Is this the same Monsanto that selectively took quotations from a National 
Farmer's Union press release and put them into its advertisements to make it 
look as though the NFU gives unconditional support to its activities?    8-)

The NFU's full views are set out at http://www.nfu.org.uk/pubs/gmo.asp and 
the activities of its biotechnology working party are described at 
http://www.nfu.org.uk/pubs/biote.asp (Strangely, the press release in 
question seems to have done a runner!)

Regards,

Roger
