Tories are trying to get them - and genome editing - deregulated via the back door


Is anyone actually bothered?

Not sure, especially when you see the rubbish fed to the masses at the moment under the guise of 'healthy'.

Know what you mean. Manufacturers often stretch the point to maximise marketing opportunities but fully opening the door to genetically modified plants and animals is another level.
There’s something wrong about growing six-legged chickens in my book, even if it does help KFC.

The day isn't too far away, by way food rationing, when we are given taste paste, fullof vitamins, etc that will ensure were all kept in a narrow band of reasonable health.  Soylent Green goes down this route, and is famously a very good story.

Seems that the Coop  has joined in the debate although other supermarkets are still on the fence.
A lot of feed producers seem keen genetically modified feeds to give them a competitive edge but so far the issue has largely escaped the public’s attention - and that is the factor most likely to determine government policy.
